Falcon 50 Sees First Avidyne Atlas Install

Dual GPS FMS Suites Still Popular

Avidyne Corporation has shown off a retrofit for the Falcon 50 boasting a dual Atlas FMS, offering coupled GPS approach capabilities without the aged Collins ProLine suite.

Avidyne says their Atlas Flight Management System offers everything an operator could want on deck, like 3d Synthetic Vision, Electronic Approach Charting, and GPS support for LPV, LP, LNAV, VNAV, and LNAV-only approaches. The first installation of the suite on a Falcon 50 took place by field approval in Brazil by way of SAB Aviaçâo. At a retail price of $30,900 a piece, each Atlas frees up some cost for those fearfully watching their old ProLine systems slowly flickering themselves to death on powerup.

“The dual Atlas FMS configuration is a terrific retrofit option for the Falcon 50,” said Ed Paulsen, Avidyne’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development. “Atlas gives new life to these highly-capable airframes without the high cost of a full flight deck replacement, adding a whole host of new capabilities—most importantly opening up hundreds of airports and runway ends with GPS-based LPV Approaches.”

“Avidyne would like to extend our appreciation to Mario Alencar and the team of SAB Aviaçâo, for initiating and completing this installation and approval,” said Juan Blaha, Avidyne’s Sales Director for Latin America. “The fully integrated dual ATLAS FMS/GPS/NAV/COM systems replaced several legacy remote boxes in the Falcon 50, clearing avionics bay space and increasing useful load, while extending the utility and capabilities of the aircraft.”
