A Dassault Falcon 900EX Dassault Falcon Jet (DFJ) recently received a new avionics suite, thanks to StandardAero. The company says it gave a Seattle-based operator’s jet a full Dassault/Honeywell Elite II avionics retrofit.

The Honeywell Primus-2000 flight deck is included in the DFJ Elite II program. It is also forward-looking to include features that should address future worldwide mandates. Completing the work in its Springfield, Illinois, facility, StandardAero provided package upgrades for DU-875 liquid crystal display (LCD) cockpit displays, future air navigation system (FANS) 1/A+ controller-pilot data link communications (CPDLC) and automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) among other upgrades.  

StandardAero was able to deliver the aircraft three days ahead of schedule. Aside from avionics services, the company also provides Dassault Faculon 900 series operators with authorized airframe inspections, completions, paint application, and maintenance, repair and overhaul services.
