Airborne 12.03.18: uAvionix skyBeacon, Nextant STC, Spitfire Watch

Also: 1500th ATR, FAA Appointments, Women In Aerospace Bill, PC-24 Air Ambulance

Despite being on the receiving of some bad behavior of the almighty Garmin juggernaut, uAvionix is sticking to its guns and proceeding with an aggressive rollout of some exciting avionics developments.

And mind you, its just in time for the renewed FAA rebate. In order to get the rebate, you must select the skyBeacon you’ll need to set the data link option on the rebate form to UAT, and choose uAvionix skyBeacon TSO as the ADS-B transmitter. uAvionix says its shipping the skyBeacon after receiving the STC and credits the FAA’s Chicago ACO, “for their patience and guidance through this process.” The initial STC covers 272 aircraft. The FAA has approved an STC for a Pro Line Fusion flight deck upgrade on the Nextant Aerospace Challenger 604XT. The timing of the STC is on track with Nextant Aerospace projection at EBACE a year ago when introducing the program. This certification achievement completes Phase I, Avionics Transformation, of the multiphase 604XT remanufacturing solution. The upgraded flight deck includes the touchscreen Pro Line Fusion, Synthetic Vision with Airport Dome, WAAS/LVP, and ADS-B Out with the option to include Safe Flight AutoPower, FANS-1A and Link 2000+. What a story! In the Spring of 1945, a Spitfire aircraft went down on the Russian tundra during a dogfight and it’s story lives on in the RJM mechanical timepiece. The RJM is the worlds' first timepiece that combines authentic salvaged Spitfire aircraft material with both the design of the aircraft itself and the watches worn by the pilots of the WW2 era. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
