Avcon Industries, a subsidiary of Butler National, has received FAA group approval for its next-generation RVSM solution in Learjet 35/36s equipped with the FC-200 autopilot. According to the company, the Avcon RVSM solution now covers the Learjet 23, 24, 25, 28, 29, 35 and 36 and allows interface with the most advanced glass-cockpit display systems.

Avcon president Larry Franke said, “The Avcon solution has been installed on four Learjet 35s and three Learjet 23s. Over the next couple of years, we believe an additional 50 to 100 Learjet 20- and 30-series airplanes will install the Avcon solutions. Our next-generation solution allows customers the flexibility to significantly upgrade their cockpits with top-of-the-line avionics suites.”
