The avionics team has been busy working on a variety of aircraft, here’s a few of their latest projects:
- Falcon 900EX – The team installed an Aircell High Speed Data (HSD) system on a Falcon 900 EX and also on a Challenger 604. This installation enables passengers the use of internet, e-mail and other connectivity services while on board the aircraft.
- Boeing 727 – Upgrade is for Mode “S” Enhanced Surveillance which is required in European airspace. The work was performed on location in Jacksonville when the aircraft was down for a maintenance inspection.
- Eurocopter 120 – The team installed a Traffic Advisory System (TAS) which allows the helicopter to see other traffic in the area to avoid a collision. The work was performed at our partner’s facility, Edwards Rotorcraft Solutions (ERS).
