Chorus Aviation subsidiary Canada-based Voyageur Aviation Corp has entered into an agreement with BendixKing to develop a supplemental type certificate for the design installation of the BendixKing AeroVue avionics upgrade for the De Havilland Dash 8-100/200/300 series of aircraft.

With support from BendixKing, Voyageur will use its experience as a global Dash 8 operator, lessor, maintainer and modifier to develop the Dash 8 100/200/300 AeroVue flight deck upgrade. The AeroVue system addresses avionics component obsolescence, fully meets regulatory requirements and provides cost effective operation for years of further operation.

Voyageur's Aerotech division provides specialised regional aircraft MRO and aircraft design engineering services. These activities complement Chorus' full suite of regional aviation support services that encompass every stage of an aircraft's lifecycle.

“The AeroVue system sets new standards of performance, reliability and value for the Dash 8. It is the best option for regional airlines and other operators looking to improve performance, enhance reliability and reduce costs of their Dash 8 fleets,” says Voyageur vice president Jeff Cooke. “At Voyageur we have the experience and the know-how to replace obsolete avionics systems with the modern, efficient AeroVue flight deck with minimum downtime so that operators can get their aircraft back in the air, generating revenue.”

Derived from the Primus Epic and Primus Apex avionics systems, the BendixKing AeroVue integrated flight deck for the Dash 8 offers a flight management system, SmartView Synthetic Vision and INAV functionality with electronic charts displayed on three large twelve inch LCD screens. The STC, which will be developed on Voyageur's Dash 8 aircraft, will be available for installation by Voyageur or to operators as a kit.
