Ohio-based aviation service provider Winner Aviation has completed the first upgrade of a Hawker Premier I with the Collins Aerospace (formerly Rockwell Collins) Pro Line 21 airspace modernization package. The installation included a display and FMS upgrade, ADS-B, provisionally installed graphical weather and integrated flight information systems (IFIS), synthetic vision (SVS), database unit, and localizer performance with vertical guidance (LPV). The company performed a “squawk free” test flight before the aircraft was returned to service.
“As the ADS-B Out requirements become the standard in 2020, many business jet owners are now struggling to find qualified repair stations to meet their needs on time,” said Winner Aviation avionics manager Neil Simon, adding that completion of this modification demonstrates the company’s expertise in major integrated avionics upgrades. “Having the Collins Aerospace dealership and maintenance authorization further showcases how we can provide reliable technology at predictable costs. These upgraded aircraft will meet and exceed all requirements for years to come.”
Winner operates an FBO/MRO at Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport.
