In relation to NE (New) parts, many OEMs change their prices and availability without any notice to dealers or the industry. Therefore, through the REQUEST or RFQ indication, we ask that customers contact us for the most accurate price and availability.

In relation to SV & OH parts, the used parts aftermarket in the aviation industry is not an infinite supply. It is a dynamic, constantly changing market that is significantly affected by and susceptible to highs and lows in supply and demand. Therefore, although we attempt to, at times, we are unable to predict the exact moment when an item may be available. Once again, through the REQUEST or RFQ indication on our website, we ask that customers contact us for the most current and accurate price and availability.

Yes, but only if it P/N 064-1009-02 or -03. The harness/connector on the -02/03 KTR-905 is the same but it is physically different than the KTR-900A. The KTR-905 is smaller than the KTR-900A. Therefore, a new rack needs to be installed for the KTR-905 replacement. In addition, the KTR-900A and KTR-905 -02/03 must be used with the KFS-590A control. The KTR-905 -00 and -01 must be used with the KFS-590B as it requires parallel BCD tuning.
No. Bendix/King did not produce a version of the KTR-905 with 760 channels or any sort of extended range. From original manufacturing and per the maintenance manual, the unit is only capable of tuning 720 channels. Likewise, there is no service bulletin released by Bendix/King to upgrade this unit to be capable of tuning more than 720 channels.
No. Bendix/King did not produce a repalcement unit that is capable 8.33 Khz channel spacing. You must install a different radio with this capability.
As part of our promise to provide the most honest, quality service to our customers, Southeast Aerospace adheres to strict guidelines for certification according to the FAA and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM). While most avionics components do not include a prescribed overhaul procedure in the Maintenance Manual, the FAA has set forth guidelines for the cleaning and inspecting of components as referenced in FAR Part 43.2. Therefore, if a component cannot meet the standards of this Federal Air Regulation in relation to inspection criteria and cleaning potential then it should not be deemed as Overhauled. Southeast Aerospace does not believe in simply providing words on a tag or maintenance release to represent the condition of a component. SEA stands behind the work and service followed through with each and every FAA 8130-3 maintenance release it provides.
Most of the King (now Honeywell) Gold Crown components were originally manufactured in the early to mid 1970s. King then Bendix/King now Honeywell discontinued production these components many years ago replacing them with the Bendix/King Gold Crown III product line.

Most of the original Gold Crown products incorporate 1960s and 70s analog technology. As a result, most service parts needed to maintain and repair original King Gold Crown components are no longer available. Therefore, you will experience limited to no warranty available and unreliability for all of the original Gold Crown units.

Southeast Aerospace offers many affordable, upgradeable options for aircraft with original Gold Crown avionics. As avionics integration specialists and premier Honeywell Bendix/King dealer, Southeast Aerospace is experienced and knowledgeable on all Gold Crown generations.
