MRO provider Trimec Aviation is now offering a Universal Avionics-based FANS/CPDLC/LPV solution called NextGen ProLink for the Gulfstream G200. Chicago Jet Group (CJG) developed the new STC and Trimec serves as its installation partner.
CJG’s NextGen ProLink is a complete Collins Aerospace Proline 4 Dual Integrated FMS upgrade for legacy integrated navigation systems. With Universal Avionics as the base avionics, NextGen ProLink offers CPDLC-DCL, CPDLC-Enroute, FANS 1/A+, and European ATN B1 (formerly Link 2000+). With the ProLink upgrade, operators also gain LPV approach capability and CPDLC push-to-load capability, which is required by the FAA for use in the U.S. Trimec completed an installation at its facility at Fort Worth Meacham International Airport in Texas last week. Installation of the system takes 15 business days.
“We are always looking for ways to help our customers, and this package with the Universal Avionics components will provide an economical alternative for G200 operators that are now looking to upgrade to FANS,” said Trimec general manager John Holland.
