[Avionics Today 11-13-2015] Butler Avionics, a manufacturer and provider of support systems for commercial and military aircraft, has received an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval of the installation of its Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out avionics solution into the Learjet Model 60.
The FAA STC approval provides for a standalone ADS-B Out solution by retrofit of the two existing transponders with the Garmin GTX-3000 transponders and installation of the GDL 88 GPS/SBAS WAAS position source.
The Butler National ADS-B solution is now available for the retrofit installs, the Garmin GTX 3000 transponders, the GDL 88 GPS/WAAS position source and an optional Flight Stream 210. The Learjet 60 ADS-B installation generally takes seven to 10 days, according to the company.
