Duncan Aviation Receives Approval to Upgrade Honeywell’s RMU and RCZ Units
Duncan Aviation announces it has received approval from Honeywell Aerospace to perform automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) upgrades on the Honeywell RMU-855 and the RCZ-850 and RCZ-833 series transponders on aircraft that are on-site at a Duncan Aviation facility.
All three of Duncan Aviation’s full-service facilities (Battle Creek, MI; Lincoln, NE; and Provo, UT) and its 27 Satellite Avionics Shops and workaway stations will be open through the final weeks of 2019. For visits to a Satellite Avionics Shop or a full-service Duncan Aviation facility for an ADS-B upgrade, the Honeywell units will be sent to Lincoln for the modification.
“Our turntime at this point has been running five days,” says team leader of Component Technical Representatives, Dan Magnus.
The FAA’s January 1, 2020, mandate deadline for upgrading aircraft to ADS-B is a mere six weeks away.
“With the FAA’s mandate drawing closer, we’re especially pleased to have received this approval from Honeywell to perform these modifcations in-house. It will allow us to maximize the time remaining to complete ADS-B mods for these systems and prevent flight delays for our customers in the new year,” says Duncan Aviation’s vice president of Parts Sales, Avionics, Accessories & Satellites, Mark Cote.
