Western Aircraft, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that it has been named an Advent Aircraft Systems dealer for its Advent eABSTM anti-skid braking system fort the Pilatus PC-12 and Beechcraft King Air B300 and B200 aircraft.
The eABS is an affordable, lightweight and easily installed system that requires no change to your existing brake system. It provides improved braking performance in all conditions, reduces the risk of flat-spotted or blown tires, lessens the risk of prop erosion and FOD ingestion and allows for hard braking at touchdown speeds.
“We are thrilled to be working with Advent Aircraft Systems,” said Vice President and General Manager of Western Aircraft Austin Shontz. “The company’s innovative offerings expand the opportunities available to our Pilatus and King Air customers.”
This is the first eABS for the PC-12 and King Air aircraft and the system is proving to be of particular interest to flight departments that transition pilots from ABS equipped aircraft.
“We are proud to have Western Aircraft, the largest Pilatus PC-12 dealer in the world selling, and installing the eABS,” said Tom Grunbeck Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Advent Aircraft Systems. “Western has terrific knowledge of the benefits and technology the eABS will offer its customers.”
The eABS was first certified on the Eclipse EA500/550 in December 2013 with over 110 Systems in operation to date. In addition to the certification for the Pilatus PC-12 and Beechcraft King Air B300/B300C/B200, Advent’s eABS is currently planned or being developed for other aircraft types, such as the Beechcraft T-6B/C and USAF T-38C, for both retrofit and OEM application.
