Sandel Attitude Display Gets FAA OK
Sandel Avionics' SA4550 Primary Attitude Display recently received STC approval from the FAA for Part 23 and Part 25 aircraft. The company said the modular, LED-backlit unit (introductory retail price $20,500) is ideal for retrofit installation in corporate jets ranging from Cessna Citations to Gulfstreams, as well as turboprops or other aircraft with 4-ATI and 5-ATI panel displays. When paired with the already-certified Sandel SN4500 Primary Navigation Display, the company says the SA4550 provides operators with a complete, modern primary flight display solution. "This certification confirms that our … displays will let corporate aircraft operators affordably update their old, unreliable ADIs and HSIs," said Sandel CEO Gerry Block. "With our new SA4550 and SN4500 incorporating incredible color and brightness … and an innovative plug-compatible installation architecture, operators can get a superb technology upgrade without having to pay for a full-panel replacement," he noted. The SA4550 is now available for installation by authorized Sandel dealers and installation centers.
