SINGAPORE, February 11, 2020 – Astronautics Corporation of America’s AFI4700 RoadRunner Electronic Flight Instrument (EFI) has received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) validation from the India Directorate General of Civil Aviation for A109E helicopters.

“The FAA STC validation from India is another significant step in Astronautics helping helicopter operators around the world to realize the cost, ease, and safety benefits when retrofitting their aircraft with a RoadRunner EFI system,” said Astronautics Vice President of Sales and Business Development Greg Plantz.

The EFI provides operators readability in all lighting conditions, enablement of modern navigation and approach capability, reduced operating and maintenance costs, and minimal downtime for installation.  The unit is easily upgradeable with new software functionality tailorable to customer needs and mission requirements.
