Universal Avionics, of Tucson, Ariz., and its marketing alliance partner DAC International will provide glass cockpit upgrades to a fleet of British Aerospace (BAe) ATP aircraft operated by West Atlantic. West Atlantic operate 41 BAe ATP aircraft. The installation and certification, which will be completed by a partnership between West Atlantic and Scandinavian Avionics, will include a five-panel suite of Universal’s EFI-890R Flat Panel displays and Vision-1 Synthetic Vision System (SVS). EASA approval is expected early 2010, Universal said. The installation of the EFI-890R integrated displays will replace the aircraft’s existing EFIS system. Universal said its navigation display will support the high-resolution graphic output of the aircraft’s existing Universal Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) and the new Vision-1 SVS. The upgrade will also feature an Engine Interface Unit and center engine display that will replace older electromechanical indicators.
