ALOFT STC ADS-B Out for Next-Gen BBJ

Among several announcements from ALOFT AeroArchitects during this year’s NBAA in Orlando, Florida, was the signing of a contract to complete a scheduled 12-month inspection along with the installation of its new ALOFT STC for ADS-B Out on a Next-Generation 737 Boeing Business Jet (BBJ).


ALOFT’s senior vice president – sales and marketing, John Eichten, stated: “While the aircraft is in our facility, we will also install and complete the supplemental type certification (STC) process for our own ADS-B Out compliance solution.”


“The recent expansion of our FAA Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) capabilities increases our control of the STC process timeline to enable the complete and complex design, installation and STC certification process for ADS-B compliance to occur within the very tight schedule of a routine 12-month scheduled maintenance inspection,” he said.


Along with the STC for the ADS-B Out installation on the BBJ, Eichten also said that additional STCs are in the process of being developed through ALOFT AeroArchitects’ ODA and will be offered in the industry as they become available.
