Southeast develops InSight STC for Hawker 800 series
Southeast Aerospace is currently developing and STC for the Hawker 800 series in collaboration with Universal Avionics for its InSight flight deck. The programme will provide an additional upgrade path for three flight deck variants.

Southeast Aerospace will soon make a new upgrade available for the Hawker 800 series aircraft via STC. It has partnered with Universal Avionics to offer the InSight integrated flight deck. The upgrade will include optional full datacom capability to meet requirements for FANS 1/A and CPDLC.

Southeast's programme will provide an upgrade path for three of the four existing flight deck variants. The two new STCs will allow Hawker 800A, 800B and 800XP aircraft with existing Collins EFIS 85/86, FCS-80 and APS-85 autopilots as well as the Honeywell SPZ-8000 avionics to be upgraded to the InSight integrated flight deck.

It is currently working on the new STC that will encompass the 800A, 800B and 800XP aircraft that have the Collins EFIS 85/86, FCS-80 or APS-85 autopilots. Completion of the STC is expected by Q2, 2022. A second STC is being developed to provide an upgrade path to Universal InSight for the Honeywell SPZ-8000 equipped Hawkers.

“Part of nine STCs in work or already available for installation, the Hawker 800 STC from Southeast Aerospace offers an additional proof of the flexibility afforded by the InSight display system,” says Marc Bouliane, vice president business development, marketing and services at Universal Avionics. “By upgrading with InSight, the flight crew can now take advantage of an intuitive human machine interface with synthetic vision and advanced mapping capabilities, embedded electronic charts, radio control and more. It increases pilot situational awareness, reduces workload by offering a tight integration with Universal's FMS and UniLink data communication for CPDLC, and enables advanced maintenance capabilities with its unique remote diagnostic capability.”
