Landmark Aviation last month received STC approval to install Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line 21 IDS integrated display system in the Falcon 50. Developed as a replacement for older analog instrumentation, the screen swap brings added capabilities to the airplane for display of graphical weather, electronic charts and maps and flight management system overlays. The beauty of the system is that it provides a modern cockpit while allowing operators to retain existing equipment, including the autopilot, flight director computers, FMS, radios, transponders and gyros. The Pro Line 21 IDS upgrade for the Falcon 50 can be configured with three or four 8- by 10-inch active matrix liquid crystal displays and includes Rockwell Collins integrated flight information system for accessing electronic charts, graphical weather and map overlays. Options include attitude heading reference system and TCAS.
