Becker Avionics Awarded STC For Piaggio Aerospace P.180 Series Aircraft

Miramar (FL), USA, 2nd of October 2020

Digital audio innovator, Becker Avionics, is proud to announce that we have been awarded a Part 23 Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the installation of the AMU6500 Audio Panel. The STC covers the Piaggio Aerospace P.180 Series aircraft (Avanti II and Avanti EVO).
This STC was designed with simplicity and ease of installation in mind. The whole modification can be performed quickly and during a planned maintenance event. The obsolete Baker Electronics M1035/M1045 audio panels are removed from the instrument panel. A new audio panel mounting bracket and a small harness adapter, the new AMU is installed. When purchasing the STC as a kit, it is delivered with all required components to include:

  • 2 x AMU6500 Digital Audio Panels
  • 2 x Adapter Harnesses
  • 2 x Audio Panel Mounting Bracket
  • 1 x Technical Data Package
  • 1 x Right to Use Letter/Letter of Authorization

This STC was made possible with the collaboration of Intercontinental Jet Services Corp. (IJSC) based in Tulsa, OK. IJSC is an authorized Piaggio Service Center and the only authorized sales channel for this STC. Please contact IJSC for your kit sale or in-house modification today.

This STC will allow owners and operators of the Avanti to reduce costly repairs to their aging audio systems while incorporating the newest technology.

Joe Hensley, Avionics Manager of Intercontinental Jet Services Corp.

“The Becker AMU6500 is designed as a modern direct replacement to a variety of audio panels that are experiencing obsolescence and just aren’t economically repairable. We are very excited by the capabilities of this audio panel and the eager acceptance we are seeing from the market place.”

David Oglesbee, Director of Sales and Marketing of Becker Avionics Inc.

The AMU 6500 was designed with a variety of customers in mind. The ease of use, customized functionality, durability and capability make it the obvious choice for sophisticated operators whether they be in the high tempo mission aircraft requiring a mission audio panel such as Leon County Sheriff’s Office or the business aircraft requiring a fantastic looking digital audio panel exceeding the demands of both the crew and the passengers. The AMU 6500 is a perfect replacement for the customer who currently operates an obsolete Baker audio panel.
The AMU 6500 is a robust, cost-effective audio panel that combines unique customer benefits, such as 3D audio, blue tooth, up to 12 transceiver positions, panel mounted with no remote boxes, lightweight and completely programmable by the customer.
