Technical Infrastructure

 

Hawker Beech Super King Air 350 aircraft equipped with AD-AFIS-260 flight calibration system is the basic technical support facility for the check of flight procedures and the flight calibration of ground based radio navigation aids from the air. The flight calibration system was manufactured and installed in the aircraft by Aerodata AG, in accordance with the accepted international standards and requirements.

 

The Aircraft

Hawker Beech Super King Air 350 aircraft is a combination of high-performance aircraft and a modern design. The power plant consists of two highly reliable turboprop Pratt & Whitney PT6A-60A engines.

The aircraft is equipped with Pro Line 21 system architecture, which belongs to a group of the most sophisticated aviation-system-related solutions.

Flight Calibration System

AD-AFIS-260 is highly accurate and reliable modern flight calibration system.

AD-AFIS-260 system architecture comprises: FIS receivers and sensors, AFIS computer system, position determining reference system, FIS peripheral equipment, test equipment and equipment for the calibration of the FIS receivers.

FIS receivers used in the flight calibration system are high-quality receivers which have been certified as equipment to be primarily used inside an aircraft. Position determining reference system is a hybrid system which performs multiple sensor data integration by applying the optimal algorithm.

In the conditions of favorable satellite constellation the application of the P-DGPS (phase-DGPS) solution, enables the flight calibration system to calculate the reference position with the dynamic accuracy of less than 10cm, which is enough for the calibration of an ILS CATIII.
