TORONTO, Oct. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (CSE:SNA) (SNA.CN) (SNAVF) ("Star” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the granting of a new Supplemental Type Certification (“STC”) to Star by Transport Canada. The STC relates to the use of the STAR-A.D.S. ® Gen 3 system on an Airbus A320 aircraft type.
This STC will allow Star to install its STAR-A.D.S. ® Gen 3 System on-board the next available AlMasria Universal Airlines ("AlMasria") aircraft. (See press Release September 10, 2019).
Viraf Kapadia, CEO of Star Navigation Systems said:
“This additional STC adds to our growing list of certifications for commercial and business aircraft. We already had an STC for the previous STAR-A.D.S. ® Gen 2 model. Now the Gen 3 is also A 320 certified and we can offer even more flexibility to an operator, adding GSM communications and manual retrieval through USB port. We shall rapidly install our system on-board the first available AlMasria aircraft, while we complete the STC applications for the other aircraft types of their fleet. This A320 STC confirms our focus on the major targeted aircraft platforms such as the B 737, for which STCs had already been granted.”
