Southeast Aerospace Secures Amendment To FAA STC For Hawker 800 Series Aircraft With Insight Integrated Flight Deck

Southeast Aerospace announced it has received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval for the amendment to FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) number ST04570CH. This amendment now provides Honeywell SPZ 8000 Equipped Hawker 800 series aircraft the opportunity for cockpit modernization.

The STC provides a modernization option for Hawker 800A, 800B, and 800XP aircraft with existing Collins APS-80 or Honeywell SPZ 8000 autopilots by upgrading to the Universal InSight Integrated Flight Deck. The InSight Flight Deck revolutionizes avionics with its comprehensive system, incorporating an advanced synthetic vision system, detailed electronic charts, and integrated radio control capabilities. This streamlined approach reduces the number of external Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) traditionally required, cutting down on avionics weight and complex wiring.

The key components for STC number ST04570CH are as follows:

Universal Avionics InSight 3-Display EFIS with Touchscreen Control

WAAS LPV wtih Universal Avionics Dual UNS 1FW FMS

Integrated, Georeferenced Radio Tuning

Reduction of Over 30 Existing Panel Annunciators

Optional Universal Avionics Kapture CVR w/ RIPS & Datalink Recording, also available as a standalone option

Optional ADS-B Out – Dual Garmin GTX 3000 Transponders

Optional Honeywell MK-VII EGPWS Software Update

GPS / WAAS Antennas, Iridium Antenna, & VDL Antenna Installations

“We are thrilled to have received FAA approval for this important amendment to the STC. This upgrade represents a significant advancement in the avionics capabilities of the Hawker 800 series aircraft. Our goal is to offer a modern, efficient, and highly reliable upgrade path for these aircraft. The Insight Integrated Flight Deck upgrade, in conjunction with other modernizations like the Kapture CVR with RIPS and the PS Engineering PAC 45L audio system, empowers operators with the latest in avionics technology, significantly enhancing safety and operational efficiency,” said Luke Gomoll, SEA aircraft modifications sales representative.
