Free NextGen Seminar Scheduled for Oakland, Calif.

LINCOLN, NEB. — Oakland, Calif., is the site of the final, free Duncan Aviation NextGen seminar of the year. Join host Mark Francetic, Regional Avionics Sales Manager, on December 14, from 8 a.m. until 2:55 p.m. at Jet Aviation, 7683 Old Earhart Road, in Oakland, Calif.  

From 8 a.m. until 2:55 p.m. Pacific time, Francetic and channel partners Satcom Direct, Universal Avionics, Garmin, L3 Aviation Products, Rockwell Collins and Honeywell will discuss what equipment you need to comply with the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) and Future Air Navigation Systems 1A (FANS 1A) mandates. Discussion includes information about the Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) and certified equipment currently available for business jets. 

Over the last three years, Francetic has made it his mission to provide useful information about not only the technology but also precisely what equipment owners/operators will need to outfit and/or retrofit their aircraft to comply with the worldwide NextGen mandates.

Registration and a continental breakfast is from 8-8:30 a.m, and lunch will be provided from 11:45 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. Seminar space quickly fills to capacity.

Of the 454 STCs Duncan Aviation holds, 37 are for FAA-approved ADS-B solutions, which allows the company to perform upgrades on more than 100 aircraft models. In addition, Duncan Aviation is the only Rockwell Collins-authorized facility that can perform repairs and upgrades to the TDR-94 and TDR-94D transponders required to comply with the ADS-B mandate. Duncan Aviation also holds or has access to FANS solutions for 24 aircraft models. As needed, Duncan Aviation plans to seek foreign validations for the NextGen STC solutions the company holds. Duncan Aviation’s Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) is always busy on projects for our customers and for companies that have hired our experienced Engineers for outside engineering services.
