Universal Avionics has joined forces with the Kansas City Aviation Center to develop a three-screen LCD upgrade for the Pilatus PC-12. The Universal EFI-890R is to be offered as a replacement for the turboprop single’s Bendix/King EFIS 40.

The new unit will include a pair of primary displays and a multifunction display, each measuring 8.9 inches diagonally. Priced at about $300,000, the STC’d modification will provide synthetic vision, e-charts, datalink weather, terrain awareness and warning system and color video.

Flight testing is expected to be completed by the end of June. Kansas City Aviation Center of Olathe, Kansas, will be the STC holder. The upgrade will be available for retrofit to existing PC-12s or for installation in new airplanes before final delivery. Pilatus has declined to comment on whether the Universal displays will be offered as a factory option.
