The January, 2001, Flying has an ad on page 7 from Continental regarding FADEC. News to me is that they have a web site:
It appears that they are ready to ship STC kits in the very near future. They are even taking orders on the web site. Looks like the Malibu, 210, and some Lancair models will go out the door shortly. Current rack rate for the big bore Continentals is about $8K plus installation plus an ‘installation’ kit which are yet to be determined.
Like many of you, I would prefer to have this as a factory option on my SR22/20. I’m still hoping that my Feb '02 delivery will have this option. I’m more than happy to wait for the aircaft and would prefer that others, via the STC kits, learn the early delivery bugs.
