New developments and products in avionics, specifically about aircraft electronics in the cockpit.
Gulf Air is now using Jeppesen’s FliteDeck Pro electronic flight bags.
Integration of FMS and Fans resulted from a partnership between Gulfstream and Honeywell.
The upgrade, which is FAA approved, includes ADS-B OUT, Fans 1/A and LPV.
The FAA will allow aircraft owners and operators to delay installation of a rule-compliant GPS/GNSS sensor to meet ADS-B Out equipage requirements.
The idea is to be able to show aircraft owners in one place all the options for avionics upgrades, including the option of quality used avionics.
The installation can be done as a minor alteration.
The company plans to offer ADS-B STCs for a number of older business jets.
Business aviation operators can be flying with Gogo Biz 4G in 2017.
The STC also covers ADS-C and CPDLC.
The company is pursuing STCs for the Citation, Hawker, Falcon and Dash 8.
