FreeFlight Systems Offers Avail Performance Package, A Complete Twin Turboprop ADS-B SolutionPosted by KingAirNation — Friday, February 22, 2019
FreeFlight Systems announced this week that the Avail Performance Package is now shipping and available for installation. The package recently received FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) and Approved Model List (AML) certification. The AML STC allows for the installation of the Avail Performance Package into over 25 makes and models of twin turboprop aircraft from M7 Aerospace, Piper Aircraft, and Textron Aviation.
FreeFlight Systems designed the Avail Performance Package to provide a cost effective and complete ADSB solution for King Air and twin turboprop aircraft. Included in the Avail package is dual 1090 Mode S/ES transponders, the RANGR-RX/G 978 ADSB receiver with an internal WAAS/GPS, integrated WiFi, and a single control head. These remote mounted solutions will provide twin turboprop aircraft a modular, all in one solution to equip with ADSB In and Out for the upcoming January 1, 2020 mandate.
The FDL1090TX is one of the smallest Mode S/ES transponders available today – the unit can be mounted anywhere within the pressure vessel. The control head’s intuitive user interface features positive control knobs and push buttons for squawk codes designation, fault annunciation, and IDENT and VFR operations on the sunlight readable, backlit LED display. It fits in a standard two and a quarter inch instrument mounting, keeping panel disruption at a minimum.
The TSO certified RANGR-RX/G serves as the compliant position source required for ADSB and also provides pilots with critical ADSB Flight Information Services Broadcast (FISB) and Traffic Information Services Broadcast (TISB) data, both modernizing the aircraft cockpit and drastically improving situational awareness. The RANGR-RX/G offers clients an installed solution that provides inflight ADSB In information to a multitude of preferred MFDs, mobile EFBs, and tablet devices for viewing traffic and weather while inflight.
