"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,
