UK aircraft manufacturer, Britten-Norman, is working with avionics technology company Garmin to develop the TXi Engine Indication System (EIS) for its Islander turboprops.

The development and distribution agreement signed between the parties is for creating a CAA-approved supplemental type certificate applicable to both new and retrofit turboprop aircraft that will complement the existing STC for the piston variants.

The TXi EIS includes many innovative safety features such as engine timers, exceedance recordings, dynamic engine indications and wireless data logging to reduce pilot workload, improve engine efficiency and reduce maintenance costs.

The first installation will be this August, with a worldwide rollout following within six months.
