The FAA as approved the retrofitting of Rockwell Collins’ AHS-3000 attitude heading reference system on the Embraer 120 and Saab 340

The FAA as approved the retrofitting of Rockwell Collins’ AHS-3000 attitude heading reference system on the Embraer 120 and Saab 340.

The new avionics unit, which measures aircraft pitch, roll and heading, replaces the AHS-85.

The AHS-3000 is lighter and four times more reliable than the AHS-85, according to Rockwell Collins.

The OEM also claims that upgrading the navigation equipment requires “minimal downtime” between maintenance cycles.
