Installation design and modernization of aircrafts' avionics
As a result of dynamic development of technology and wide rage of products offered by avionics manufacturers there is great demand for aircraft modernization including new avionics equipment in order to improve pilotage comfort and flight safety.
In order to satisfy the needs of aircraft users, Drabpol created first design office in Poland where designing of avionics equipment changes on aircrafts is performed.
We have Approved Maintenance Organization in accordance with PART 21 focused on avionics electronic systems for aircrafts certified in CS 23 categories (normal, utility and acrobatic category aircrafts with MTOW up to 5670 kg and twin-engine, commuter category 3 175 kg).
We prepare aircraft avionics modifications projects which meet requirements specified by EASA.
We develop STC documentation or Minor Change required during installation of new equipment on aircraft depending on change complexity in respect of technical and essential aspects.
STC/Minor Change development includes:
- technical documentation (electrical diagrams, drawing documentation, energy balance, balance analysis),
- operation manual (flight manual supplement),
- trial programs including ground testing and flight testing.
With support of our own PART 145 team during our work focused on avionics modernization we have the possibility to perform simultaneous installation of new equipment on the aircraft as well as ground testing and flight testing.
First in Europe
The most popular helicopter in Poland and top selling in Europe + equipment which does not constitute its standard equipment but is considered a part of standard equipment in majority of new light aircrafts... We took up the challenge! As the only company in Europe we developed modernization, performed the installation, testing and certification of Avidyne’s TAS 615 collision avoidance system and TWX 670 lighting detection system on Robinson R44 II Raven helicopter.

Our engineers work on modern CAD systems (computer aided design) creating 3D models of components in the field of modification. Thanks to CNC machine tool owned by PART 145, previously designed installation elements and panel are manufactured internally.
We also work on projects to be implemented by other operating organizations in Poland and Europe and complete projects – starting from idea, documentation to training stands for flight schools.
