Installing extra's

Post by Eric1939Yoco1946 » Tue Apr 11, 2017 9:28 am

Hello all,

I'm new here because I intend to buy a Beechraft B55.

1) I want to ask if it is easy to install one of the three Avionics Milviz mentions in their advertisement
2) And wich one do you advice?
3) And also if there place enough on the dasboard for that extra WX Advantage Radar? Or is it a popup?

It's not clear for me...

Probably someone can help me?

Cincelary,
Eric van Dijken

1.) The B55 installer is very easy to use and very efficient.

2.) This is quite subjective. It seems the majority insist on installing the F1 GTN 750 on anything that has wings. I disagree and prefer to install the predominant avionics for the age and class of aircraft.
what I do is research actual aircraft for sale (i.e. controller.com) and make the decision accordingly.
by the way, the default Milviz GNS package should be considered and is my personal preference in the excellent Cessna C310R.

3.) The WX Advantage Radar is an excellent for the Beech B55 and the Cessna C310R. Researching the latter aircraft, I found almost all C310Rs for sale have some sort of after market radar installation.

Overall, I'm partial to the Cessna C310R but both are highly recommended. Moreover, I believe there is a C310R update in the works that I think many of us are eagerly awaiting.

@Les Parson

Thank you for advice!

Ik think about to wait for the new Cessna C310R , or still buying a beautifull Beech 55. Do you have an idea when the new Cessna C310R will land?

Eric
