Van Nuys, Calif.-based business jet maintenance provider SoCal Jets has added two new dealership agreements, with Universal Avionics and TrueNorth Avionics. Under the Universal Avionics agreement, SoCal Jets is a value-added reseller for the entire Universal product family, and the company also can participate in the avionics manufacturer’s incentive programs and promotions. For TrueNorth, SoCal Jets is a reseller for the Canadian company’s Simphonē OpenCabin airborne telecom products.

The TrueNorth and Universal Avionics agreements should be helpful as SoCal Jets adds ADS-B and FANSsolutions for its customers that need to comply with upcoming NextGen mandates. “Both of these partnerships will allow SoCal Jets to increase support capabilities—both here and in Mexico,” said SoCal Jets CEO and founder Robert Roig. “We are proud to be working closely with both Universal Avionics and TrueNorth Avionics.”

SoCal jets also hold dealerships for Alto Aviation, Avidyne, Flight Display Systems, FreeFlight Systems and Gogo Business Aviation.
