Now Introducing the Legacy XL Panel System
For Immediate Release
Six Pack Aero’s Legacy XL Panel System Receives Supplemental Type Certificate
The first and only STC approval issued for a replacement stationary panel that allows for the installation of 10-inch Primary Flight Displays in certain Cessna 172 models.
BELLINGHAM, WA, Nov 15, 2022 – Jansma Design LLC dba Six Pack Aero has received Supplemental Type Certificate number SA02751SE for the Legacy XL Panel System, a new replacement stationary panel for Cessna 172 models E through M, to allow for the installation of 10-inch Primary Flight Display avionics without compromising the structure of the airframe.
Many Primary Flight Displays, commonly referred to as “glass cockpits”, have been approved for all Cessna 172 models in 2 common sizes, 7-inch and 10-inch. In Cessna 172 models produced prior to late-1975, the 10-inch displays will not fit above the pilot side control yoke without modifying the structural stationary panel, which is considered a major modification. With the increase in affordable glass cockpit retrofit solutions for older aircraft, the Legacy XL Stationary Panel offers a solution to safely upgrade older aircraft not only for the avionics solutions of today but also for many years to come.
The Legacy XL Panel System will be available starting January 2023 for purchase on Aircraft Spruce, at the introductory price of $6,950.00. For this price, buyers will receive:
- STC’d Stationary Panel Assembly
- 5 Instrument Panel Modules (Configured per buyer’s specifications)
- Upper skin extension
- Molded Kydex Glareshield
- SIRS Pedestal Compass
