NextGen and Beyond upgrade gets TCCA and FAA go-ahead
The first Learjet 45 to receive Universal's latest upgrade was delivered to a customer in July 2018, with the second and third aircraft expected for delivery in October 2019 and April 2020.

Universal Avionics authorised dealer Skyservice Business Aviation has received TCCA and FAA approval for STC for its Bombardier Learjet 45 'NextGen and Beyond' upgrade. EASA approval for certification is imminent.

Completed for a corporate customer, the certification covers the addition of a UA UniLink UL-801 Communications Management Unit (CMU) and CVR-120R Cockpit Voice Recorder to the already installed UNS-1Ew SBAS-Flight Management System (FMS). The upgrade offers operators capabilities for current and future mandated technologies including CPDLC, DCL, Data Comm, FANS 1/A+, ATN B1, and LPV/PBN.

“This is yet another breakthrough with one of our top authorised dealers to bring cutting-edge technology to our aftermarket customers,” says UA sales director Robert Clare. “We continue to create, support, and deliver avionics solutions to operators worldwide to enhance their safety and operational efficiencies.”

Skyservice VP of maintenance Paul Weeks adds: “Obtaining TCCA and FAA certification for CPDLC STC (FANS 1/A and ATN B1) for the Bombardier Learjet 45 is another reason why we remain a leading MRO. With the support that we receive from Universal Avionics, we can ensure aircraft operators and owners benefit from this leading-edge technology now and well into the future.”

The first upgraded aircraft was delivered to the customer in July 2018, with the second and third aircraft expected for delivery in October 2019 and April 2020.
