Chicago Jet Group Kicks-Off Avionics Upgrade For Falcon 50

Utilizes Universal Avionics InSight Display System

Universal Avionics Authorized Dealer Chicago Jet Group has been assigned a FAA Supplemental Type Certification (STC) Number for an InSight Display System flight deck upgrade on a Mystere-Falcon 50 aircraft. The STC covers the installation of the InSight Display System with 4 EFI-1040 Displays, complemented with other additional flight deck enhancements.

“This is the first step in the Falcon 50 InSight program at Chicago Jet Group,” said Mike Mitera, President of Chicago Jet Group. “We are providing the most complete and comprehensive solution on the market,” he added. “The value of this STC is unprecedented. We have created a NextGen solution for the Falcon 50 operators rather than settling for 20-year old technology as an upgrade. We are also working on a solution for Falcon 900 operators.”

“The InSight upgrade offers Falcon 50 and 900 operators with enhanced capabilities such as LPV approaches and Required Navigation Performance,” said Mike Marie, Universal Avionics Central U.S. Regional Sales Manager. “As part of the upgrade, the aircraft will also receive a UniLink UL-801 Communications Management Unit and CVR-120A Cockpit Voice Recorder for FANS and ATN B1 Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications.”

The InSight system is designed as an integrated flight deck solution, featuring embedded: next generation synthetic vision with advanced mapping capability, electronic charts, frequency management, and broadcast weather.

With fewer required external Line Replaceable Units (LRU) for essential functions than the existing avionics systems, InSight reduces weight and wiring in the aircraft. As an integrated system, InSight retains the ability to interface with a large number of federated components such as attitude/heading sensors, air data computers, radars, traffic systems, radios, and autopilots. Lower operating and maintenance costs, enhanced safety, situational awareness, and functionality for pilots are all possible with an InSight upgrade.

In addition, a new Falcon 50 LED Master Warning Panel was designed exclusively for this upgrade with a flashing red master warning and amber master caution, new digital audio control panels, LED glare-shield lighting, and LED back lighting for the overhead panel, as well as ATC Safety Voice Approval. The new Master Warning Panel improves the traditional Falcon 50 instrument panel design by removing the incandescent annunciations and relocating them into the LED Master Warning Panel with an arrangement of annunciations that closely represents the same Master Warning Panel used in the Falcon 50EX. This upgrade will not affect existing TCAS 7.1 or ADS-B upgrades and will not require modification to the existing auto pilot system.
