Global Aviation recently installed dual Universal Avionics UNS-1Ew WAAS/SBAS-FMSs in an Astra light jet. This is the first certification approval for the WAAS/SBAS-FMS in an Astra and adds yet another platform for Universal’s WAAS/SBAS-enabled FMSs. The UNS-1Ew installation was approved for 3D-coupled WAAS GPS approaches, including localizer performance with vertical guidance (LPV) procedures.
