N47601 Gets New Avionics, ADS-B, and a New Interior

Our Archer II, N47601, has come back from its annual with new avionics and a whole new interior! The new fabric is a Douglas Interiors breathable mesh, and should be comfortable and beautiful for many years.

The panel now has a Garmin 530W navigator, a new Garmin GTX-345 ADS-B like we installed in N493JL, and a PS Engineering Audio Panel. The old LORAN is removed. We’ll plan to refresh the panel color to better match the new interior in the next year or so.

N493JL is now ADS-B-equipped

Our 182S Skylane now has a Garmin GTX-345 ADS-B In/Out transponder in its panel. This meets ADS-B Out requirements, will work directly with Garmin Pilot apps for showing weather and traffic, and also will ensure that if you use a portable ADS-B solution in 3JL that you will always receive ADS-B Traffic (when possible).
