Kitchener completes upgrade package for Cessna 208

Ontario, Canada — Kitchener Aero Avionics (KAAV) as completed a new avionics upgrade package for the Cessna C208 Caravan.

The heart of the upgrade is an Aspen EFD-1000C3 PFD and Class B TAWS.

“For hardworking Caravans – especially those in commercial operations – this mod can really make a difference” says KAAV President Barry Aylward.

The Aspen PFD replaces the problematic and expensive gyros in the King KFC- 150/225 Flight Control Systems that were originally installed in the C-208 fleet, company officials said. The TAWS upgrade to the GNS-530W is fully compliant with the “Enhanced Altitude Accuracy” provisions of Transport Canada’s TAWS mandate. Class B TAWS is an option on the GNS-530/530W, as well as the new Garmin GTN-650 & 750 Touchscreen WAAS Navigators.

This C208 upgrade package includes the Aspen PFD and required adaptors which enable removal of the KCS-55A HIS, the KI-256 Flight Director Gyro, the VSI and Turn Coordinator. Standby Attitude, Airspeed, and Attitude Indicators are required. The Aspen system is fully integrated to the KFC-150 or KFC-225 Autopilot/FD System. Synthetic Vision is optional.
