Field Aviation Sells First Dash 8 Flight Deck Modernization

Field Aviation has signed a significant contract with Air Iceland for the modernization of flight decks on two “classic” series Bombardier Dash 8 Q200 aircraft. The announcement comes just six weeks after Field Aviation completed its first major flight deck modernization on a Dash 8 Q300 maritime surveillance aircraft belonging to the Icelandic Coast Guard, and marks the company’s first sale to a commercial Dash 8 operator. Field Aviation’s upgrade package features five Universal Avionics EFI-890R large format flat panel high definition displays with dual Vision-1 Synthetic Vision Systems as the center point of its flight deck modernization program. As part of this upgrade, more than forty existing mechanical instruments will be replaced in Air Iceland’s instrument panel and center pedestal alone, from their two recently acquired electro-mechanical equipped Dash 8 Q200s.  Aside from the new displays, this modernization program also includes a Primus 880 Weather Radar, Universal Avionics Dual UNS-1EW Flight Management System and Dual Radio Control Units.
