The avionics system selected for the Learjet 31A is a Honeywell avionics suite. This suite includes a Bendix/King KFC 3100 autopilot system, which features automatic climb and descent modes that assist the pilots in the control of the aircraft to allow for increased performance. Five electronic flight information system (EFIS) displays assist the pilots by providing brief summaries of activity. The control board was designed to be intuitive, with systems and their associated instruments and indicators grouped by function. Instrumentation implemented in this avionics suite include dual KDC 481 air data computers, Series III DFS-43 ADFs, a KRA-405 radar altimeter, dual Series III VC-401B VHF transceivers, a DM-441 DME, a Universal Navigation UNS-1 flight management system (FMS), and dual MST 67A Mode S transponders. Additional optional equipment includes high-frequency communication radios, microwave landing system, the Global Wulfsberg GNS-X FMS, a Category II flight director, and a ground proximity warning system (GPWS).
