TUSCON, AZ – Universal Avionics Systems Corp. and Haggan Aviation announce the receipt of an STC for Universal Avionics WAAS/SBAS Flight Management Systems in the Learjet 60. Haggan Aviation, based out of Englewood, CO, completed the installation of dual UNS-1Fw SBAS/WAAS-FMSs in the Learjet 60 and holds the STC.
The STC includes approval for 3-D coupled WAAS GPS approach types, including Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) procedures. These approaches require the use of GPS signals broadcast from the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), which include signal correction that significantly improve position accuracy and reliability. Operators of aircraft equipped was WAAS-enabled avionics can take advantage of lower descent minima, greater airport options and improved safety in poor weather conditions. In this installation, Universal’s WAAS/SBAS-capable UNS-1Fws replaced earlier generation UNS-1B+s.
"We are very impressed with the dedication and tenacity Haggan demonstrated throughout this installation. Bringing new technology to our marketplace requires close teamwork between the installation center and avionics supplier in order to ensure a successful outcome," says Dan Reida, Vice President of Marketing. "We believe this will prove a very successful platform for Haggan, while making WAAS capability available to the 300+ aircraft in the Lear 60 fleet."
