The three packages have been tailored to meet the needs of all Pro Line 21-equipped King Air and include automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B), synthetic vision, updated flight management system (FMS) with localizer performance and approach procedures with vertical guidance (LPV/APV), radius-to-fix (RF) legs and the latest version of integrated flight information system (IFIS).

"If you have Rockwell Collins avionics in your aircraft, when it comes to ADS-B, we have you covered," said Craig Olson, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. "With these convenient new packages, in addition to ADS-B you also gain great FMS features and synthetic vision as part of the same upgrade--and it's available right now."
