Dassault Aviation has introduced a new avionics upgrade that will provide Falcon 900A and B operators with a range of important operational benefits, including an enhanced air traffic management capability and more reliable, cost-effective component offerings.
Known as “Falcon Select II”, the upgrade will enable operators to take advantage of next-generation ATM features such as ADS-B Out, FANS 1/A, and LPV offered on newer Dassault EASy-equipped aircraft models. It will also allow them to replace existing Cathode Ray Tube Flight displays with more powerful and reliable LCD displays designed to support electronic moving maps, electronic charts, XM weather maps and other advanced new cockpit features.
The package is similar to the Falcon Elite II offering introduced in 2013 for Falcon 900C and 900EX operators.
“With Falcon Select II, a large portion of our older fleet can now take advantage of Next-Gen technologies, which enhance situational awareness and operational capabilities,” said Jacques Chauvet, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Customer Service. “And it contributes to increase the aircraft value on the pre-owned market where Falcons are known to depreciate slower than their competitors. “
Falcon Select II can be installed as a package or a la carte, in accordance with individual Falcon operator operational needs and maintenance schedules. The installation can be performed by any Dassault Aircraft Services (DAS) facility, as well as by most Falcon Authorized Service Centers (ASCs). FAA Approval has already been achieved with EASA approval expected in Q1 of 2016.
