Aeronautix is awarded an FAA STC for its aural warning and annunciation system (AWAS) which the company is manufacturing and installing on the Beechcraft King Air 300 and 350 series aircraft. The system, designed to integrate with the Collins Pro Line 21™ avionics suite, improves situational awareness by giving aural voice warnings to pilots, avoiding potential engine damage due to over-temp or over-torque conditions.
The FAA grants Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) to Aeronautix. As a result, Aeronautix has authority previously reserved only for the FAA, most notably, the authority to issue STCs. This achievement was based on the company's experience in providing engineering services and procedures needed to certify STCs and PMA status for production lines. Since 2006, Aeronautix has certified over 300 STCs.
