Universal Avionics Selected by Gulfstream
Gulfstream selected Universal Avionics’ cockpit voice recorder with recorder independent power supply (Rips) and flight data recorder as forward-fit, standard equipment on the G450, G550 and G650. With this move, Gulfstream will be the first fixed-wing OEM to be in compliance with an FAA final rule mandating Rips for
certain aircraft. Rips technology provides a backup power source in the event of a main power failure.
