Duncan Aviation Installs Universal Cockpit Displays in Falcon 900
October 12, 2004
LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation recently installed new dual Universal Cockpit Displays mounted on folding arm assemblies for cockpit use. The folding arm assemblies allow the displays to be stowed along the flightdeck sidewall. This installation is a preliminary step toward a paperless cockpit. STC certification is expected by mid-October.
“We believe there will be a lot of interest in this system. With the STC, the installation can be accomplished easily during the downtime for an airframe inspection, paint or interior,” said Dave Pleskac, Avionics Installations Sales Representative.
The UCD features a slimline 8” touch-screen cockpit display terminal which provides the crew access to electronic terminal area charts, checklists and more. Jepp charts and associated NOTAMS and airport information can be loaded into the remote-mounted UCD Computer (UCDC) via Universal’s Accessible Data Unit (ADU). Departure and arrival airport information supplied from the Flight Management System will prompt the display of the associated charts. Other features include advanced searches, touch zoom and creation of aircraft-specific procedural checklists. Growth plans for this system include access to maintenance manuals and other reference materials, UniLink and UniVision interfaces, display for external video cameras and overlay of aircraft position on charts.
