Trimec and CJG to kit out G200 with ProLink
Chicago Jet Group has CPDLC FANS 1/A+ STC for numerous other business jets and expects to attain the ProLink STC for the G200 in the coming weeks. Trimec is looking forward to working with CJG on installations.

Fort Worth, Texas-based Trimec Aviation has joined forces with Chicago Jet Group, a Chicago/Aurora Municipal airport Part 145 repair station, to deliver its nextgen ProLink solution for the Future Navigation System (FANS) Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) for the Gulfstream G200 aircraft.

Chicago Jet Group has CPDLC FANS 1/A+ STC for numerous other business jets and expects to attain the ProLink STC for the G200 in the coming weeks.

John Holland, Trimec Aviation's general manager, says: “We are excited to be working closely with Mike Mitera and the great team at Chicago Jet Group on this achievement as our relationship goes back many years. We are always looking for ways to help our customers and this package with the Universal Avionics components provides additional CPDLC features as well as an economic alternative for the G200 operators that are now looking to upgrade to FANS.”

“This is a culmination of a lot of hard work, and we are grateful for John and the Trimec team's support and expertise along the way,” adds Mike Mitera, president of CJG. “Now we look forward to G200 installations both in Fort Worth and here in Chicago while providing a considerable return on investment to these G200 operators.”

Nextgen ProLink is the first complete Proline 4 Dual Integrated FMS upgrade for legacy integrated navigation systems. Universal Avionics provides the foundation avionics components to equip and certify aircraft for Controller-Pilot Data Link including CPDLC-DCL, CPDLC-Enroute, FANS 1/A+, and European ATN B1 (formerly Link 2000+). ProLink customers also gain LPV approach capability as well as CPDLC ‘Push-to-Load’ capability required by the FAA for US domestic use.
