King Air avionics retrofit package now available

Kitchener, Ontario, Canada — Kitchener Aero Avionics (KAAV) now has available a complete digital cockpit upgrade for the KingAir 200.

KAAV also offers a G-1000 cockpit upgrade, but for those that do not wish to upgrade to the full G-1000 suite, this retrofit package offers up a capable and cost-effective alternative, according to company officials.

At the center of the package is the Dual Garmin G600 Flight Display system with Taws-B. It replaces the standard “heavy-iron” avionics suite that originally came with King Air 200s.

Garmin’s G600 system offers PFD and MFD with Synthetic Vision, an Autopilot/Flight Director interface, digital AirData and AHRS Attitude/Heading Reference.

Also included in this upgrade is Garmin’s GTN650 touch screen Navigators, along with the Garmin GTX33ES Transponder with ADS-B Out. It also includes Garmin’s new state-of-the-art GWX70 Weather Radar and GTS 825 Traffic Avoidance Systems, GDL69 XM DataLink, an L3 Trilogy Electronic Standby Instrument System and an S-TEC 2100 3-Axis Digital Flight Control System.

All old wiring, J-boxes, and avionics provisions are removed, all antennas re-bonded, and antenna cables replaced, according to company officials.
