DAC International, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that the Agencia Nacional de Aviacao Civil (ANAC) in Brazil has approved its supplemental type certificate (STC) for the Trig Avionics TT22 transponder with the FreeFlight Systems 1201 WAAS/GPS sensor for ADS-B Out compliance for use with the Sikorsky S-76 A/B/C models.
The TSO-certified 1201 GPS/WAAS Sensor provides position, velocity, and time (PVT) data to integrated navigation systems. Small, lightweight, attractively priced and easily installed, the 1201 supports oceanic and domestic, enroute, terminal, non-precision approach and departure operations and meets ADS-B accuracy requirements worldwide.
Trig’s TT22 transponder replaces the non ADS-B transponder and is the smallest and lightest (0.8 lbs) transponder, allowing the unit to fit into the tightest of panel spaces. It is an approved Class 1 transponder which meets the ADS-B functions of DO-260B Class B1S as well as FAA TSO C112c and C166b. The Trig TT22 also meets all equal ETSO requirements in Europe.
The STC was previously approved by the United States Federal Aviation Administration in March of this year.
