Ken Weber, an Astra pilot based at Teterboro (N.J.) Airport (TEB), won Atlantic Aviation’s “Top-off=$10,000” drawing at last month’s NBAA Convention in Orlando, Fla. Pilots who topped off their aircraft (with at least 200 gal) at an Atlantic Aviation FBO in the months preceding the convention were eligible for the drawing. The prize was a prepaid $10,000 American Express card, which Weber can use for whatever purchases he wants.
Duncan Aviation has certified and installed a Rockwell Collins IDS-3000 retrofit cockpit and IFIS (integrated flight information system) file server in a customer Astra. Duncan’s Lincoln, Neb. facility performed the installation and gained the STC for the package, which applies to the Astra and Astra SP, the company said.
