Advanced avionics from Tucson-based Universal Avionics are being installed into two Sikorsky S-76B helicopters operated by His Majesty the Sultan of Johor’s Royal Flight. The upgrade includes three EFI-890H advanced flight displays (PFD-MFD-PFD) with Vision-1® synthetic vision system and a UNS-1Fw satellite-based augmentation system-flight management system.
Design, certification and installation will take place at a Universal Avionics authorized dealer in British Columbia.
Universal Avionics’ EFI-890H solution provides the ability to see the projected flight path when coupled with the display of aircraft traffic. This allows the operator to see where the other traffic is in relation to the planned track, and to judge diverging or converging tracks well in advance.
