ADS-B First In The US For Challenger 800/850 SE

Posted by Mark Francetic on Tue, Jan 17, 2017 @ 09:00 AM

We recently performed an industry first in the United States by installing/upgrading ADS-B-compliant avionics on a Challenger 850 SE. ADS-B-LobbyPoster-sm.jpgWe have combined the use of the STC from Rockwell Collins for WAAS/LPV with the STC from Avmax for ADS-B, approved for use on Challenger 800/850 SE aircraft by the FAA, which satisfies the upcoming January 1, 2020 ADS-B mandate deadline.

By combining these installations/upgrades, we minimized the downtime and access charges for the aircraft’s owner.

The installation/upgrades were performed by avionics technicians from the Duncan Aviation Las Vegas Satellite Avionics Shop at the customer’s hangar, and the aircraft’s pilots were ecstatic when they flew LPV approaches with the new system.

In addition to saving downtime and access charges, any of our experienced avionics technicians from our more than 26 Satellite Avionics Shops around the country can perform these installations/upgrades at a customer's facility.
