BBA Aviation’s Signature TechnicAir is now upgrading Beechcraft King Air 350s equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line II avionics to the new Pro Line Fusion touchscreen flight deck. The TechnicAir facility in Winston-Salem, N.C., worked with Rockwell Collins to obtain the FAA supplemental type certificate for the upgrade.
The Pro Line Fusion package is basically the same as the avionics suite on new Fusion-equipped King Air 350s and includes three 14.1-inch displays with configurable windows and touchscreen control. Also included are NextGen features such as ADS-B OUT, SBAS-capable global navigation satellite system, LPV approach capability, radius-to-fix legs and more.
Signature TechnicAir is co-located with Signature Flight Support FBOs at 18 U.S. airports, including bases recently added from the Landmark Aviation acquisition. According to a company spokesman, most of the TechnicAir locations can install the King Air 350 Pro Line II to Fusion upgrade.
