Jupiter Avionics Corporation announced on Dec. 7 that its JA94 Dual Audio Controller has obtained Technical Standard Order (TSO) designation from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
“We already have customers in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe that are operating the JA94 on their aircraft,” said Jupiter president Mitch Stinson.
“Our customers already enjoy full pin-for-pin compatibility, night vision goggle compatibility, complimentary interchangeable legends, programmable configuration, and duplex mode transmission among many other features on the JA94. The device also supports eight users: pilot, co-pilot, and up to six passengers. The TSO will allow installing agencies an easier path to certifying their JA94 installations,” Stinson added.
The JA94 is distributed by Dallas Avionics.
“Jupiter Avionics’ efforts to obtain the TSO is another reason why we support and sell their products,” said Dallas Avionics vice president of sales Scott Davis. “The TSO lets everyone know that the JA94 meets the FAA quality standards, but I know that Jupiter’s design and production standards are much higher than the TSO requirements. Our customers demand programmability, customization and quality products to meet their specific needs, and the JA94 accomplishes all of that.”
