Pentastar Aviation recently completed its first Honeywell DU-875 flight deck display upgrade on a Bombardier Global Express. The company received an STC for the upgrade on Global Express airframes last year and has since added the Cessna Citation 550, 560, 560XL, and 750, as well as the Dassault Falcon 900/900EX and Bombardier Learjet 45 series to the approved model list.

“The Global Express landed at our facility, had all six monitors upgraded to the DU-875, and was back in the air in less than three hours,” said Jesse Beard, director of engineering and inside sales for Pentastar Aviation. “The upgrade has higher display reliability and a growth path to future technologies which was in line with the customer’s requirements.”

The Honeywell DU-875 flight deck display upgrade is a form-fit plug-and-play LCD upgrade that improves display reliability and offers a growth plan to Primus Elite with advanced features, including synthetic vision system (SVS), on multiple platforms via additional software and hardware upgrades. Honeywell is currently offering a $40,000 trade-in incentive per-display replacement.
