Trimec wraps up first Falcon 2000/EX InSight upgrade
The CDUs and FMS for the Pro Line 4 are irreplaceable and no longer supported, so this STC is a timely solution. The InSight Display System upgrades operational capabilities and increases Falcon 2000/EX longevity.
Trimec has completed the first Falcon 2000/EX STC with Universal's InSight flight display system.

Trimec Aviation, a certified FAA Part 145 repair station based at Fort Worth Meacham International airport in Texas, has completed the first Falcon 2000/EX aircraft supplemental type certificate (STC) with Universal Avionic's InSight flight display system. The newly installed system replaces the Pro Line 4 and includes SBAS-flight management systems, Universal's connectivity ecosystem and UniLink communications management system, which supports RNP 0.3 instrument approaches and CPDLC, digital clearances, FANS 1A+ and ATN B1.

Mike Rabadi, Trimec president and CEO, says: “We are proud of our Fort Worth technical team for making this possible and look forward to welcoming other Falcon 2000/EX operators looking for a solution for their ageing and obsolete avionics. This upgrade will not only increase the value of their asset but improve operating efficiency, enhance pilot safety and increase the aircraft's available payload.”

General manager John Holland adds: “It's exciting to reach the final stage of this important STC for Falcon 2000/EX operators. The CDUs and FMS for the Pro Line 4 are irreplaceable and are no longer supported, so this is a timely solution that Trimec is ready to provide. ”

Dror Yahav, Universal Avionics CEO, says: “We are thrilled to deliver a modern, sustainable solution for the Falcon 2000/EX in partnership with Trimec Aviation. The InSight Display System has achieved certification on a variety of business jets, upgrading them to the latest available operational capabilities and significantly extending the aircraft's longevity for years to come.”

Trimec Aviation was recognised as an Outstanding Dealer of the Year for 2022 by Universal Avionics and continues to build on its foundation as an innovative avionics solution provider with this new STC.
