Elliott says STC is popular because it doesn't require other upgrades.December 4, 2019, 9:54 AMMore than 600 business aircraft have been equipped with Elliott Aviation’s remote-mount, Garmin-based ADS-B Out STC, the Moline, Illinois-based MRO provider said this week. Those aircraft include Beechjets, Challengers, Citations, Falcons, Hawkers, and Learjets. The STC integrates with existing cockpit controls including aircraft equipped with TCAS II. It also offers ADS-B In through a Bluetooth-compatible device via Garmin’s Flight Stream wireless platform. Remote-mount Garmin GTX-3000 smart transponders replace an aircraft’s transponders as part of the STC, which Elliott said doesn’t require any modification to a current avionics package nor upgrades to current equipment. Operators who choose the STC can also receive a $50,000 credit toward a future Garmin G5000 installation on Beechjet 400A/XP or Citation Excel/XLS twinjets. “Our Garmin ADS-B STCs have been extremely popular because, in many instances, they can save operators tens of thousands of dollars,” said Elliott director of avionics sales Conrad Theisen. “Most of our customers are looking for cost-effective ADS-B solutions that do not require additional upgrades, and that is exactly what we provide.” Business Aviation
