Garmin GTN 750 for Piaggio P180 Avanti

Modernising aircraft avionics significantly improves safety. In this case, an STC for the installation of a dual Garmin GTN 750 interface, a dual Garmin GTX 33D transponder, and state-of-the-art Garmin GWX 70 weather radar, heightens situational awareness while optimising performance. The scope of this upgrade solution includes Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV) approaches, Precision-Area Navigation (P-RNAV), Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS), as well as Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) Out.

The RUAG P180 STC solution builds upon the aircraft's renowned reliability, further enhancing its qualities. As a Piaggio Authorised Service Centre, a Garmin dealer, and an EASA-approved Design Organisation (DOA), RUAG provides an unique advantage since our engineers direct their capabilities on designing a package tailored to the strengths of both original equipment manufacturer (OEM) systems.

And, while our customers expect time and cost-effective solutions, the RUAG team focuses on short downtimes, with aircraft availability as the ultimate goal. We streamline the process by preparing installation kits and wiring looms, in advance. Furthermore, the upgrade can be easily combined with heavy maintenance inspections, including C or D checks, or landing gear overhaul.

ADS-B Out update for Dassault Falcon 2000 / 2000EX

Expect upgrade solutions for fulfilling compliance mandates to be straightforward, affordable, and fast, so your aircraft is flying again as soon as possible. RUAG Aviation purpose-developed this STC for Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) Out for the upgrade of Dassault Falcon 2000 and Dassault Falcon 2000EX aircraft.

Resolving the requisite EASA and FAA directives for ADS-B Out compliance, the STC meets all mandated specifications, and is available for Dassault Falcon 2000 platforms working on Rockwell Collins’ GPS 4000S and ProLine 21, or ProLine 4. It is DO260B certified for meeting the 2020 compliance date. RUAG offers this solution at our Dassault aircraft service locations in Lugano and Geneva. 

Able to be implemented with minimum downtime, requiring no invasive modifications and remaining economically responsible, this STC ensures your aircraft is available when you need it. Introduce the upgrade during your next maintenance check to optimise downtimes even further.

Cobham Installation AVIATOR 200 for Pilatus PC-12

Business aircraft are centres for productivity, relying on state-of-the-art technology and installations for optimised communications. The Pilatus PC-12 now features complete office-in-the-sky functionality based on the installation of the Cobham AVIATOR 200 SATCOM. RUAG Aviation installed this solution at our location in Geneva and holds exclusive rights to Pro Star Aviation’s EASA STC for this aircraft.

Developed by British-based manufacturer Cobham, the AVIATOR 200 Satcom is an ultra-compact, lightweight broadband solution allowing reliable and affordable connectivity for business jets. Its built-in router and Wi-Fi capability enable aircraft operators to offer a complete package of internet interface communications, including in-flight e-mail, internet browsing, connectivity for smartphones, tablets and laptops, and one high-quality, low-cost AMBE2 voice channel. Multiple users can access the system at speeds of up to 200 kilobytes per second.

Technology, industry partnerships and established experience all combine to provide optimal, individualised solutions for our business aircraft customers.

Aerial Survey for PC-12


Aerial surveying requires an economical and reliable platform with long range and versatility. RUAG Aviation provides an innovative solution to fit the proven Pilatus PC-12 with imaging, LIDAR and photogrammetry Equipment.

The STC provides a dual hatch configuration. The hatches can be used for the installation of large scale survey cameras, multi-spectral scanner, hyper-spectral scanner and LIDAR scanner enabling photography and scanning at the same time.

Your needs

A reliable aerial survey platform with outstanding versatility, performance and operational flexibility.  

Your benefits

As an aerial surveying platform, the PC-12 combines high and low speed with long range, a large pressurised cabin, fuel efficiency and low maintenance requirements. Its short take-off and landing (STOL) capabilities on unprepared surfaces enables it to be based closer to designated surveying areas, thereby maximising productive uptime.
