Elliott Aviation, the industry’s leading Garmin retrofitter, is pursuing an ADS-B Out In STC for legacy Hawker 800A/800XP/1000 airframes. The solution will have seamless integration with the RMU/RCZ radio package including TCAS-II equipped aircraft. It will not only allow operators to meet ADS-B Out requirements, but it will provide ADS-B In information to be displayed on a Bluetooth connected mobile device with Garmin’s Flight Stream App. The STC is expected to cost aircraft operators considerably less than current available ADS-B options.
This installation includes dual remote mount Garmin GTX-3000 smart transponders. It also includes a Garmin GDL-88, GA-36 and Flightstream 110 to provide WAAS/GPS to the GTX-3000. Elliott has used this remote-mount equipment previously to provide ADS-B solutions for the Premier I/IA and the 2002 and newer Pro Line 21 equipped Hawkers.
“The ADS-B mandate is coming soon and we’ve been working hard to develop cost effective solutions for aircraft operators,” said Conrad Theisen, Director of Avionics Sales for Elliott Aviation. “We have been working on many STC’s to provide ADS-B solutions that not only meet FAA mandates, but give the operator valuable ADS-B information as well.”
