VISTA, Calif. — Sandel Avionics has introduced Sandel Avilon, a retrofit flight deck serving King Air owners.
Priced at $175,000, Avilon includes all the components of a NextGen flight deck, including radios, Flight Management Computer (FMC), audio control, ADS-B capable Mode S transponder, and high performance flight director/autopilot.
The patent-pending Avilon Path Guidance Panel, which integrates tactical aircraft control with the FMC, provides a continuous displayed path, making single-pilot operations, in particular, safer and less stressful, according to company officials.
Avilon is delivered assembled. Virtually all legacy avionics and associated wiring are completely removed from the aircraft, allowing installation centers a clean replacement of the old panel.
Avilon for the 200 series King Air line will begin shipping in June 2016.
