Duncan Aviation’s ADS-B countdown is on. As of today, the FAA’s mandate to upgrade business aviation aircraft to Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) is 17 weeks away.
Duncan Aviation holds or has access to 42 Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for FAA-approved ADS-B equipment for more than 100 models. One of those models is the Gulfstream GIV, and more than half of all of those aircraft have yet to be upgraded for ADS-B. Duncan Aviation says it can offer several paths to certification for this aircraft, including an STC developed by CMD Flight Solutions. The company says avionics technicians at any of their Satellite Avionics Shops can upgrade the TDR-94D in as little as 10 days and ensure a path to certification before the mandate deadline. During the final 17 weeks, though, Duncan Aviation says it would also like to encourage those customers who have not yet performed the necessary upgrades to schedule time at one of the company’s 27 conveniently located Satellite Avionics Shops or Workaway locations while they still have hangar space available.
“If you haven’t yet upgraded but don’t want to be flying low or sitting on the ground on January 1, 2020, take a moment to schedule hangar space and upgrade to ADS-B. Duncan Aviation’s technicians around the country have performed hundreds of upgrades and are fully, Matt Nelson. “Give us a call and let us help you put together a plan for you to get your aircraft into compliance,” “If your aircraft is down for an inspection, contact us to have one of our eminently qualified techs come to your hangar to perform the upgrade.”
