The Hawker 700 has joined the list of business airplanes to benefit from the addition of retrofit Pro Line 21 Continuum avionics from Rockwell Collins. Elliott Aviation of Moline, Ill., performed the first installation of the Continuum cockpit in a Hawker 700, a package that included five FDS-2000 (seven-inch-diagonal) displays, TCAS 4000 and TWR-850 turbulence-detection weather radar. Western Aviation of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and Duncan Aviation of Lincoln, Neb., also hold STCs for the package. The system’s displays, said Collins, can be configured as ADIs, HSIs or MFDs and support terrain, weather radar and TCAS information, as well as FMS maps and other flight-related information on the HSI and MFD. The displays and related hardware replace the electromechanical and iron gyro equipment originally certified in the Hawker 700. Pro Line 21 Continuum has also been certified for installation in the King Air 300, Citation III, Gulfstream II/IIB/III, Challenger 600/601 and Falcon 20 and 50.
