UA mobile unit is off for roadshow
UA continues to closely monitor COVID-19 and is following current guidance by the CDC and local requirements set forth by state or county health departments, as it demos its MDU in socially-distanced settings.

Universal Avionics' immersive mobile demonstration unit (MDU) is now on the road. The company's new demonstration platform brings its products directly to customers, with the first event scheduled next week in Scottsdale, Arizona. Teaming with authorised dealers, integrators and FBOs across the US, UA is hosting live, on-location demonstrations of its avionics solutions in a comfortable, private and socially distanced setting.

The MDU delivers premiere 'on the go' service to customers with no crowds or endless standing lines, providing personalised on-site, one-to-one demonstrations of the latest technologies available for aircraft today. It includes: LPV for improved safety and savings in time and money; EFVS to fly head-up and overcome extreme weather and low visibility; data communications for simplified communications and access to preferred routing; integrated display system to streamline flight deck operations; and interactive Synthetic Vision System (i-SVS) for a 'head-up, head-down' flight deck solution with a gaze-control concept.

“The mobile demonstration unit is further evidence of our continuous drive for innovation,” says Marc Bouliane, UA VP of business development, marketing and services. “Our team reacted swiftly to this year's unfortunate events and developed a fully portable demonstration system. Visitors will be able to experience firsthand our newest products, confident that we are simultaneously ensuring their wellbeing.”

UA continues to closely monitor COVID-19 and the company is following the current guidance set forth by the CDC and any local requirements set forth by state or county health departments. All guests entering the MDU must adhere to UA's safety plan, which includes requirements for facial masks, social distancing and the completion of proper cleaning and disinfection protocols.
