    EASA Certification for Roadrunner EFI in AW109/119


    Astronautics, July 22, 2019 - MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN – Astronautics Corporation of America’s AFI4700 RoadRunner Electronic Flight Instrument (EFI) has received a supplemental type certificate (STC) from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for A109/119 helicopters.

    “EASA approval allows A109/119 operators around the world to realize the cost, reliability, and safety benefits of Astronautics’ RoadRunner when upgrading to modern EFI systems (EFIS) on their helicopter fleets,” said President of Astronautics Chad Cundiff.

    Astronautics’ newest EFI is an easy-to-install and cost-effective replacement providing operators the fastest way to upgrade from existing attitude director and horizontal situational indicator functionality—whether a first-generation EFIS or electromechanical gauges—to a modern EFIS, enabling enhanced capability and safety features.

    Easily upgradeable with new software functionality tailorable to customer needs and mission requirements, the unit 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 RoadRunner EFI received a Federal Aviation Administration STC for A109/119 helicopters on June 12. An STC from the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil) for these platforms is expected shortly.

    The Astronautics’ authorized dealer network sells and services the RoadRunner EFI.
