Chicago Jet ProLink STC’d in G200

Latitude Technologies’ DL-150 satellite data unit has been selected as a core connectivity element in Chicago Jet Group’s (CJG) recently approved NextGen ProLink STC upgrade for Gulfstream G200s equipped with Collins Pro Line 4 avionics. ProLink enables the G200 to meet requirements for FANS 1/A+ controller-pilot datalink communications (CPDLC) and European ATN B1, including CPDLC digital clearances and push-to-load messaging required for U.S. en route CPDLC operations. Also added are LNAV, LNAV/VNAV, LPV, and LP instrument approach capabilities, and the upgrade enables ACARS and VHF VDL Mode 2 and Iridium datalink.

The G200 STC includes dual U1808 ProLinks, plus dual Universal Avionics SBAS FMSs and control display units, flight deck voice recorder, UniLink communications management unit, solid-state data recorder, and DL-150 Iridium datalink. The NextGen ProLink package paves the way for an eventual Universal Avionics InSight display system avionics suite upgrade.

“[This] is the first in a series of STCs, which remove Collins Pro Line 4 or Pro Line 21 equipment and upgrade to a full integrated suite of Universal Avionics components,” said CJG president Mike Mitera.

Installations are available from Trimec Aviation in Fort Worth, Texas.
