Troubleshooting & Repairs
We have the licensed, experienced avionics technicians and certified test equipment needed to rapidly troubleshoot and repair your avionics. As an authorized dealer for dozens of today’s leading brands, we have access to current test and repair protocols for everything from simple VOR displays to the most advanced integrated touchscreen flight decks. We’ll accurately diagnose the problem before spending money replacing components. And when you do need to repair, overhaul or replace an item, we’ll work with our extensive supply chain to source or service your equipment with a minimum of downtime.
NexAir can evaluate your current revision levels and suggest software updates that are appropriate to your flying. Today’s avionics are continuously being enhanced through software updates that add new features, functionality, compatibility, or regulatory compliance. Some avionics offer tiered levels of performance, allowing you to buy in at one level, then expand by adding additional capabilities, such as synthetic vision, when your needs or budget allow. For avionics maintenance, service bulletins outline what’s available, what’s optional, and in some rare cases, what’s mandated by an AD.
NexAir can help you find and implement the hardware updates for your existing equipment that make sense for your flying. Some avionics can be improved through hardware updates that add new features, functionality, compatibility, or regulatory compliance. The Garmin GTX 330 transponder is a perfect example. When first offered, the 330 and even the 330-ES did not meet the regulatory requirements needed to support ADS-B compliance. But an update is available that will convert your current 330 to the ADS-B compliant GTX 330-ES, or Extended Squitter version. For older 330-ES transponders, a free update is available to bring your 330-ES into full compliance with the ADS-B mandate (some labor and handling charges will apply). The same is true of the remotely mounted GTX 33.
14 CFR 91.413 – ATC Transponder Tests and Inspections
Your transponder has to be tested every 24 months. This is your basic “VFR certification.” NexAir can provide this service at any of our fixed locations, or if you’re AOG due to a certification lapse, we can visit your hangar with our Mobile Service Van and provide on-site testing and certification services.
14 CFR 91.411 – Altimeter System and Altitude Reporting Equipment Tests and Inspections
If you fly IFR, your Pitot Static System, Altimeter, VSI, and Altitude Encoder Reporting System have to be tested and certified every 24 months. This is your basic “IFR certification.” NexAir can provide this service any of our fixed locations, or if you’re AOG due to a certification lapse, we can visit your hangar with our Mobile Service Van and provide on-site testing and certification services.
