Elliott Aviation has applied for an STC for installation of a flat-panel cockpit upgrade for the Cessna Citation 650, the Moline, Ill. installer announced last month. The upgrade replaces electromechanical and CRT-based EFIS flight instruments with a Universal 890R instrument suite featuring eight- by nine-inch displays.

Elliott said the certification aircraft will also receive dual Universal UNS-1L FMS units; Universal class-A TAWS; Universal Vision-1 synthetic-vision system; Universal Cockpit Display electronic flight bag computer with electronic charts, checklist and WSI Nexrad weather; dual radio control units; and Honeywell CAS-67A TCAS II. The airplane will also undergo upgrades including paint, a full interior and additional cabin amenities. The completed aircraft is scheduled to be displayed at the NBAA Convention next month.
