Gulfstream earns approval on FANS update

Posted 29 March 2016 · Add Comment

Gulfstream has earned U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval to install the Future Air Navigation System (FANS) 1/A+ avionics update on GIV-SP aircraft.

The update uses automation and satellite-based technology to improve aviation communication, surveillance and traffic management, allowing operators to comply with worldwide mandates for efficient routing.
 
“The full functionality of the flight management system is retained. Operators will save time and fuel with access to preferred routing across the North Atlantic Ocean, and training on the system is fast since flight crews are already proficient with the flight management system and control display unit,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Product Support.
 
After January 2020, aircraft without FANS 1/A+ cannot operate in Minimum Navigation Performance Specification airspace.
