Pentastar Aviation® Adds Cessna Citation Models to STC on Articulating Yoke Mount for iPad®

Waterford, Mich. – Pentastar Aviation announces expansion of their Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) ST03138CH on the articulating yoke mount for Apple® iPad® to include Cessna Citation models. The update of the FAA Approved Model List (AML) allows Pentastar Aviation to install the specially engineered iPad® mounts on Citation 500, 550, S550, 560, and 560XL model aircraft.

The FAA certification of the Citation model allows pilots to safely use the rapidly expanding technology and associated flight applications available on the iPad® in-cockpit. This update to the AML enhances the original STC for a Class 2 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) mount that included the development of the first-in-class cockpit iPad® fixture for Gulfstream Aerospace G-1159, G-1159A, G1159B, G-IV, GV, GV-SP and GIV-X model aircraft.

“With technology ever evolving, we know accessibility to it is key for pilots. When our engineering team designs a product like our iPad® mount, we want to make it accessible to as many users as possible,” said Greg Schmidt, Pentastar Aviation President and CEO. “Adding Cessna models to the FAA Approved Model List allows us to do just that.”
