Our Duncan Aviation Las Vegas Satellite Avionics Shop recently installed/upgraded ADS-B-compliant avionics on a Challenger 850 SE. We 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.
By combining these installations/upgrades, we minimized the downtime and access charges for the aircraft’s owner.
This is an industry-first installation in the United States and was performed in the customer’s hangar. The aircraft’s pilots were happy with the results when they flew LPV approaches with the new system.
If you are not yet ready for the required upgrades, but don’t want to get caught up in the mad rush to find available capacity at certified service centers, we are offering an ADS-B Slot Program.
The Duncan Aviation ADS-B Slot Program allows you to buy a slot to reserve a confirmed date and hangar space for your aircraft at one of our Satellite Avionics Shops. The deposit will be applied to the ADS-B installation when you arrive.
By scheduling now, you will see better pricing, have easier access to the certified transponders and GPS sensors, and find time for the upgrade/installation that fits your flight schedule and calendar.
