Avionic Upgrades? We can do it?

  • TCAS II 7.1

  • ADS-B Out


The intuitive menu structures within G5000 feature a straightforward user interface, contributing to ease of operation. G5000 also offers optimal situational awareness, which features landscape oriented flight displays with multi-pane capability, allowing pilots to simultaneously view maps, charts, checklists, TAWS, TCAS, flight plan information, weather and more. Geographical map overlay within the HSI is also available on the PFD. Charts can be viewed across all three displays and are geo-referenced, including Garmin FliteCharts terminal approach procedures or optional Garmin ChartView powered by Jeppesen, as well as Garmin SafeTaxi airport diagrams. The G5000 flight deck for the Citation Excel/XLS is estimated to provide a weight savings of 200 pounds or more compared to the current system, allowing additional baggage, passenger and/or fuel load flexibility.


Problem: Aircraft with older equipment will require “must have” upgrades to prepare for FANS compliance. Operators have a unique opportunity to “phase” the compliance for FANS by planning for and scheduling these required upgrades now. A phased compliance can help divide the cost of a FANS upgrade over the budget cycles and reduce the spending impact.

Eventually, pilots and ATC will be able to exchange reports, instructions, and flight requests in a digital, text-based format instead of relying on voice communications.

Voice communications can create significant problems due to indecipherable accents, language barriers, and poor-quality RF connections. Text-messages are clear, concise, and eliminate the need for repetition and clarification. An added benefit is that the entire flight crew can review text messages and instructions from ATC. Benefits extend beyond the cockpit also, saving time, fuel and increasing safety by giving ATC a more accurate view of where aircraft are in relation to each another.

FANS 1/A is a later standard that was developed to the AFN (ATC Facilities Notification) protocol, and it has two components: CPDLC and ADS-C. Commercial airlines have used FANS 1/A for more than four decades for oceanic surveillance and text-based communications between pilots and ATC.

• CPDLC (Controller Pilot Data Link Communication) is the text-messaging component of FANS 1/A, and it allows two-way, digital communication between ATC and pilots when the aircraft is out of range of the analog-based VHF (very high frequency) or HF (high frequency) voice radio communications.

• ADS-C (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Contract) sends information (aircraft position, altitude, speed, and meteorological data) automatically to ATC from the aircraft when ATC has requested it. Pilots do not interact with ADS-C at all, nor can they disable the reporting function. If the flight crew sends a Mayday message, ADS-C automatically triggers a report with time, position information, altitude, and airspeed that goes to ATC.

What Equipment Do I Need for Data Comm/FANS? The equipment you need varies, depending on the current configuration of avionics in your cockpit. At minimum, you need a FMS (flight management system), a datalink unit, and Satcom.

We have over 45 years of experience with avionics and we have all of the necessary equipment and technicians required to make sure that you are fully up-to-date with the latest and greatest in avionics. While many things can be repaired, we can also replace just about any instrument.

We have a nationwide reputation for providing the best in custom avionics installations. We don’t just promote one company and its products, we will use anyone that meets our criteria and standards of excellence to provide you with the best in avionics. We offer a full complement of a highly varied source of avionics that are the best in the business and of the latest technology.

We install many OEM-developed avionic equipment, including: Aspen Avionics, Collins Aerospace, Universal, Garmin, Genesys, Aerosystems, GOGO, AirText, etc. We are here to help you!


The cost of installing a new Wi-Fi system on your jet has actually come down over the years because of several factors. By having a Wi-Fi system in the cabin, it will allow your passengers the ability to communicate via their phones and text messaging with anyone that they need to contact.

If you charter your aircraft and do not have Wifi available, you will lose revenue to companies that do!

It also allows the availability of several entertainment sources to help pass the time and gives an ambience of luxury for their travel.

If you don’t have a Wi-Fi system on your jet, please contact us today about what it would take to get one installed. After hundreds of installations, the biggest response we get from people is that they wonder why they didn’t do it earlier? It has really made a difference with their passengers.
