TEMPE, Arizona, — Landmark Aviation today announced that it has received Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval for the installation of the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 IDS Integrated Display System on Dassault Falcon 50 aircraft.
“The Pro Line 21 IDS provides pilots with greater situational awareness, which enhances safety,” said Gary Bosemer, Avionics and Airframe Sales Manager for Landmark Aviation. “This system integrates additional information on the flight deck in large format flat panel displays that offer numerous operational enhancements, such as graphical weather, electronic charts and maps, and flight management system overlays.”
The system provides increased reliability, reduced weight and can reduce the cost of ownership by allowing operators to retain existing equipment, including the autopilot, flight director computers, flight management system (FMS), communication, navigation and distance measuring equipment, transponders, and attitude/heading gyros.
The Pro Line 21 IDS upgrade for the Falcon 50 can be configured with three or four 8-inch-by-10-inch active matrix liquid crystal displays and includes Rockwell Collins Integrated Flight Information System (IFIS), enabling electronic charts, graphical weather and map overlays. Options such as, Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS), Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) can be easily added.
“The system is designed to be a long-term solution and is positioned for growth into future capabilities such as (CNS/ATM) Communication, Navigation, Surveillance and Air Traffic Management,” Bosemer said.
FAA certification was completed by Landmark Aviation’s FAA Designated Alteration Station (DAS). Work will be performed at Landmark Aviation’s Springfield, Ill., maintenance, repair and overhaul center, a full-service aircraft center.
In addition to IDS upgrades, Landmark Aviation also offers the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 retrofit solution, a major retrofit that includes a new autopilot and integrated FMS for the Dassault Falcon 50.
