Sagem Avionics and General Dynamics Aviation Services are partnering on a glass-panel cockpit upgrade for Part 25 jets including the Challenger 600 and 601, Falcon 20 and 50, Gulfstream II and III, and Hawker 700 and 800. The upgrade includes five 10.4-inch-diagonal displays, which comprise a PFD and MFD in front of each pilot and an EICAS display in the center. The Sagem integrated cockpit display system (ICDS) works with the aircraft’s existing digital radar and attitude heading reference system, or buyers can opt for Sagem’s fiber-optic gyros. Sagem Avionics and GDAS’s Dallas facility are installing the first system in a Gulfstream II, and it should receive an STC early next year, the companies said. Once the system is certified, any GDAS facility will be able to install it. The ICDS will cost less than $400,000 installed, according to GDAS.
