American Aviation Completes Third King Air Alliant Retrofit

Combines Avidyne Glass, STEC Autopilot With Proven Airframe

Avidyne Corporation and American Aviation of Brooksville, FL announced this week the completion of American's third Alliant Integrated Flight Deck Retrofit in a Beechcraft King Air 200-Series twin-engine turboprop aircraft.

"Updating the timeless King Air with the Alliant system takes one of the best airplanes ever made and makes it better." John Petrick, president of American Aviation.  "King Air 200 owners get the enhanced safety and utility of large, dual-redundant primary flight displays plus S-TEC's high performance digital autopilot in one truly beautiful avionics panel that's widely recognized across the industry as the easiest to learn and he easiest to use."

"After initial certification of the system, American Aviation was our first avionics dealer to retrofit a 3-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" 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 popular traffic, terrain, lightning, radar and radar altimeter systems. In addition, the Alliant package comes with Avidyne's exclusive CMax™ electronic charts and MultiLink™ support.

The companies say the Alliant system enhances aircraft value as the full retail value of the system can be added to the Aircraft Blue Book value. It is the ideal upgrade for modernizing the workhorse of air charter and business aviation operations.
