Waterford, MI -- Pentastar Aviation, one of the nation's leading aviation services providers, has been awarded Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) ST02281CH from the Federal Aviation Administration. Pentastar Aviation is headquartered at Oakland County International Airport. Tom Seeber, President and Chief Executive Officer, Pentastar Aviation, made the announcement.
This STC allows for the installation of the CMC Electronics CMA-1100 Electronic Flight Bag in aircraft covered under the Approved Model List (AML), which includes the Falcon 2000 and Falcon 2000EX aircraft. Additionally, the project included the first Yoke mount approval granted for the Falcon 2000 aircraft. The AML is above all remarkable, allowing different Aircraft types to be installed with the CMA-1100 system and avoiding the complete STC process, which reduces downtime due to the plunging need for certification resources.
"We consider this a major achievement because it is the first AML ever awarded to Pentastar Aviation. This award is a testament of our Avionics Department’s mission to continuously provide high-tech designs and integrations. We’re poised for the future and dedicated to offering efficient, reliable and secure business aviation services. This award enables us to set the standard in aviation, which we consider to be a vital goal of Pentastar," says Seeber.
