Germany's Augsburg Air Service is enabling its King Air customers to convert to the Garmin G1000 NXi avionics suite. In order to meet EASA's ADS-B Out mandate, all aircraft in Europe that fly faster than 250 kts or are heavier than 5.7 tonnes must be equipped with an ADS-B transponder by 7 June 2020. The ADS-B technology is incorporated into the NXi package, so by choosing to upgrade, owners can future-proof their turboprop.

Augsburg expects that there will be a rush in 2019 to install the technology and says that this could spike the price of conversions by up to 15 per cent.
