LINCOLN, NEB. — Rockwell Collins and Duncan Aviation’s Provo, Utah, facility recently worked together to install and certify the first Pro Line 21 Airspace Modernization package featuring an integrated ADS-B solution for the King Air B300 aircraft.
This bundled solution brings PL21-equipped aircraft above production baseline configuration and maintains the aircraft’s viability in NextGen airspace. A Synthetic Vision System (SVS), integrated ADS-B Out Version DO-260B and an FMS update that enables LPV in Europe were installed and certified in the B300 with certification for the C90 and B200 following closely behind.
“We are thrilled that we could provide Rockwell Collins with the installation expertise for this project,” says Mark Francetic, Duncan Aviation Regional Avionics Sales Manager and NextGen expert. “This dovetails nicely with Duncan Aviation’s developing NextGen expertise and programs. In addition to the King Air, there will be additonal Pro Line 21 Airspace Modernization packages that will be tested and conformed under a Rockwell Collins STC.”
