Datalink Requirement Comes to the North Atlantic

In case you missed it - from AIN today - All aircraft operating in the North Atlantic organized track system between FL350 and FL390 must now be equipped with Fans 1A or its equivalent, controller pilot datalink communications (CPDLC) and automatic dependent surveillance contract (ADS-C), as Phase 2A of the North Atlantic datalink mandate took effect last week.

The mandate is part of an initiative created to help cope with the ever-increasing volume of air traffic, while enhancing communication, surveillance and ATC-intervention capabilities across portions of North Atlantic.

Garmin G1000 Rebate Programme in Effect Now!

Garmin G1000 Retrofit Cockpit on King Air

Thinking about a flight deck upgrade for your King Air?

Well Garmin is making it easier to make your choice include their G1000 retrofit suite. They have announced two new rebate programs for select King Air owners and operators who choose to upgrade their avionics to the G1000 Integrated Flight Deck.

The popular G1000 retrofit suite for the King Air series continues to receive exceptional response and provides operators with enhanced capabilities that minimize pilot workload, increase situational awareness and provide NextGen avionics capabilities at a fraction of the cost associated with purchasing a new aircraft.

This rebate program is effective beginning January 20th through May 29th, 2015 and is valid for the following aircraft pursuing a G1000 upgrade:

· King Air C90

· King Air 200, B200

· King Air 300

· King Air 350

For more information on a King Air upgrade with Garmin talk to Bill Arsenault.
