JETTECH Develops Digital Engine Display Install for Citation Legacy Aircraft (500/501/550/551/S550/560)

March 13, 2014, AEA Convention, Nashville, TN … JETTECH, a leader in developing affordable aftermarket aircraft solutions, has teamed with Ultra Electronics Flightline Systems to develop a new, direct replacement, Digital Engine Display specifically for Cessna Citation 500/501/550/551/S550/560 series aircraft.

Pending FAA approval of its Supplemental Type Certificate (STC), JETTECH will begin offering kits available through JETTECH approved FAA Certified Repair Stations.

In making the announcement, Rob Irwin, founder and member/manager of JETTECH, said the new one-piece unit offers the obvious benefit of digital technology and an enhanced display. It will offer digital fuel consumption reporting by connecting to existing GPS systems to give real time fuel consumption and accurate time remaining. In addition to those features, it will also automatically target fan speed for existing conditions.

The display is designed to replace the existing analog vertical tape gauges, utilizing the existing connectors and the same mounting fasteners. Installation will require minimum down time, with only minor system integrations interfacing.

Other features include:

  • Level “B” Software
  • Field upgradeable software
  • Monitoring and recording of all engine functionality
  • Fuel computer functions
  • Reversionary Mode
