Elliott Aviation Offers Hawker Operators Avionics Upgrade Solutions

Moline, IL, September 17, 2013 – Elliott Aviation, a leader in a diverse set of business aviation services, today announced installation of a Honeywell Primus Epic CDS/R Phase V and NZ-2010 WAAS FMS upgrade in a Hawker 800XP. Elliott Aviation will attain the STC for the FMS 6.1 version 03040 with Epic CDS/R and the Legacy SPZ-8000 EFIS. In addition to the Honeywell installations, the aircraft will receive a 48 month inspection, full paint, full interior and structural inspections.

The Honeywell Primus Epic CDS/R display system is a fully integrated avionics suite with optional Jeppesen charts and datalink weather. The system features three 8”x10” 1080 liquid crystal displays with excellent contrast rations that are easy to read even in bright sunlight. The retrofit also reduces the weight of the aircraft an average of 50 pounds. The NZ-2010 6.1 version 03040 fixes anomalies found in previous software and unlocks the full capability to LPV approaches. The combination of Epic CDS/R and NZ-2010 version 03040 prepares these aircraft for NEXGEN requirements.

“As the only Independent Hawker Authorized Service Center East of the Rocky Mountains it is important to offer an avionics solution that is practical and will allow these aircraft to fly indefinitely,” said Mark WIlken, Director of Avionics Sales at Elliott Aviation. “The combination of the Epic CDS/R and NZ-2010 6.1 provides the best solution available for Hawker operators.”

Elliott Aviation will have a Honeywell Primus Epic CDS/R demonstration unit on display at their 2013 NBAA BACE booth number C8143.
