Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast for Learjets
Avcon offers two separate STCs, ST02230SE and ST02455SE, for ADS-B (Out) compliance.
The table below shows STC applicability. ST02455SE applies to aircraft equipped with TCAS II (change 7.0 or later). ST02230SE applies to aircraft not having TCAS II installed.
ST02230SE incorporates the Garmin GTN Navigator 625/725/650/750 as the GPS position source and the GTX 335R or GTX 345R transponder. The GTX 345R provides optional ADS-B (In) information.
ST02455SE seamlessly integrates the GDL 88 WAAS / GPS Position Source and the GTX 3000 transponder with your existing TCAS-II System and transponder controller for ADS-B (Out) compliance. The GDL 88 offers optional ADS-B (In) information to the flight deck using the Flight Stream 210 and a portable electronic device such as the iPad.
Downtime for installation is typically 7-10 days, but will vary based on existing aircraft equipment and aircraft condition. Please inquire for pricing details and a downtime estimate.
