Universal Avionics is helping its sales teams and dealers reach out to customers with a mobile demonstration unit (MDU) that offers live views of its avionics products. The company is bringing the MDU to dealers, integrators, and FBOs in the U.S. and providing a safe, socially distanced setting for the demonstrations, which are held one-on-one. The first took place this week in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The products being shown in the MDU include Universal’s localizer performance with vertical guidance (LPV) capabilities in its flight management systems; the head-worn SkyLens enhanced flight vision system (EFVS); data communications technology for digital communications and FANS datalink, which provides access to preferred routing; Universal’s integrated display systems for flight deck avionics; and interactive synthetic vision system (i-SVS), along with the company’s unique gaze-control concept.
“The mobile demonstration unit is further evidence of Universal Avionics’ continuous drive for innovation,” said Universal Avionics v-p of business development, marketing, and services Marc Bouliane. “Our team reacted swiftly to this year’s unfortunate events and developed a fully portable demonstration system. Visitors will be able to experience firsthand our newest products, confident that we are simultaneously ensuring their wellbeing.”
