Not completely. Over the past year we have upgraded most, if not all, BE99s to include GPS. 2018 is the year we intend to do the same with the metros.

That’s nice. I saw my first B99 the other day at beef island and I climbed to the cockpit. Impressive atmosphere and HUGE compared to my islander haha. I was impressed honestly

Actually the pilot told me they were upgrading them (SJU based) with Shinny Garmin ‘sth’ and autopilots

Yeah, If I could do the ads over again, I would just list 500 PIC and be done with it...

Quick question for current Ameriflight pilots: What are Ameriflights plans to meet the ADS-B requirements for 2020? I assume they will invest in what is needed even for the older Navajo and Beech 99 airframes? And will the upgrades bring Ameriflight into the RNAV world?
Sorry if this has been asked before... I missed it, if so.
Thanks!

Yes, they have been bringing in BE99s one at a time for the GPS/transponder upgrades. They typically get an stec 30 autopilot in the process.

I don't fly at a base with chieftains, but yeah, 2020 is the deadline for everything to comply.

GPS and AP makes that job way more attractive :-)

Autopilots? Things are changing since the 1980's.

Javichu 11-10-2017 10:22 AM

Those Stec 30 are so odd haha

I'm sure, especially for a new hire in unfamiliar territory. The added situational awareness, and even just heading mode in turbulence is one less axis of motion to juggle in a high workload environment.
