Pentastar granted Canadian STC for Honeywell DU-875
The DU-875 is a form-fit plug-n-play LCD upgrade that overcomes the upcoming obsolescence of the CRT DU-870 displays found in older aircraft. Pentastar's STC eliminates the need for modifications to the cockpit.

Pentastar Aviation, an authorised Honeywell dealer headquartered at Oakland County International airport in Pontiac, Michigan, has been awarded a Transport Canada STC for the installation of Honeywell's DU-875 LCD flight deck display upgrade. The STC, issued in accordance with an FAA STC, includes Global, Challenger, Falcon, Learjet 45 and Citation airframes.

The DU-875 is a form-fit plug-n-play LCD upgrade that overcomes the upcoming obsolescence of the CRT DU-870 displays found in older aircraft. Pentastar's STC eliminates the need for modifications to the cockpit and requires no changes to the existing aircraft wiring or additional pilot training, ensuring limited aircraft downtime.

“The DU-875 is a low-risk upgrade increasing display reliability, resolving obsolescence issues and contributing to reduced cost of ownership,” says avionics manager Eric McFalda. “This upgrade provides an entirely new avionics system with enhanced flight management tools, future growth capability, improved reliability and reduced weight.”

The FAA and TCCA certification of these aircraft by Pentastar's team will benefit aircraft owners, as the LCD display is significantly lighter than the older display, providing weight reduction and fuel savings. Aircraft owners can replace the LCD display units individually or as a complete suite.
