MONTERREY, Mexico (PRWEB) April 18, 2018
Aerovitro, an aviation and avionics installation and modification agency headquartered in Monterrey, Mexico, announced recent ADS-B Out installations on Mexican aircraft flying into U.S. airspace.
Aerovitro is an authorized Rockwell Collins dealer. The Company recently completed ADS-B Out system upgrades on a Bombardier Challenger 300 and a Learjet 60XR. Rockwell Collins TDR-94D DO-260B compliant transponders and GPS-4000S SBAS receivers were used in the installations meeting stringent worldwide ADS-B Out regulations.
“ADS-B Out is a cornerstone of NexGen modernization in an aging fleet of aircraft flying today,” said Jose Carrera, General Manager of Aerovitro. “Aerovitro is fully committed to bringing Mexican aircraft up to U.S. compliance in according with the deadline. We also anticipate Mexico aviation authorities to adopt the same or similar regulations. Rockwell Collins technology was the superior leading choice.”
The Challenger and Learjet ADS-B Out installations used CMD Flight Solution's AML STC certification, which is approved for use in Mexico. “CMD Flight Solutions became the preferred partner for this project because of their cost-effective solution to satisfy the upcoming FAA mandated requirements,” said Luis Zamudio, Technical Sales Manager of Aerovitro.
Aerovitro currently has more ADS-B Out installations scheduled, including on a Gulfstream G-200 and Falcon 2000. Details regarding these custom upgrades will become available upon project completion and certification.
