West Star Aviation has received FAA approval for a Learjet 60 Future Air Navigation Systems STC. West Star teamed with Universal Avionics and TrueNorth Avionics on the project, which consists of a Universal Avionics UniLink UL-801 communications management unit, cockpit voice recorder and TrueNorth's FAA C195a TSO'd datalink unit.
The systems provide Learjet 60 operators access to North Atlantic Tracks for more efficient routing to Europe. West Star Aviation holds an STC to install Universal Avionics SBASflight management systems for localizer performance with vertical guidance (LPV) operation and will be able to provide a solution for ADS-B compliance.
Installation downtime varies depending upon the work scope. For instance, if LPV has been previously accomplished, then downtime is reduced. These avionics modifications can be done in conjunction with other repair services to reduce overall in-shop time, it said.
