Contact Aviation has completed the installation of a dual L3 Aviation Products Lynx 9000 ADS-B Out/In system in a Lear 31A.

The L3 Aviation Products Lynx 9000 is a fully self contained ADS-B solution that includes an internal WAAS/SBAS GPS receiver, a Mode A/C/S ES transponder and a Multi Function Display (MFD). For more information on the Lynx 9000 please visit

This modification was performed by Contact Aviation at our customer’s base of operations during a maintenance event that was being performed by the aircraft operator.

Representatives from L3 Aviation Products, the manufacturer of the Lynx 9000, told Contact Aviation this was the first Lynx 9000 system installation approved for installation in a FAR part 25 aircraft.

The Lear 31A was equipped with TCAS I which made it a perfect candidate for the Lynx 9000 transponder/ADS-B system installation. The Lynx 9000 system is not compatible with TCAS II.

Contact Aviation now has a FAA approved path to perform the installation of the Lynx 900 in any FAR part 25 aircraft that is not TCAS II equipped.

This modification is perhaps the least costly ADS-B solution for any part 25 aircraft.
