Grand Island, NE (AP) - The fixed-base operator at the Grand Island airport is planning a service and product expansion that officials say could land business from the owners of thousands of planes.

The Grand Island Independent says Trego-Dugan Aviation at the Central Nebraska Regional Airport plans to boost the capability of its avionics division to sell and install a new tracking system that uses satellite data links.

Trego-Dugan's Aaron Hall told the Hall County Airport Authority board on Wednesday that the company is partnering with Garmin, Avidyne and FreeFlight to develop the tracking system. The system would help the aircraft owners comply with the federal government's mandate that planes upgrade by 2020 to what's called an automatic dependent surveillance broadcast system.
