Avionics updates brewing up…

None of the following avionics updates have been scheduled yet, but this is what’s in the pipeline…

  • 3WF: A GTN Xi update that will provide glide range ring, a best glide airport indicator, and a couple more improvements will likely be installed during the next maintenance
  • 9ES: Adding Sirius XM for WX data link map / NEXRAD display on the MFD and satellite radio stations for relaxing tunes (that get automatically interrupted for all things ATC) is now scheduled to be completed by mid February (8US already has these features)
  • Both twins: Upgrading the GPS to WAAS for more moving map position accuracy and a whole new plethora of IFR approaches should hopefully be available sometime in Q1 of 2021

We’ll keep you updated… stay healthy, and stay current!
