HBS is taking pre-orders with installations scheduled to begin upon completion of Garmin’s Supplemental Type Certificate, which is expected in mid-2011.
“This G1000 upgrade will enhance the situational awareness, redundancy and overall navigational capability of our early King Air 350 aircraft with first generation Electronic Flight Information Systems,” said Christi Tannahill, HBC vice president, Global Customer Support. “This order is a great example of the effectiveness of our Global Customer Support booth and staff at this year’s NBAA and the solutions we are providing to our customers.”
Standridge Color Corp. owns several Hawker Beechcraft products, including two King Air E90s, a Baron G58 and a King Air 350. Standridge is an international company that specializes in plastics and color compounding.
“We selected HBS for the upgrade because its Fulton County avionics shop is a first-class operation with a very knowledgeable team,” said Donald Young, Air Transportation, Standridge Color Corp. “We’ve completed numerous upgrades there and appreciate the great quality and service they provide.”
HBS also offers the G1000 upgrade for King Air C90 and B200 owners and operators.
