Yes in November 2017, Garmin released a PMAd flush mount adapter plate for either single or dual installations. Part Number for ordering is 115-02733-00. List Price is $99.95.
BendixKing announced a modification to the CitationJet CNI 5000 using the KT-74 transponder and a remotely mounted WAAS GPS receiver. A package including the hardware, modified bezel, and STC will be available to authorized dealers. Please contact Southeast Aerospace to discuss ADS-B and upgrade options for the CitationJet.
As it is known in the USA, National Stock Number is a 13 digit number assigned to items supplied under the Federal Catalog Sytem.
The typical sequence is XXXX-XX-XXX-XXXX
The NSN consists of the 4 digit Federal Supply Class (FSC) at the beginning and 9 digit National Item Identification Number or NIIN following the FSC. The first 2 digits of the FSC are a broader Federal Supply Classification Group (FSG). The first 2 digits of the NIIN are used to indicate the country that first codified the item. For example, 00 and 01 are USA. 02-10 are unassigned. Many other countries including namely NATO countries recognize and utilize the NSN system as well. The last 7 digits of the NSN is the unique number assigned to the item.
TTI is an abbreviation used by some repair facilities to indicate the Test, Teardown, and Inspection process and/or cost for a component.
Some other related terms may include:
Interchangeable or interchangeability refers to when two or more parts possess functional and physical characteristics that are equivalent in performance and fit. In most cases, interchangeable parts can be exchanged without alteration of the items.
BER is defined as Beyond Economical Repair. BER generally refers to when a repair item requires repair costs 75% or above the market value or procurement cost of the item.
BPR is defined as Beyond Physical Repair. BPR generally refers to a repair item that cannot be returned to service due to excessive damage or component obsolescene regardless of cost.
Southeast Aerospace primarily provides Parts and Repair support in the following Federal Supply Classes:
KX-155A PN 069-01032-0101 and 069-01032-0201 with serial numbers between 29161 and 29321 have Mod 13 already installed therefore include the most current Liquid Crystal Display instead of the original Gas Discharge Display. It should be noted that the Mod 13 may or may not be marked on the PN label on the unit, however that serial number range was manufactured with the LCD.
For the KX-165A, Mod 4 incorporates the LCD upgrade. The applicability for the for the modification reads as follows from the Honeywell service bulletin:
'...applicable to the KX-165A P/N 069-01033-0101 with S/N 5101 and below, without Mod 4 installed...P/N 069-01033-0201 S/N 12941 and below without Mod 4 installed...NOTE: P/N 069-01033-0101 with SNs between 4491 and 5101 have Mod 4 identified on on the mod section of the SN label. P/N 069-01033-0201 with SNs between 12671 and 12941 have Mod 4 identified on the mod section of the SN tag. On these units, the Mod is fully included but the P/N label on some sub-assemblies is incorrect.'

As of September 2017, the Garmin G5 electronic flight instrument is not a replacement for the KI-256 flight command indicator.
The DG/HSI version of the G5 can interface to a variety of autopilots such as the King KFC-150/200 to provide heading and course error to the autopilot. The G5 can interface to select autopilots for coupled flight in heading and nav modes with a compatible navigation source.
well. The KI-256 is not simply an attitude gyro/indicator. It supplies attitude data to KFC autopilots and is a flight director as well.
For the G5 DG/HSI version with nav interface (PN K10-00280-30), only Garmin nav/GPS radios will interface to the G5. This includes the Garmin GNC-255 series, SL30, GNS-430/530 series, and GTN-650/750 series navigators.
Aircraft On Ground or AOG is a term used in aviation indicating that a problem exists that prevents an aircraft from flying. It implies a heightened urgency to acquire parts or service to allow the aircraft to be put back into service and prevent further delays.

A: BendixKing announced a modification to the CitationJet CNI 5000 using the KT-74 transponder and a remotely mounted WAAS GPS receiver. A package including the hardware, modified bezel, and STC will be available to authorized dealers. Please contact Southeast Aerospace to discuss ADS-B and upgrade options for the CitationJet.
A: Starting September 19, 2016, the FAA is offering a limited time, first-come, first-serve rebate for owners that meet the criteria. The detailed rebate information & process can be found on the FAA's ADS-B Rebate webpage.
"Beginning this month, the FAA will issue 20,000 rebates on a first-come, first-served basis for one year or until all 20,000 rebates are claimed - whichever comes first. The rebate is available only to owners of US registered, fixed wing, single engine piston aircraft that were first registered before January 1, 2016.
Aircraft owners who have a standard airworthiness aircraft may have a repair station or an appropriately-licensed A&P mechanic install the ADS-B equipment. Owners of aircraft certified as experimental or light sport must adhere to applicable regulations and established standards when installing ADS-B equipment.
Owners are only eligible for the rebate if they install the avionics after September 19, 2016, and within 90 days of the rebate reservation date. Aircraft owners will have 60 days after the scheduled installation date to validate their equipped by flying their aircraft, and will then be able to claim the rebate."
A: First, we would recommend contacting a local Garmin dealer to discuss the following:
Bendix/King, L3 and ACSS recently released the NXT-700 as form fit replacement for the MST-67A. It is DO-260B compliant to meet the ADS-B Out mandate.A: In relation to ADS-B compliance for the MST-67A, Honeywell is developing the MST-100B. Please see attached brochure. Unfortunately, this is the only information that Honeywell has released regarding the MST-100B. Pricing and lead-time are to be announced sometime later this year by Honeywell. Regarding other options for the MST-67A, there are a few companies in the US that are developing solutions using the new Garmin GTX-3000 remote transponder.
A: Unfortunately, the GPS in the KMD-150 does not comply with any of the requirements for GPS performance in the latest ADS-B mandate or DO-260B. More or less, although it is not specifically referred as such, current WAAS GPS receivers are the only GPS receivers that meet the performance requirement needed for ADS-B Out.
Considering your current situation, here are a few possible scenarios for you to comply:
The second option is obviously going to be more expensive but gives you a little more versatility and more capability in your aircraft. I only included UAT (978) options because I am assuming that you are flying below 18,000 feet.
A few questions related to the KGX 150 :
There are a few things to be aware of with all UAT installations. These units require a control device and a switch to place them in air/ground mode. The switch is not a major issue and is a minor cost. However, the controller is additional if the aircraft is not already equipped with a transponder and/or display (MX20 for example).
As you’ll see below, yes, the KT-76C will pair with the unit via the antennas. Basically the UAT will sense the XPDR. This will enable you to send the Mode A and IDENT information to the UAT unit. However, you are still required per the FAA to have a way to know your ADS-B status. If a suitable display such as the Garmin MX20, Aspen EFD1000 or the KSN 770 is not installed, then a remote control unit is required. The KGX Control Panel list price is currently $619. Depending on the aircraft and the kind of flying, there are a lot of factors and options to consider.
A: Portable ADS-B Out systems, also known as "suitcase" units, should not be operated (transmitting) aboard any aircraft. While marketing associated with these units may imply approval for use by way of an FCC license, the FAA prohibits their use for the following reasons:
