BendixKing introduces subscription plans for avionics equipment

BendixKing has announced a new Avionics-as-a-Service plan, allowing aircraft operators and owners to upgrade avionics via a monthly subscription instead of an outright purchase, the company said.

It will be an industry first in the integrated avionics segment, and will be available soon for many BendixKing products including AeroVueTM, AeroVue Touch, xVue Touch, KSN 770 navigator, AeroWave satellite communications system and the MST 70B transponder with ADS-B Out.

Similar to a cellular plan that includes a new mobile phone, the subscription will include virtually everything: avionics equipment, installation at an authorized BendixKing dealer, equipment repairs, software updates, databases and navigation charts, as well as technical support.

BendixKing, a business unit of Honeywell (NYSE: HON), is committed to the creation of innovative, reliable, intuitive avionics for the general aviation pilot.

Honeywell Aerospace business unit develops innovative solutions for more fuel-efficient automobiles and airplanes, more direct and on-time flights, safer flying and runway traffic, along with aircraft engines, cockpit and cabin electronics, wireless connectivity services, logistics, and more.
