MRO provider West Star Aviation recently assisted Collins Aerospace in completing an STC for a Pro Line Fusion avionics upgrade for the Cessna Citation CJ1+. As a result, Fusion is now an upgrade option for the CJ1+, CJ2+, and CJ3.

Fusion comprises three touchscreen displays with synthetic vision, weather, navigation, flight plan, and other graphical overlays that provide enhanced situational awareness in most flight conditions.

The Fusion upgrade was completed on astronaut Charlie Precourt’s CJ1+ at West Star’s Grand Junction, Colorado facility. STC development and flight testing were performed by Collins, while West Star supported Collins’s engineering and completed the aircraft modifications.

“We are thrilled to be chosen by both Collins and Mr. Precourt to be involved with the development of the Fusion upgrade and the opportunity to create a higher value to our CJ customers,” said West Star avionics technical sales manager Walt Marcy.
