Protect Aircraft Residual Values With Avionics Upgrade Plan Now

Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), the leading independent provider of maintenance programs to the business aviation industry, and Constant Aviation, a full-service maintenance, repair, and overhaul business with a nationwide network have teamed up to present ADS-B: The Ins and Outs, a webinar scheduled for June 29, 2017, at 10–11 a.m. CDT.

The Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) avionics mandate is fast approaching and, without a plan to upgrade, aircraft owners could be risking the residual value of their aircraft. This webinar will be hosted by Don Ridge, manager, program development for JSSI, and Jerry Sanders, regional sales manager for Constant Aviation. The two will provide information regarding what components need to be changed, upgrade options, and just how much downtime is involved. Plus, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions or contact a JSSI or Constant Aviation representative to learn more.

“There are a substantial number of aircraft that have not been scheduled for these avionics upgrades and this could threaten not only the airworthiness of the aircraft but also have a major impact on its value if these operators don’t plan ahead now,” stated Ridge. “We know many owners and operators still have questions about the ADS-B requirement, therefore we decided to team up with Constant Aviation to co-host this webinar. Together, we will provide specific details about various options and the next steps that operators need to take to minimize residual value risks and ensure their aircraft is ready to fly on January 1, 2020,” added Ridge.

Earlier this year, JSSI and Constant Aviation introduced a new ADS-B/FANS upgrade program to aircraft owners and operators. The collaboration ensures JSSI clients meet the compliance deadline for ADS-B and Future Air Navigation System (FANS)-1/A avionics upgrades. JSSI works closely with clients and Constant Aviation to schedule the appropriate upgrades and, to maximize efficiency, they can also schedule any upcoming maintenance inspections that may be due at the time. Once equipped, ADS-B technology provides pilots with real-time precision, shared situational awareness and many other advanced applications.
