Turboprops deliver an ideal balance of speed, efficiency, and short field performance. They’re a joy to fly and offer tremendous practical advantages for a range of General Aviation missions.
So, shouldn’t your avionics offer just as much ease of use, real-world operational advantages — oh, and fun, too? If your turboprop is lacking a modern panel, then upgrade it with a NexAir Smart Panel™. Need to upgrade or update just some of your equipment without performing a major panel upgrade? Glad to help. Or maybe you need RVSM certification? We can do that. Pressure vessels, RADAR, heated windshields, hot section engine health monitoring — none of these factors intimidate our designers or installers. We’ve been there, done that. So whatever your needs, NexAir has the experience, skills, facilities, and equipment needed to enhance the utility and fun of your turboprop.
Given that much of the financial value of your turboprop is tied up in the engines, talk to Dave about NexAir’s turbine engine health monitoring solutions. Dave Fetherston co-founded Altair Avionics, now part of Pratt & Whitney Canada, to bring engine monitoring technology to the aviation industry. Today, Dave’s engine diagnostics innovations are standard equipment on most turbine-powered aircraft.
Piper Meridian Before & After

BEFORE — Shown below is the before version of the panel, with dual GNS 430s (non-WAAS) and a dizzying array of small, separate glass displays, backup steam gauges, and a DME. It’s more than any pilot would want to cope with while shooting an IFR approach to minimums. Click to enlarge.
