StandardAero continues apace with Falcon installations
Supported with a Dassault Falcon STC, the Pro Line 4 to Pro Line 21 modification removes the aircraft's existing cathode ray tube displays and replaces them with liquid crystal displays. Multiple models are supported.

StandardAero has signed its 40th Collins Aerospace Pro Line 4 to Pro Line 21 modification/upgrade on Falcon 50EX, Falcon 2000 and Falcon 2000EX aircraft. The 40th aircraft is a Falcon 50EX model and is scheduled to be completed at StandardAero's Springfield, Illinois maintenance facility.

Supported with a Dassault Falcon STC, the Pro Line 4 to Pro Line 21 modification removes the aircraft's existing cathode ray tube displays and replaces them with liquid crystal displays. The modification allows for features like LPV, synthetic vision, graphical XM weather and FANS-1/A, giving operators more functionality and situational awareness in the cockpit. The modification also addresses display obsolescence issues that are present with the existing CRT displays.

“We have performed more of these cockpit upgrades than any other MRO provider in the world,” says Brian Campbell, VP of global sales and marketing for StandardAero Business Aviation. “All this experience has given us the ability to provide the highest quality product at a competitive price and faster, minimising aircraft downtime for our customers.”

StandardAero has the capability of performing the Collins Aerospace modification at any of its three business aviation facilities located in Augusta, Georgia; Springfield, Illinois and Houston, Texas.
