Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics

MID-CONTINENT INSTRUMENTS AND AVIONICS said its
MD302 Standby Attitude Module is being offered as the digital
standby display in the Bell Helicopter 407GX, Enstrom Helicopter
480B-G, and the MD Helicopters MD900 Explorer.
According to the company, SAM is the first digital standby to
provide attitude, altitude, airspeed, slip, vertical trend, and interfaced heading information in an advanced 2-inch format. The
high-definition, two-screen display compliments the flight deck and
provides a seamless transition from the primary flight displays to
the standby display during an emergency situation.
Weighing 1.6 pounds, the compact, self-contained device offers
selectable horizontal and vertical orientation, allowing flexible
cockpit installation. SAM fits in less panel space than a standard
set of 2- or 3-inch mechanical instruments, and the built-in battery
provides more than one hour of emergency power in the case of
electrical failure on the aircraft.
"SAM's flexible orientation and compact size have proven to
be a tremendous benefit to the rotorcraft market," said TOM
GENOVESE, director of sales for Mid-Continent Instruments and
Avionics.

AEA member company PHOENIX HELIPARTS announced
a partnership with True Blue Power, a division of Mid-Continent
Instrument Co. Inc., to pursue a series of FAA Part 27 STCs for
the installation of the True Blue Power TB17 Advanced Lithium-ion
Battery into many of the airframes PHP supports. Initial STC certification plans for the TB17 include the MD Series helicopters, with
anticipated completion in early 2016.
"The TB17 is a main-ship battery that provides significant
weight savings when compared to older, lead-acid and NiCad
batteries," said TINA CANNON, president of Phoenix Heliparts.
"PHP and Phoenix Heli-Support service a wide range of military,
commercial and private aircraft, including Bell, MD and Airbus
helicopters. It requires less maintenance, offers cooler engine
starts, faster recharge rates, and better cold-weather performance. Our customers need every ounce of useful load. The
weight savings alone is tremendous. It translates into more fuel
and equipment on board."

FreeFlight Systems
FREEFLIGHT SYSTEMS extended its Radar
Altimeter product line to add a Level B capable
system to meet the stringent design safety
requirements for Part 29 rotorcraft.
According to the company, the FreeFlight
Systems FRA-5500 Radar Altimeter maintains the
same form, fit and functionality of the RA-4X00
series line of TSO'd Radar Altimeters with the added
assurances of Level B software. The FRA-5500
enables compliance for Part 29 operators who need
to satisfy the FAA final rule requiring installation of
radar altimeters.
The TSO-approved systems are widely deployed
in helicopter fleets, including some of the largest
HEMS operations worldwide. They are part of a
broader range of rotorcraft avionics from FreeFlight
Systems, including ADS-B, WAAS/GPS and other
applications.
The compact, lightweight systems are designed
for any aircraft that operates over water or rough
terrain, at nighttime, in close ground proximity, and
in other environments lacking visual cues to the
ground, landscape or flight path.
The FRA-5500 is certified to TSO-C87 and meets
DO-178B Level B standards.
