Flightstar Corporation Receives Certification for ADS-B Out

Flightstar Corporation has obtained approval from the National Civil Aviation Administration (ANAC) of Argentina for their ADS-B Out STC and Single WAAS FMS with LPV Monitor STC. These two STCs are for use in the Bombardier Learjet 40 series of aircraft and had both received initial FAA approval in early 2016.
The Flightstar ADS-B STC (FAA STC #ST04064CH / ANAC of Argentina CST#1906.14[A]) allows for operators to choose between two different options for GPS pairing. Option one utilizes a Honeywell KGS-200 standalone GPS unit without the need to upgrade the existing FMS systems. The second option utilizes two Universal Avionics UNS-1Ew FMS units as the GPS position source.
The Flightstar Single WAAS FMS STC (FAA STC #ST04061CH / ANAC of Argentina CST#1906.15[A] ) utilizes a single Universal Avionics UNS-1Ew and LPV monitor to give the aircraft full LPV capability. Operators could then implement option two of the Flightstar ADS-B STC to achieve ADS-B compliance without the need to add a second FMS unit to the aircraft. 
Approval certification documents in addition to an STC approval reference sheet can be located on the company’s website:
