Universal Avionics is providing avionics for two Sikorsky S-76B helicopters operated by His Majesty the Sultan of Johor’s Royal Flight. The upgraded glass cockpit includes the installation of three EFI-890H Advanced Flight Displays (PFD-MFD-PFD) with Vision-1 Synthetic Vision System (SVS) and a UNS-1Fw Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS)-Flight Management System (FMS). The Universal Avionics upgrade features the latest in avionics technologies – technologies which are often not available on new aircraft.
Design, certification and installation will take place at Universal Avionics Authorized Dealer, Heli-One Canada, in Delta, British Columbia. Induction is expected in July 2016.
“This will be a stunning transformation of these helicopters for His Royal Highness,” said Norm Matheis, Universal Avionics Regional nales manager for Canada. “This package really is the perfect fit to future-proof VVIP and special missions S-76s.”
