Aerocorp & Rocky Mountain Aircraft Complete G950 Upgrade for B.A.S.





The first British Antarctic Survey (BAS) DHC-6-300 to receive the upgraded Garmin G950 glass cockpit has been completed in Canada. The work was accomplished under the Aerocorp STC by Rocky Mountain Aircraft in Calgary, AB.

Before application of the STC on the remaining three BAS Twin Otters, the organization will verify the installation and functionality of the system on the single aircraft in the South Pole environment. 

BAS is confident in the success of the trial, and upon completion will seek additional funding from the U.K. government to complete the remaining three aircraft.
