Future Air Navigation System (FANS) mandates now require FANS 1/A equipage to access two of the existing NATS Routes to/from Europe. New mandates are going into effect in 2015 that will further define FANS controlled airspace and minimum aircraft equipage. CJG has completed a FANS 1/A retrofit package for the Falcon 50 and has an STC available for upgrade. STC projects are active for Gulfstream GIV, Falcon 900, and other aircraft type and models. This solution will be explained and represents a turn-key combination of UAC, ICG, and Cobham Satcom hardware with CJG installation, engineering flight manual supplements and operational approvals.
