Innova Intros King Air Upgrades


Innova Aerospace has two new upgrades available for King Air 90 series aircraft owners, the company announced this week at EAA AirVenture. Those in need of a cockpit overhaul can choose a full avionics retrofit with the AeroVue integrated flight deck by BendixKing. Replacing the old engines with two new GE H80s brings a “significant reduction” in operating costs, Innova says, while also reducing the required maintenance. “Our focus is really on performance enhancement,” Innova spokesman David Meske told AVweb this weekin a podcast interview.

The new engines deliver better performance and easier maintenance, Meske said, and the new all-glass cockpit “gives you everything you could want, and adds value to the airplane.” The modifications are available now for many models, and for all of the fleet by the end of the year, Meske said. The upgrades are on display all this week at EAA AirVenture, with one King Air, with the new engines, displayed near the Textron pavilion, and another one, with the AeroVue flight deck, parked close to BendixKing.
