Mid-Canada Mod Center has obtained an STC for a complete cockpit upgrade of a Challenger 601-1A with gear from Universal Avionics. The Mississauga, Ontario avionics shop installed four Universal EFI-640 flat-panel flight displays, an MFD-640 multifunction display and terrain awareness and warning system, along with a UNS-1F FMS and handheld Universal Cockpit Display (UCD). The UCD in the Challenger, operated by a U.S.-based corporate flight department, is integrated with the FMS and includes a navigation chart database and airport diagrams, on which a moving aircraft position indicator appears.
