Approval reduces paperwork and streamlines installation for helicopters needing to meet the FAA 2020 ADS-B mandate

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — July 22, 2016 — BendixKing, a division of Honeywell Aerospace (NYSE: HON), announced it has received FAA approval for the installation of its KT 74 ADS-B Transponder and KGX-Series ADS-B transceivers on a broad list of popular general aviation helicopters. An approved model list (AML) supplemental type certificate (STC) approval is now available for popular airframes including the Bell 429/407/206L/206B, Airbus AS 322/350/B3/355/365, EC 120/130/135/145, Robinson R22/44/66 and MD-500.

     "We are excited to have achieved this milestone for our ADS-B solutions because it significantly reduces the paperwork and overall installation time for helicopter operators" said Justin Ryan, president, BendixKing. "Many of these aircraft were delivered with BendixKing KT 76A/C transponders which make them great candidates for the KT 74, which is a slide in replacement. We also offer a trade-in rebate for the old transponder making this a simple and cost-effective way to meet the upcoming mandate."
