Raytheon Aircraft Services (RAS) last week announced it has obtained an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) providing a Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) solution for the Beechjet 400 and the MU-300 aircraft. The Raytheon STC upgrades existing height-keeping equipment to digital altimeters with data-acquisition units to meet RVSM requirements. Aircraft flying above 29,000 feet must meet domestic RVSM requirements by Jan. 20, 2005. “Our Beechjet and Diamond Jet solution offers a cost-effective approach to the FAA mandate,” said Skip Madsen, vice president of Raytheon Aircraft Services. “We’re also working with an industry supplier to develop a solution for Bendix/King KFC400 EFIS 10-equipped aircraft.” Beechjet 400 and MU-300 owners can contact RAS's facility at the Atlanta Fulton County Airport for more information.
