CMC’s PilotView Approved in Gulfstreams, Falcons and Globals
Pentastar Aviation in Waterford, Mich., has gained STC approval for dual installations of CMC Electronics’ PilotView electronic flight bag (EFB) portable computers in the Gulfstream G100/150, GII/III/IV/V/V-SP and Dassault Falcon 2000/2000EX. The approval also includes the Westwind, Astra and Astra SPX.
The STC covers a yoke-mounted EFB setup that lets operators display Jeppesen nav charts and graphical weather. CMC’s PilotView EFB enables preflight planning and access to aircraft documentation, checklists and flight-planning information. Display of electronic charts, moving map, enhanced-vision camera views and graphical real-time weather information are among the unit’s capabilities.
CMC also announced that Lufthansa Bombardier Aircraft Services (LBAS) of Berlin has installed PilotView in a Global Express. The installation used an STC that LBAS purchased from ABC Completions of Montreal. It covers a side-mounted EFB solution, letting Global Express operators display the Jeppesen charts or use the PilotView unit as an alternative display for enhanced vision.
