The appraiser could not obtain an accurate list of all installed avionics. The aircraft has the typical avionics installed on a 1980’s vintage mid size jet.  There does not appear to be many modern upgrades to the avionics.  Due to the aircraft sitting and unused for so long it is likely that a lot of the equipment will not function properly when powered up.
