KBFS is a recognized leader in Central Texas for installing avionics, radios, and navigation in rotary and fixed wing aircraft for General Aviation Owners and flight academies operated by private industry, technical schools, and other institutions of higher learning. KBFS has excellent relationships with several highly rated manufacturers and vendors that sell state-of-the art radios, GPS navigation, flight instruments, and the Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast (ADS-B). Aircraft owners must have the ADS-B installed by January 2020 on all aircraft operating in the national air route structure and otherwise controlled airspace. Because of these relationships, our customers often qualify for significant discounts on equipment purchases and installation.
