New Century, Kansas, July 8, 2024 – Butler National Corporation (OTCQX: BUKS), a
leader in the growing global market for specialized aircraft structural modification,
maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and a recognized provider of gaming
management services, announces that its subsidiary, Avcon Industries, Inc.,
obtained Federal Aviation Administration Supplemental Type Certificate (STC)
approval of the Avcon dual camera port installation and the Avcon “Special Mission
Pod” modification on the Textron/Cessna Model 208B airplanes.
Avcon obtained STC SA04639CH for the dual camera port installation and the Avcon
“Special Mission Pod” modification on the Cessna Model 208 and 208B
Caravan/Grand Caravan airplanes. The modifications are FAA-approved and may
be simultaneously installed to provide approximately 80 cubic feet of additional
space in the fuselage-mounted pod, which space may accommodate
sensor/cameras/radars with a full 360-degree swept volume. The Avcon dual
camera ports are compatible with the lower fuselage pod and allow the installation of
cabin-mounted Lidar/camera sensors.
The Avcon “Special Mission Pod” is uniquely designed by the Avcon aerospace
engineers to optimize sensor operational capabilities for the Model 208 and 208B
airplanes.” Commented Chris Reedy, President and CEO of Butler National
Corporation. “Similarly, the combination of a Special Mission Pod with the Avcon
Caravan camera ports expands the functionality of the aircraft to other applications.
Avcon engineers once again created a generic design with tremendous adaptability.
I strongly encourage Caravan operators to view the new product offerings on the
Avcon Industries website –” Added Chris Reedy.
The standard Avcon “Special Mission Pod” for the Model 208 and 208B has a
catalog price starting at $225,000. The Avcon dual camera port modification has a
starting price of $248,000.
“Avcon continues to look for opportunities to grow the utility of airplanes for special
missions, among other commercial operations. While Avcon offers many special
mission modifications for King Air airplanes, from extended nose, camera ports and
its oversized pod for the King Air B300 to provisions for external stores and
workstations, now Avcon has extended its available platforms to include the Model
208/208B Caravan family.” Commented Aric Peters, Director of Sales. Peters
added, “The Avcon modifications are designed for generic functionality, to include

installation, retraction and extension of lights, cameras, and is compatible with a wide
