As the newest torchbearer for the SJ30 program, San Antonio, Texas-based SyberJet (Booth 4259) brings a little swagger to this year’s NBAA convention with the debut of a mockup of the company’s new flight deck clearly inspired by high-end (and fast) automobiles.

Designed by Jason Castriota, whose portfolio includes work at Ferrari, Maserati and Audi, the look emphasizes sweeping shapes, rendered in high-level materials such as Alcantara faux suede, brushed aluminum and carbon-fiber veneer. Thick red stitching contrasts against black leather along the top of the panel.

After the stroke of midnight on Dec. 31, 2019, all aircraft that fly in U.S. airspace anywhere transponders are required must carry equipment that meets the FAA’s automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B OUT) standard. The ADS-B OUT mandate is part not only of the FAA’s but many other countries’ plans to replace inaccurate and expensive radar surveillance systems with highly accurate, GPS-based ADS-B, which reports aircraft position, velocity and identification information to air traffic controllers and other aircraft.

Garmin has devised a stand-alone automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) system that satisfies global ADS-B requirements, yet leverages existing avionics equipment to alleviate the need for expensive flight management system and cockpit display upgrades.

Shortly after the NBAA Convention exhibit hall opens this morning at 10 a.m., Universal Avionics Systems will unveil an ambitious new product line (at 11 a.m., Booth 273), an integrated flight deck–called InSight–that leverages the company’s avionics expertise and also vaults it into the ranks of manufacturers of full avionics suites for Part 25 business jets. A demonstration rig of the new flight deck is available in the booth, and NBAA attendees can also see the InSight system installed in Universal’s Citation VII at the Orlando Executive Airport static display.

The Aireon Aircraft Locating and Emergency Response Tracking (Aireon Alert) network, a free service expected to be rolled out in 2017, will allow rescue agencies to request the location and last flight track of any 1090 MHz ADS-B-equipped aircraft anywhere in the world, including remote or oceanic regions not covered by ATC surveillance.

U.S. Navy MQ-4C Triton

The U.S. Navy is shifting its developmental fleet of unmanned MQ-4C Tritons across the country to introduce mission systems and continue flight- testing the new maritime surveillance aircraft. The first of three Triton system development test articles (SDTA) arrived recently at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md.; the other two will follow by the end of October.

Cessna received FAA type certification for the Citation CJ3+ on Thursday, some six months after the company introduced the new derivative. The CJ3+ features a Garmin G3000 integrated avionics suite, an automatically controlled cabin pressurization system and an advanced fault and maintenance diagnostic system.

The FAA mandate to equip with ADS-B OUT avionics is coming in fewer than 5.5 years, and many owners and operators are still waiting to upgrade their aircraft, either because they’re hoping prices will drop and technology will improve or they aren’t sure they’ll be keeping their aircraft beyond the deadline.
