March 1st, 2018 – Huron Park, Ontario – The one-stop shop for aircraft maintenance, modification and refurbishment New United Goderich Inc. announced today that they have amended their Embraer 135/145 aircraft ADS-B(OUT) Supplemental Type Certificate (ST03177NY). The modification incorporates Honeywell’s RCZ-8XXM Mode S Extended Squitter transponders and NextGen avionics leader FreeFlight Systems’ 1203C SBAS/GNSS sensor for a complete ADS-B (Out) solution. This amendment enables all Embraer ERJ 135/145 variants in FAA jurisdiction to have ADS-B installed with the same kit used for the Honeywell RCZ-8XXE. It also eliminates the need for the aircraft to have a Honeywell FMS, as the ADS-B system will work with any FMS available in the marketplace today. In addition, New United Goderich expects that EASA will validate the amendment by April 2018.
About 1,000 variants of the Embraer 135/145 are in active service worldwide. This solution utilizes a streamlined, simple design to minimize installation aircraft down time – the amendment requires no additional flight testing. Mandatory ADS-B Out equipage is in effect or is scheduled in most jurisdictions globally, with the U.S. ADS-B mandate only 22 months away.
“The design of our ADS-B(OUT) solution, allows our clients to gain significant time and money savings in their ADS-B(OUT) upgrade,” said Nolan Kiely, Marketing Manager, New United Goderich. “The ability of the stand-alone FreeFlight 1203C system to transmit data directly through the aircraft transponders, allows operators to continue using their existing FMS systems.”
New United Goderich Inc. is now offering full installation of our ADS-B (OUT) solution at our facility located at James T. Field Airport in Ontario Canada (ICAO: CYCE, IATA: YCE), as well as, the sale of partial installation kits.
In order to meet the regulated requirements of the 2020 ADS-B(OUT) mandates, portions of the Honeywell Primus II system are required to be upgraded. The performance standards of the Primus II system are determined by Honeywell Aerospace. Depending on the age and functionality of the equipment on board each specific aircraft, extra fees may apply when upgrading.
Partial Installation Kits will contain:
– Freeflight 1203C SBAS(WAAS) GPS Receiver/Antenna
