Duncan Aviation Avionics Experts to Present at AEA

LINCOLN, NEB — For the third year in a row, Duncan Aviation avionics experts are on the agenda to present technical training workshops at the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) 57th Annual International Convention and Trade Show, March 12-15, in Nashville, Tennessee.

During the workshop on Saturday, March 15, at 8 a.m., attendees will have the combined experience of Duncan Aviation’s Avionics Tech Reps Curt Campbell, Dan Magnus, Scott McKenzie and Larry Troyer as they bring their expertise to AEA to offer insight and guidance on the basics of autopilot and radar system operation and troubleshooting. The workshop is purposely designed not to be airframe or system specific, but will include fundamental concepts, common anomalies and tips technicians encounter with some of the more popular business aircraft systems. During the workshop, attendees can enter a drawing to win a new Apple iPad mini.

Basic Autopilot Functionality & Troubleshooting
An aircraft autopilot is a complex piece of avionics and because it interfaces with other systems can be just as confusing. Larry Troyer and Curt Campbell will lead you through the intricacies of how the autopilot system works. 
During their session, you will learn:

  1. The key parts of an autopilot system and how they work together.
  2. Whether old or new, autopilots exhibit the same functionality.
  3. Interfacing older autopilots with newer avionics systems.

Basic Radar Functionality & Troubleshooting
Radar season hits North America around the beginning of April, a time of year when storms make a properly functioning radar even more critical. During the workshop, Dan Magnus and Scott McKenzie will present the most common technical issues with radar systems and provide a roadmap to identify common squawks and fault codes.
During their session, you will learn:

  1. Understanding the parts of a radar system: antenna, receiver transmitter and indicator.
  2. Common radar squawks and fault codes.
  3. Tips and tricks for continued efficient radar operation.

Experience. In Action.
Stop by booth #604 for Duncan Intelligence Live featuring Curt, Dan, Scott and Larry fielding live technical troubleshooting questions onsite during open Exhibit Hall hours. They will be answering emails and phone calls from operators in the field and will be available for one-on-one consultation during AEA. Make a point of stopping by Duncan Aviation’s booth to talk with them and other Duncan Aviation representatives.
