Honeywell is working with Duncan Aviation to develop supplemental type certificates for Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) solutions for the Honeywell Primus 1000/2000 and SPZ-8000 flight decks on multiple Hawker 800 series aircraft and select Cessna Citation 560 aircraft with our Primus II radio system.
This STC will provide operators with equipment that supports the upcoming Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency 2020 DO-260B Automatic Dependent Surveillance mandates. It will also enable aircraft to be ready for future Honeywell software upgrades.
Duncan Aviation Regional Avionics Sales Manager Mark Francetic says, "These solutions will have reasonable price points that customers will be comfortable with. Additionally, our program purchasing and incentives will allow for ongoing support and upgrades to Honeywell systems."
“Honeywell and Duncan Aviation are working together to help aircraft operators meet the upcoming mandates being implemented globally so they can continue to operate their aircraft safely and efficiently,” says Mike Beazley, Vice President, Global Sales for Honeywell. “Our ADS-B solution provides an accurate and more complete assessment of an airplane’s location to air traffic control and other airplanes, enhancing situational awareness for the pilot and safety for the passengers.”
The program will also offer customers the opportunity to upgrade their RM 850 radio management units to the enhanced RM 855 units when installing the ADS-B package. The new RM 855 unit is a liquid crystal display unit that is optimized for ADS-B and offers increased reliability and upgrade capability.
