Trig Avionics has published a short CS-STAN Installation Guide – aimed at helping European pilots understand the benefits of using EASA’s approval route when fitting 8.33 radio equipment.
Trig’s Customer Support Engineer Lindsey Christie explained, “CS-STAN was introduced by EASA in 2015 and provides a cost effective and faster route to installing avionics in non-complex EASA aircraft. However, we have found that customer awareness of is low so we have published a guide to highlight the way CS-STAN works – using a Trig 8.33 installation as a practical example.”
CS-STAN is intended to provide a more affordable alternative to the established minor change process. It can be used to identify standard changes which can be made to the aircraft, without the need for further design certification; it can also support standard repairs.
Lindsey added, “As CS-STAN removes the need for any interaction with EASA to complete a change, this means no EASA admin fee is required. CS-STAN can be used to complete a wide variety of installations including; transponders, radios, antennas and other avionics.”
Trig’s TY96 stack radio and TY91 compact radios are popular with European pilots looking to meet the 8.33 mandate and CS-STAN makes the installation task more practical too. Contact you Approved Trig Dealer to find out more.
