Trimec Aviation, a certified FAA Part 145 repair station, has announced a new FANS/CPDLC/LPV solution for the G200. Trimec has been working alongside Chicago Jet Group to provide a better solution to G200 customers, and has joined forces with Chicago Jet Group to deliver its solution for the FANS Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) with LPV for Gulfstream G200 aircraft.
Trimec will complete the first STC installation in a Gulfstream G200 this week at its Fort Worth Meacham International airport facility in Texas.
The 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.
GM John Holland comments: “Our hard work has paid off, and we are proud to deliver this G200 to our customer as the first with this FANS and CPDLC equipment STC. We look forward to helping more G200 operators with this economical solution, and many thanks to Universal Avionics and the Chicago Jet Group for making this possible.”
