Valair Aviation, a full-service MRO and FBO facility located at Wiley Post Airport, has experienced steady growth in Avionics upgrades and installs over the past several years.  With the Federal Aviation Administration requirement for US-based business aircrafts to upgrade their Auto Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) capability by December 31, 2019, the avionics services performed by Valair have been increasingly in demand. 

“We work closely with our customers to create solutions that work within a budget and an agreeable scheduled downtime,” stated Mike Bowen, Senior Vice President of Ground Operations at Valair Aviation. “Aircraft owners invest in avionics upgrades because it adds instant value and by upgrading to a qualified Avionics system, Valair is helping customers meet ADS-B compliance.”

Valair has performed installations ranging from Garmin G500 to G1000 solutions on airframes including Beechcraft 90s, 200s, 350s, Pipers and Aero Commanders.  Customers have come from as far away as Alaska and California for Avionics work performed by Valair whose main customer base is concentrated in the Mid-west. 

“Through customer referrals and connections at business aviation events, Valair has attracted customers outside of our Central U.S. region and even completed projects with government customers around the globe,” added Bowen.  Valair Aviation representatives will be available during the National Business Aviation Association’s annual convention in Orlando, Fla., October 16-18 at booth #1313.

In addition to being one of the largest Garmin dealers in the South Central Region, Valair Aviation also offers airframe maintenance, paint and interior at its one-stop facility.  Customers can save time and money by combining their Avionics upgrade with an inspection, world class interior refurbishment or exterior paint services.
