Pro Star teams with Alto to replace Gulfstream CMS
Pro Star operated a phased system approach, which enabled reduced cost for the operator and downtime for the aircraft. Alto says its Cadence cabin management system replaced an obsolete architecture.

Pro Star Aviation in partnership with Alto Aviation has designed, installed and delivered Alto's Cadence cabin management system on a GIVSP.

The system included a complete In-flight entertainment backbone with supported HD switching and fit compatible switch panels to replace the existing systems. VIP panels, galley master panels and reconfigured seat switch panels were installed. In addition, headphone audio was removed as it is now using Bluetooth.

The phased system approach provides a lower price point with less downtime for the aircraft when compared to a complete CMS installation. This phase retained the existing cabin environmental controls that were functionally stand-alone, including forward and aft lavatory switch panels, vestibule panel, flush, crew refreshment, personal reading and credenza lighting.

“The professional team at Pro Star Aviation provided a top-notch seamless installation of all Alto components, paying close attention to all details,” says Steve Lord, Alto Aviation senior technical sales manager. “This is the second time we have partnered with Pro Star for a successful Cadence CMS installation on a GIV aircraft.”

Jeff Shaw, director of business development adds: “Obsolescence in older aircraft is becoming a problem. Alto's CMS solution offered this GIVSP customer form, fit and function, saving significant time and money by not having to modify the interior, which can be costly.”
