How can we do Fans1/A, CPDLC, ADSB-out on the cheap.

If you are NOT an Honeywell FMS 5.2 SW airplane:

Chicago Jets offers a  CPDLC  !ONLY! $450K solution.  STANDALONE meaning it displays on a Skylight CDI….(YIKES)

CPDLC Stand-alone Architecture with optional ADS-B r1 copy-1

 

If you are a Honeywell 5.x airplane, Honeywell will drop support for pre 6.1 SW.  they will begin to charge extra for Database updates.

SIL D201604000032 Notice of discontinued support for FMS version prior to 6.1

Notice of discontinued support for FMS version prior to 6.1

This has the effect of nudging people toward complete updates 1 year prior to deadline.

 

 

Texas Gyro has successfully performed a $80K  option for ADSB out.  In a Falcon 900ex.  Transponders upgraded to TDR94D -512, Stand alone WAAS receiver, One annunciator on each Eyebrow, ICG   NO TCAS upgrade, NO FMS upgrade.  There was considerable trouble obtaining certification, but it worked out.  This aircraft is now a CONTIGUAL USA ONLY airplane.
