American Aviation of Brooksville, Florida, has completed its third Alliant Integrated Flight Deck retrofit in a Beechcraft King Air 200.
“Updating the timeless King Air with the Alliant system takes one of the best airplanes ever made and makes it better,” said John Petrick, president of American Aviation.
“After initial certification of the system, American Aviation was our first avionics dealer to retrofit a three-display Entegra system into a King Air, and they have now completed their third Alliant system,” said Rob Higby, Avidyne‘s vice president of sales, marketing, and customer service. “The Alliant package enables King Air 200 owners to update their aircraft with state-of-the-art situational awareness and safety tools at a fraction of the cost of a new aircraft, and American Aviation is quickly becoming a go-to dealer for Alliant King Air installations with all of the experience and expertise that they bring.”
The Alliant Integrated Flight Deck package includes dual-redundant Avidyne Entegra EXP5000 10.4-inch primary flight displays (PFDs) and an EX5000 multi-function display (MFD), the S-TEC IntelliFlight 2100 digital autopilot and Mid-Continent two-inch standby instruments. The system interfaces with most traffic, terrain, lightning, radar and radar altimeter systems. In addition, the Alliant package comes with Avidyne’s CMax electronic charts and MultiLink support. CMax electronic charts display Jeppesen’s approach charts and airport diagrams on the EX5000 MFD. MultiLink supports the display of Avidyne’s MLB700 Satellite Broadcast Datalink Weather for datalink weather across most of North America, and the MLX770 Two-Way Datalink Transceiver for world-wide datalink weather and text messaging.
