First US registered Learjet 45 gains Primus Elite
A Primus Elite upgrade is available from StandardAero on the Learjet 45, Embraer 600, Falcon 900EX and Global Express. The company's first LJ45 installation took place alongside other services to minimise downtime.

StandardAero has completed its first US registered Learjet 45 Honeywell Primus Elite installation at its MRO facility in Augusta Georgia facility, using JetCity's FAA approved STC.

Honeywell's Primus Elite enhanced cockpit system provides greater functionality and overall situational awareness with the addition of charts, maps and safety enhancements for business jet operators. The upgrade removes existing cathode ray tube (CRT) screens alleviating their obsolescence and heat issues. Primus Elite's liquid crystal displays (LCD) provide improved visibility with a modern look and feel.

StandardAero continues to be a leader in cockpit display upgrades and now offers Honeywell's Primus Elite upgrade on the Learjet 45, Embraer 600, Falcon 900EX and Global Express aircraft,” says StandardAero Business Aviation director of avionics programme management and business development Jerry Sanders. “With less focus on meeting the ADS-B mandate, we are seeing more attention on cockpit display and cabin connectivity upgrades.”

This particular installation of Primus Elite is important because it is one of the first Learjet 45 aircraft to have Primus Elite Enhanced features via the FAA STC in the industry and demonstrates the ability to provide continued support and add robust capabilities for Learjet 45 owner/operators. With StandardAero's broad scope of services, Honeywell Primus Elite installations can be accomplished in conjunction with other platform services to minimise total downtime.
