FAA approves C&L STC for Embraer 135/145 FMS upgrade
C&L is the largest ERJ 135/145 semi-private upgrade and modification service centre in the world. It has now received STC certification from the FAA for the Embraer 135/145 Universal FMS upgrade.
C&L is the largest ERJ 135/145 semi-private upgrade and modification service center in the world.

Bangor, Maine-based C&L Aviation Services has received STC certification by the FAA for its upgrade of the Universal Avionics UNS-1K (SCN600 or SCN800) series flight management system (FMS) to the UNS-1LW (SCN1000-series) WAAS enabled unit for the Embraer 135/145 aircraft. EASA and UK CAA approval is pending and expected to be completed by spring.

“We have invested heavily in the success of this aircraft, and having a viable option for operators to upgrade their FMS systems as these systems continue to evolve is an important piece of that,” says avionics sales manager Charlie Carroll. “Having our own in-house engineering group allows us to dedicate resources to STC projects like this one, that meets customers' needs.”

C&L has been modifying and upgrading the interiors and systems on ERJs for several years and specialises in converting these aircraft into business-class and luxury jets. C&L also provides on-site engineering, avionics support, aircraft exterior painting and heavy maintenance services. The company carries a large inventory of ERJ parts in its warehouse, which helps to reduce maintenance times associated with these types of projects. Currently, the company is developing several other ERJ upgrades including a new first-class seat design.
