Victoria, British Columbia-based Chicago Jet Group (CJG, Booth 3378) has selected the Latitude DL150 Satellite Data Unit (SDU) as part of its new upgrade package, known as “NextGen ProLink,” for aircraft equipped with Pro Line 4 avionics that need to meet the upcoming FANS 1/A+ and ATN B1 European Link 2000+ mandates.

The direct upgrade, replacing the legacy FMS and GPS, meets compliance requirements for worldwide operation of the Gulfstream G200, Dassault Falcon 50/50EX, and Falcon 2000/2000EX. CJG described it as “the most effective upgrade path for classic Dassault Falcon aircraft models, as well as the Gulfstream G200.”

It comprises the Universal Avionics SBAS FMS with GPS supporting RNP-4 (Required Navigation Performance). It has UL-80x CMU/VDL Mode 2 for CPDLC, the DL150 satellite data unit, which includes North Atlantic Track (NAT) requirements, and Universal CVR 120A to record digital messages between ATC and the crew.

“Chicago Jet Group set a high bar in the industry offering affordable upgrade packages that cover a wide range of corporate aircraft," said Ray Larkin, vice president of Latitude Technologies Corp. (Booth 3808).

CJG has previously incorporated the Latitude DL150 SDU in STCs for various Dassault, Gulfstream, Bombardier, and Boeing business jets.
