Avidyne works with Monterrey firm to upgrade PC-12
The retrofit installation carried out by Avidyne in association with SAM on a PC-12 includes Avidyne IFD550 and IFD540 FMS/GPS/NAV/COMs, plus dual AXP322 Mode S ADS-B OUT Transponders and AMX240 audio panel.

Avidyne Corporation, a provider of integrated avionics systems, flight displays and safety systems for general aviation aircraft, business jets and helicopters, has completed a full-stack Avidyne avionics upgrade for the Pilatus PC-12 by Servicios Aereos Montre (SAM) of Monterrey, Mexico. The retrofit installation includes Avidyne IFD550 and IFD540 FMS/GPS/NAV/COMs, plus dual AXP322 Mode S ADS-B OUT Transponders and AMX240 audio panel.

“We are really excited to be working with Servicios Aereo Montre to put together this avionics upgrade package for the PC-12,” comments John Talmadge, Avidyne's VP of worldwide sales. “Our regional sales and support team has made significant inroads in the Latin American market with our IFD systems, and SAM is a big supporter of Avidyne in the region.”

“The PC-12 is a highly-capable aircraft, and this dual-IFD FMS configuration with integrated approach charts, airport diagrams and wireless iPad interface, gives its pilots much more capability for completing their fleet missions,” adds Juan Blaha, Avidyne's regional manager for Latin America.
