Just Flight’s Duchess Model 76 has progressed tremendously since our last set of development previews. In a Facebook post, Just Flight has previewed the aircraft featuring some third-party avionics along with some of their own custom avionics.
The Duchess 76 will feature integration for the Flight1 GNS 430/530 and GTN 750/650, providing alternatives to the default GNS 430 avionics fit. It is also fitted with a KX165 COM2/NAV2, KR87 ADF, Century IV autopilot and stormscope.
