Beech King air Upgrade and Integration
When publicly showing our work to owners and operators, there’s a strong case for panel pictures, and lots of them. However, while theses are often very nice to look at, without context they have the potential to mislead. A photo of some GPS/NAV/COMs and a primary flight display tell you very little about what is lurking behind the panel or how that equipment is integrated and configured.

Pilatus PC-12 at the “One Stop Shop”
One of the best things about Maxcraft Avionics is its ability to provide a one-stop solution for maintenance and upgrades that extend well beyond the realm of avionics. By partnering and coordinating with maintenance organizations like Port Aircraft interiors and Upper Valley Aviation, Maxcraft can provide a comprehensive upgrade that covers Avionics, Paint, and Interiors.

Beechcraft Duke Full Glass Upgrade
A Beechcraft Duke is one of the nicest pressurized turbo twins around. Coincidentally, what you’re looking at here is one of nicest panels that the Maxcraft team has ever put together for a GA aircraft. At the behest of our clients, special care was put into the symmetry of the layout. This, combined with the complete removal of all vacuum gyros and round dials results in an exceptionally uncluttered and efficient presentation of information.

Cessna 340 with dual GTN’s and Layout tweaks

Aerostar G600 and GTN750
This project features the Piper Aerostar, an aircraft most famous for being the fastest piston twin available. Until you enter turboprops into the equation, there is nothing faster. While the Garmin G600 and GTN750 you see here are certainly top of the line pieces of equipment, what makes this project interesting is the high level of integration between new and old systems.

de Havilland “Boss” Beaver
When this 1950s vintage de Havilland “Boss” Beaver showed up in our hangar with its turboprop conversion, it was already and halfway towards being the most advanced Beaver around. With a new avionics suite and entertainment system, Maxcraft’s technicians took it all the rest of the way.

Cessna 340 with PFD and Autopilot Integration
