Our goal is to offer a modern, efficient and highly reliable upgrade path for these aircraft. The Insight integrated flight deck upgrade, in conjunction with other modernisations like the Kapture CVR with RIPS and the PS Engineering PAC 45L audio system, empowers operators with the latest in avionics technology, significantly enhancing safety and operational efficiency," says Luke Gomoll, SEA aircraft modifications sales representative.
