Upgrading to Pro Line Fusion eliminates the need to maintain your aging Pro Line 21™ avionics system. Repairing the MFD in your current system could cost as much as $50,000, and a replacement could cost as much as $150,000. Adding a feature like WAAS/LPV to your current Pro Line 21 avionics could cost $150,000 or more.

Select Pro Line Fusion Features In-Depth
Synthetic Vision (SVS)
Synthetic vision allows you to get a clear picture of your surroundings regardless of the weather or time of day. It includes terrain and other obstacles as well as a flight path vector. With an additional SVS database, you can also stay oriented with your runway.
Upgraded Flight Management System (FMS)
Upgrading to Pro Line Fusion for the CJ1+, 2+, or 3 provides the latest FMS technology. Using GPS as the primary means of navigation provides more direct routing and enables LPV approaches to get you into more airports. It also shares takeoff and arrival data with IFIS and SVS automatically.
Integrated EFB (IFIS)
The integrated EFB shares flight plan information between the IFIS and FMS automatically, significantly increasing situational awareness and decreasing workload. This feature allows for overlaying your flight plan on graphical weather, automated chart selection, aircraft positioning on charts, and more. The integrated EFB allows for:
- Airport charts
- XM WX Satellite Weather®
- Chart link
- Enhanced maps with intersections and airways
- Geographical boundaries
High-Frequency (HF) Radio (optional)
This option provides your aircraft with worldwide communication capabilities. Tuned directly from the Pro Line Fusion system, the HF system allows tuning of over 280,000 frequencies. When operated in discrete frequency mode, it has USB, UD, CW, LSB, LD, and AM equivalent operation. There are 99 channels that can all be programmed by the user in any mode.
