SEA recently completed a major cockpit avionics modernization program on a SA 227 Metroliner.
Removed equipment included an early generation EFIS, many electromechanical and pneumatic instruments, and older communication and navigation equipment. Through the use of five STCs and FAA DER approved data, SEA installed a complete new Garmin avionics package in an SEA manufactured custom instrument panel.
- Dual Garmin G700 TXi EFIS Systems with GDU 1060s
- Garmin TAWS-B
- Garmin GTN 750 Xi and GTN 650 Xi GPS/NAV/COMs
- Garmin GTS 855 TCAS I Active and ADS-B In Traffic System
- Garmin GWX 75 Weather Radar
This new avionics suite has full integration with the existing autopilot, radar altimeter, FDR, and other retained avionics and aircraft systems.
For audio distribution, SEA utilized the new PS Engineering PAC 45A audio system bringing 12 place passenger intercom with cabin call functionality, CVR integration, 3D audio, and more.
SEA also installed the Mid-Continent Instruments MD 302 SAM, Electronic Standby Instrument to provide a reliable redundant flight instrumentation source if a major electrical failure happens during flight.
While at SEA, interior upgrades were included in the aircraft modernization. Wisetouch Interiors refurbished the interior lower sidewalls, dividers, and reupholstered several cushions, providing an updated look and luxurious finish.
This upgrade brings major improvements to situational awareness and avionics relevance, allowing the aircraft to fly for many more years to come.
