Over 800 Aircraft Are Candidates For The Nav System Update
The FAA has granted an STC to Butler National Corporation for installation of the new Garmin GTN Series of Navigators that provide GPS, Navigation and Communications. The initial installation is for dual GTN 750 Navigators in a Lear 24B.
"This marks a significant milestone for our Kings Avionics subsidiary," said Clark Stewart, President and CEO. "The STC for the new Garmin GTN series allows us to tap into a significant upgrade market. Our initial focus will be on upgrades to the Lear 20 series, Lear 30 series, and Lear 50 series airplanes. There are over 800 of these Learjets flying. The Garmin GTN upgrade provides significant functionality upgrades to the airplanes at a very cost-effective price."
The Garmin GTN Series features intuitive touchscreen controls and a large-screen display that give Learjet pilots unprecedented access to high-resolution mapping, graphical flight planning, and geo-referenced charting, among many other features. The installation also features new GPS roll-steering that allows seamless navigation operations with turn anticipation and waypoint sequencing interfaced to the autopilot.
The Kansas-based company operates in the Aerospace and Services business segments. The Aerospace segment focuses on the manufacturing of support systems for "classic" commercial and military aircraft including the Butler National TSD for the Boeing 737 and 747 Classic aircraft, switching equipment for Boeing McDonnell Douglas Aircraft, weapon control systems for Boeing Helicopter and performance enhancement structural modifications for Learjet, Cessna, Dassault and Beechcraft business aircraft.
