cj3 pro line fusion® upgrades underway at duncan aviation
March 6, 2018
A year after Duncan Aviation delivered the first Citation CJ3 aircraft equipped with the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion® integrated avionics upgrade, the company has seen great demand and is spooling up additional installation locations to make the upgrade even more convenient for customers. The first eight aircraft were completed at Duncan Aviation’s facility in Lincoln, Nebraska. In April, Pro Line Fusion installations will also be in work at Duncan Aviation’s Battle Creek, Michigan, and Provo, Utah, locations. Duncan Aviation has 11 CJ3 upgrades completed or in work with a total of 25 commitments.
Along with being certified WAAS/LPV, the baseline Pro Line Fusion upgrade meets the current 2020 mandate for ADS-B, as well as giving a clearer path for future mandates. The Pro Line Fusion upgrade replaces the factory-installed portrait displays with larger 14.1-inch landscape touchscreen primary flight displays. The new system includes intuitive, touch-interactive maps, and easy-to-use icons, giving the pilot the ability to control items on the screen through touch as well as through two new cursor control panels and a new QWERTY keyboard, which replaces the current FMS CDU mounted in the center pedestal.
“We are proud of how this program has progressed,” says Jeff Simmons, Duncan Aviation Avionics Sales Representative. “Customers are excited about the upgrade and they continue to tell us that they not only love the new flight deck, but they appreciate the experience they have had with Duncan Aviation.”
