Chicago Jet Group (CJG), the premier installation and training facility for Next Generation Satellite Services (NGSS) including CPDLC for FANS 1/A+ and ATN, has received FAA approval of AML STC ST03262-CH for complete FANS 1/A+ system installations that incorporate the Latitude DL150 Satellite Data Unit (SDU) onto 12 additional business jet models.
The STC is based on the Universal Avionics Systems Corporation SBAS Flight Management system and uses the Latitude DL150 SDU as the CPDLC/ADS-C data link. The STC is approved for CPDLC operations using FANS 1/A+ and meets the PCBS requirements for RCP240 and RSP180. The Chicago Jet Group FAA AML STC is EASA approved with Canadian and ANAC approvals expected in the next two months.
Specific models under this STC are Falcon 50/50EX/2000/2000EX, Gulfstream G-100/G-II/G-III//G-V and Bombardier Challenger 600/601/604.
Mike Mitera, president of CJG commented: “The operation of Latitude’s DL150 is unmatched from what we have seen in our experience. This is why we are really pleased to offer this package under our STC. The Latitude Satellite Data Unit (SDU) terminals are high performance and it enhances our position by using Latitude’s TSO certified equipment.”
Ray Larkin, Latitude’s VP of business aviation added, “Chicago Jet Group’s experience in pilot training really gives them an edge. Add this to their ability to attain Letters of Authorization (LOA) for flight operations makes them a true one-stop location offering complete solutions.”
Kevin Hufford, a CJG installation manager, commented: “In addition to this Aircraft Model List STC, we have processed and added the Falcon 900/900B, Gulfstream G-IV, and Boeing 767-200 and expect those final approvals will be granted in the next 2 to 3 weeks.”
