Atlanta, Ga. – Oct. 18, 2010 – StandardAero announced today that it is teaming with Rockwell Collins on the Pro Line 4 to Pro Line 21 upgrade on the Falcon 50EX. The work performed is for an undisclosed customer and will be completed at StandardAero’s Springfield, Ill. (SPI) facility.
The upgrade offers the latest in cockpit software and product development including WAAS/LPV, Graphical Weather, XM Satellite Weather, Electronic Charts, NTSC Video on the MFD, Enhanced Navigation Maps all with functionality prepared for the future. Lastly, operators who select to do this upgrade receive a two-year new equipment warranty plus a two year CASP warranty on the remaining flight deck avionics.
“We feel that Rockwell Collins and StandardAero working together to develop a new STC for the Pro Line 21 installation in the Falcon 50EX, is a winning combination,” said Scott Taylor, senior vice president, Business Aviation, StandardAero. “Upgrading to the Pro Line 21 platform, which will include WAAS and LPV capabilities, not only will enhance external environment and cockpit awareness, but will make future updates easier to implement and less costly for Falcon 50 owners – as well as F2000 owners.”
The project’s expected delivery is scheduled for early February, 2011.
