Mineral Wells, Texas – May 17, 2010 – Cool City Electronics, Inc. (CCE) announces that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has informed the company of the approval of their Quality Control Manual and inspection system. This approval by the FAA paves the way for issuance of the Technical Standard Order Authorization (TSOA) by the FAA for the Stability Augmentation System (SAS) components designed and built by CCE for marketing by Cool City Avionics. CCE expects FAA issuance of the TSOA within a few days.
The SAS-100 system will be the first CCE product to receive FAA certification. It offers roll and pitch stabilization that improves the handling qualities of a helicopter, while being transparent to the pilot.
The SAS-100 consists of a flight control computer with solid state gyros and roll and pitch actuators installed in the flight control system in series with the pilot.
“The FAA approval of our Quality Control Manual and inspection system is good news for Cool City, said Jim Irwin, president and CEO. We look forward to receiving the TSOA for the SAS shortly.”
