Datalink Requirement Comes to the North Atlantic

In case you missed it - from AIN today - All aircraft operating in the North Atlantic organized track system between FL350 and FL390 must now be equipped with Fans 1A or its equivalent, controller pilot datalink communications (CPDLC) and automatic dependent surveillance contract (ADS-C), as Phase 2A of the North Atlantic datalink mandate took effect last week.

The mandate is part of an initiative created to help cope with the ever-increasing volume of air traffic, while enhancing communication, surveillance and ATC-intervention capabilities across portions of North Atlantic.

Thinking about a flight deck upgrade for your King Air?

Well Garmin is making it easier to make your choice include their G1000 retrofit suite. They have announced two new rebate programs for select King Air owners and operators who choose to upgrade their avionics to the G1000 Integrated Flight Deck.

· King Air C90

· King Air 200, B200
