HomeNew eABS Certifications

Advent Aircraft Systems can provide full support for certification of eABS on new or in-service aircraft.

Support ranges from complete turn-key system integration with STC approval to provision of eABS components and engineering support to customer engineering and certification teams.

For new aircraft in development that do not require power brakes, Advent's eABS offers complete anti-skid braking control without the need to incorporate expensive and heavy power-boosted brakes to obtain ABS capability and will work with any wheel and brake combination.

For retrofit to aircraft already equipped with manual brake systems, installing Advent's eABS does not require modification to the existing landing gear, wheels and brakes or master cylinders. Once an STC is issued, retrofit installation can normally be accomplished during scheduled maintenance inspections or when installing other upgrades, such as ADS-B.

Advent's eABS or derivative components are currently planned or being considered for civilian and military aircraft in both new production and aftermarket applications. Contact us for more information on these certifications or for an in-depth discussion on how we can assist you with your aircraft project.




The Advent Advantage

System Performance - Better directional control and reduced stopping distance on runways contaminated with debris, water, ice and snow.

Tire Protection - Eliminates flat-spotted and blown tires during aggressive stopping on dry or contaminated runways.

Tactile Feedback - During eABS operation, the brake pedal pushes back, annunciating its operation, aiding the pilot in knowing the braking limits of the airplane.

Alternative to reverse thrust – Use of eABS eliminates risk of engine FOD and prop erosion in contaminated runway conditions.

Touchdown Protection – Wheel speed must spin up to at least 85% of aircraft speed before brakes will operate.

Low-Speed Cut-out – The system will not operate, in anti-skid mode, when aircraft speed is below 15 knots.

Customer Service and Warranty – Advent technical support is available on call or in the field. All eABS components and installation hardware are covered by a two-year warranty.

This system has exceeded our performance expectations, while experiencing no flatspotting, skidding or tire failure during aggressive ABS ground and flight testing.

Quotemarks
The eABS system has all the technology the large jets have plus tactile feedback. This provides our pilots with operating commonality within the fleet and has the added benefit of the latest in brake system safety technology for the King Air.

Any PC-12 with the eABS system installed will enjoy significant advantages over non-equipped aircraft, and will allow pilots to confidently achieve the maximum performance of the PC-12. I would highly recommend the eABS system to any owner.

Quotemarks
eABS in our plane has been flawless and a great peace-of-mind component. We know it's there when we might need it. Landed one time at dusk with a runway we didn't know was half iced up. eABS did a great job.

My home airport is often snow covered. What a difference my eABS brakes make when landing on snow! I just push hard on the brakes, and the pedals do a little dance almost all the way. Well worth the price!

Quotemarks
Advent's ABS system is highly effective. Braking in adverse conditions is smooth and provides excellent pilot feedback.
