Avcon Industries has received an FAA supplemental type certificate (STC) for the installation of the company’s dual 400-amp starter generators on Beechcraft King Air 300s equipped with Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-60 engines. This latest STC means that the Newton, Kansas-based company can install its starter generator on the entire fleet of King Air 300s.

The installation of the starter generators on each of the King Air 300’s two turboprop engines provides a total generator capacity of 800 amps. A user-customizable power distribution system with 400 amps of power from two dedicated electrical buses is also part of the installation, serving to optimize the airplane for special-mission operations.

“With the FAA STC approval of the starter generator on the PT6A-60 engines, we have the only STC-approved aftermarket solution to provide 800 amps of generator capacity to the B300 model King Air airplanes,” said Avcon president Marcus Abendroth. “The Avcon Special Mission Starter-Generator STC is key to many of our international customers upgrading their special-mission King Air 350 and 360 airplanes with the most technologically advanced intelligence, reconnaissance, and surveillance systems.”
