Keep the Line Moving
The ADS-B installation line is forming.
As we draw closer to the January 2020
deadline, let Cobham AvComm,
the test equipment leader that the
aviation industry relies upon, help
keep it moving. Our new ADS-B
INTEGRITYTM Installation Performance
App, together with our GPSG-1000
Positional Simulator and IFR6000 Test
Set, confirms that AC 20-165B high
priority issues (identified by the FAA)
are compliant, before releasing the
aircraft to the owner. This prevents
the FAA "non-compliant" letter to your
customer that results in a return-toservice visit, disrupting your schedule.
Keep the line moving!

Cal Labs Inc. was started in 1975
by Howard Adam, a retired Air
Force meteorologist. A few years
later, it was acquired by Johnny and
Donna Davis, founders of Dallas
Avionics, with the intent to provide
value-added services to his aerospace
customers. Twenty years later, Cal
Labs continues to serve, almost
exclusively, the aviation industry
with repair and calibration of test and
measurement equipment and doing its
part to ensure safe skies.
In the beginning, Cal Labs did a
lot of refurbishing and repairs for
Dallas Avionics back when it was
buying and selling entire avionics
shops. Additionally, for many
years, warranty repairs were done
for the avionics test equipment
manufactured by IFR, and to
this day, Cal Labs is trusted by
many with their avionics test sets.
Initially, Cal Labs only supported
avionics and electronics testers.
But today, it specializes in avionics
test sets, air data test sets and
Cal Labs currently has a roster
of 11 employees, including seven
technicians with a combined
technical experience of 212 years
