Premier Air Center has received an
STC to install the Universal Avionics EFI-890R Flat Panel for all
models of Dassault Falcon 20 Aircraft. The new Falcon 20 STC is
certified under FAA Part 25 for approach and landing.
The Universal EFI-890R Electronic Flight Instrument effectively
modernizes the Falcon 20 flight deck by offering advanced,
large-format 8.9-inch diagonal Active Matrix Liquid Crystal
Displays (AMLCD) for Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Navigation
Display (ND) and is available in 3 or 4 tube suites.
"This is the first flat panel system built for existing flight
decks," stated Lamont Durante, Director Avionics Sales and
Programs. "It integrates with most existing systems including the
autopilot radar, TAWS and FMS. Other systems require
replacement of the autopilot in certain instances."
This new certification package
includes for the first time ever, Universal Avionics' Vision-1
Synthetic Vision System. Vision-1 enhances pilot situational
awareness by providing an advanced dynamic terrain image integrated
with the flight plan and projected flight path of the aircraft.
Vision-1 allows the pilot to "see" the terrain ahead in 3-D while
monitoring flight instruments.
The STC is the first step in a focused push in avionics
capability for the East Alton (KALN) based FBO. Immediate next
steps include certifying the EFI-890R for the Falcon 50 and the
Citation 650. Premier Air Center is a FAA-certified Class I, II and
III Avionics Repair Station (CRS #PAZROCSH) and is Factory
Authorized by Universal, Honeywell, Collins Garmin and many others.
The company is also a Factory Authorized installation center for
Cessna RVSM Service Bulletin and has an on-site FAA Systems
