ADS-B OUT for Citation Jets

December 7, 2017
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Dec. 7, 2017 – BendixKing, a business unit of Honeywell (NYSE: HON), has received Federal Aviation Administration certification to upgrade Cessna CitationJet 525 and 525A aircraft with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Out. Cessna CitationJet owners and operators can now meet the upcoming Federal Aviation Administration mandate with an easy and affordable upgrade to their existing CNI 5000 Integrated Avionics System.

BendixKing’s Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out upgrade for the CNI 5000 allows operators to perform a simple and affordable retrofit on existing BendixKing CNI 5000 systems to meet the Federal Aviation Administration’s Jan. 1, 2020, mandate requirements. The upgrade includes two custom-designed KT 74 ADS-B Out transponders, a new CNI 5000 panel overlay, and an optional GPS receiver and Wi-Fi module that provide ADS-B In capability for free in-flight weather information. Installation of the KT 74 transponders and panel overlay is a slide-and-replace upgrade with no required rack or wiring connector modifications, significantly reducing installation costs and aircraft downtime. In addition, it is the only solution that maintains a consistent look-and-feel across the entire navigation and communications instrument panel.

“The CNI 5000 ADS-B upgrade offers CitationJet owners and operators a reasonably-priced solution that is very quick to install and maintains the aesthetics of the instrument panel,” said St├ęphane Fymat, vice president of Marketing and Product Management, BendixKing. “That crucial mix of minimal aircraft downtime, minimal cost and design quality makes BendixKing the only supplier on the market to offer such compelling value.”

The CNI 5000 ADS-B Out upgrade is certified for the Cessna CitationJet 525 and CitationJet 525A, and will soon be available for the Cessna Citation 550 Bravo.
