New anti-skid braking system launched for Pilatus PC-12

Posted 31 August 2016 · Add Comment

Advent Aircraft Systems has launched certification on the Pilatus PC-12 of its proven, advanced technology, light weight anti-skid braking system (Advent eABS).

Once certification is complete, the PC-12 would be added as an additional model to Advent’s existing STC for the system on the Eclipse EA500/550 and the King Air B300/300C series aircraft.

Advent eABS benefits for the PC-12 operator include: improved braking in all runway conditions without the risk of flat spotted or blown tires, reducing risk to the aircraft and flight schedules; an alternative to the use of reverse thrust to reduce prop erosion and the risk of FOD ingestion; and the ability to confidently apply the brakes immediately after touchdown or in situations where hard braking is desired, such as a rejected takeoff.

Tom Grunbeck, Advent VP of marketing and sales, 203 233-4262, said: “This is the first anti-skid braking system ever offered for the PC-12 and we believe the demand for it will be significant. The incentive program is meant to reward early buyers for their confidence in our product and for helping Advent build backlog during certification. We have eABS kits ready to go and look forward to supporting our dealers and their customers with inquiries and orders.”
