Boeing Tactical Surveillance Aircraft Achieves FAA Supplemental Type Certification

BOEING ANNOUNCED on August 12 that it has gained Supplemental Type Certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for its Enhanced Medium Altitude Reconnaissance and Surveillance System Risk Reduction Prototype (ERRP) aircraft. The company said that it will now begin offering the ERRP, which is based on the King Air 350ER, to customers worldwide.

“ERRP’s FAA certification gives us another approved modification in Boeing’s growing family of ISR airplanes,” said John Rader, vice president of Electronic and Sensor Solutions. “ERRP is a high-end signals intelligence aircraft that delivers near-real-time SIGINT to the warfighter, a capability in high demand from militaries around the globe.”

In addition to ERRP, the Boeing family of modified Beechcraft King Air ISR aircraft also includes the Reconfigurable Airborne Multi-Intelligence and Surveillance (RAMIS) aircraft, which has also received both FAA flight and STC certification.  Alan Warnes
