Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Neb. facility recently became the first avionics shop to receive FAA certification for a Rockwell Collins Pro Line 4 to 21 upgrade in a Dassault Falcon 50EX. The upgrade is part of Duncan’s Glass Box Project series, and the next planned upgrade will be in a Falcon 2000 this year. So far, Duncan has certified 13 upgrades in the Glass Box Project, installing systems manufactured by Honeywell, Rockwell Collins and Universal Avionics in a variety of aircraft. The Pro Line 21 system replaces the Pro Line 4’s original displays with modern LCDs that can show graphical weather and electronic charts. Pro Line 21 is also WAAS-capable and can display data generated by TAWS, radar, TCAS, enhanced vision and Airshow systems. Existing sensors, radios and autopilot are retained. Other aircraft that have received Pro Line upgrades by Duncan include the Falcon 50, Hawker 800A and 800XP and Astra 1125.
