BendixKing’s New ADS-B Solution

ADS-B Solutions for Helicopter – AML STC for KT 74 and KGX

BendixKing is pleased to announce it has received FAA approval for the installation of its KT 74 ADS-B Out compliant transponder and KGX-Series ADS-B transceivers on a broad list of popular light helicopters. An approved model list (AML) supplemental type certificate (STC) approval is now available for popular airframes including the Bell 429/407/206L/206B, Airbus AS 322/350/B3/355/365, EC120/130/135/145, Robinson R22/44/66 and MD Helicopters.

This is an exciting milestone for the BendixKing ADS-B solutions because it significantly reduces the paperwork and overall installation time for helicopter operators. In addition, many of these aircraft are equipped with BendixKing KT 76A/C transponders, making them great candidates for the KT 74, slide in replacement.bk1

A trade-in rebate for most existing BendixKing transponders is available, making this a simple and cost-effective way to meet the upcoming mandate. The link just below identifies all eligible trade-in products and their values.
