The Supplementary Type Certificate (STC) is based on the Universal Avionics Systems Corporation SBAS Flight Management system and uses the Latitude DL150 SDU as the CPDLC/ADS-C data link. The STC is approved for CPDLC operations using FANS 1/A+ and meets the PCBS requirements for RCP240 and RSP180. The Chicago Jet Group FAA AML STC is EASA approved with Canadian and ANAC approvals expected in the next two months. Specific models under this STC are Falcon 50/50EX/2000/2000EX, Gulfstream G-100/G-II/G-III//G-V and Bombardier Challenger 600/601/604.

The Latitude Satellite Data Unit (SDU) terminals are high performance and it enhances our position by using Latitude’s TSO certified equipment.”
