Members should receive an email for access to the Pilot’s Guide, Quick Reference and Simulator for the GTN 750 GPS.

Avionics Upgrade Scheduled

Posted on Posted in Airplane Maintenance

Avionics Upgrade for 346K scheduled for April 12-22, 2015!

The highlights

Our antiquated KLN 89B GPS unit will be replaced with a bigger, brighter Garmin GTN-750 touch screen navigation unit.

Our ailing KT-76C panel transponder will be replaced with a GTX-32 remote transponder with digital encoding.

A Garmin GDL88 ADS-B In/Out unit will make 346K ready for 2020 and send traffic and weather info to our new GTN-750.

Sadly, we must bid farewell to our KR-87 ADF, which must be removed to make room for the GTN-750’s large touch screen.
