There’s been a changing of the guard on the aviation side of Textron.

Textron has announced that Scott Ernest, president and CEO of Textron Aviation Inc. since 2011, has been named president and CEO of Textron’s Industrial Segment and of Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc. Ronald Draper, Textron Aviation’s senior vice president, integrated supply chain (Operations), has been named to succeed Ernest. Sandel Avionics has announced availability for its Avilon flight deck for the King Air family. Initial STC award is expected in January 2019 with first Avilon deliveries to follow immediately after receipt of STC. Sandel is now accepting orders for Avilon. Avilon offers operators a highly advanced flight deck that enables a vastly simplified installation along with complete system integration. Avilon will sell for a guaranteed fly-away price of $175,000, including an advanced autopilot. The FAA is relaunching its $500 ADS-B rebate program effective immediately and through Oct. 11, 2019. The agency is making $4,900,000 available under the rebate program, which will fund 9,792 ADS-B Out installations. As of Jan. 1, 2020, aircraft flying in airspace where a transponder is necessary today will be required to be equipped with compliant ADS-B Out technology. "The ADS-B mandate is not going away. We are about 15 months from the Jan. 1, 2020, deadline and now is the time for aircraft owners to equip," said FAA Acting Administrator Dan Elwell. The previous rebate program, which ran from Sept. 19, 2016, to Sept. 18, 2017, issued more than 10,000 rebate payments. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
