MRO provider C&L Aviation Group is partnering with Universal Avionics (UA) to present a pair of free webinars on upgrades to UA’s legacy flight management systems (FMS) that have reached their capacity for navigation databases, as well as those units that the avionics manufacturer will no longer repair. The webinars, “Support Issues and Solutions for Your Universal Legacy FMS: Answers for Current System Obsolescence and Navigation Database Restrictions,” will be held at 10:30 a.m. ET on July 8 and 3:30 p.m. ET on July 14.
UA announced it would cease repair on UNS 1C, 1C+, 1Csp, 1Csp+, 1D, 1D+, 1K, and 1K+ FMS because of parts obsolescence. Issues related to those systems and available upgrade solutions for them will be the focus of the webinars, which will feature presentations by C&L avionics sales manager Charlie Carroll and UA field service engineer Robert Brownell.
“Not all operators are aware of the support for these systems being phased out,” explained Carroll. “I spent many years working at Universal and am excited to partner with them on this webinar series to help provide answers to those needing to make the switch to WAAS-enabled LPV systems.”
