Butler National Corporation Seeks Supplemental Type Certificate for New Garmin Navigation and Communications System
OLATHE, Kan., Oct. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Butler National Corporation (OTC QB: BUKS), a leader in the growing global market for structural modification, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) announced it is working to obtain a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for installation of the new Garmin GTN Series of GPS, Navigation and Communications Systems. The initial installation will be dual GTN 750 in a Lear 24B.
"This is an outstanding growth opportunity for our Kings Avionics subsidiary," said Clark Stewart, President and CEO. "The STC for Garmin's new GTN series allows us to tap into a sizable international upgrade market.

This may provide a significant avionics upgrade alternative to a number of other Part 25 airplanes."
The Garmin GTN Series features intuitive touchscreen controls and a large-screen display. These units have the potential to give pilots unprecedented access to high-resolution terrain mapping, graphical flight planning, geo-referenced charting, traffic display, and satellite weather.
