Phoenix Rising Aviation and Global Jet Partners select new flight display system from Universal Avionics

Feb. 7, 2024

BARTLESVILLE, Okla., - Phoenix Rising Aviation in Bartlesville, Okla., and Global Jet Partners in Scottsdale, Ariz. sought to upgrade flight displays for the company's Dassault Falcon aircraft. They found their solution from Universal Avionics in Tucson, Ariz.

Universal Avionics InSight Flight Display System was selected to replace the existing technology in a Falcon 900B. Phoenix Rising Aviation performed the installation together with major “C” check maintenance. The InSight installation in a Falcon 900B is based on the Supplemental Type Certificate certified by Chicago Jet Group. 

InSight replaces outdated avionics with an integrated flight deck solution including four high-resolution displays and two touchscreen-enabled control displays while increasing available payload and improving reliability. Its 3D synthetic vision system and associated digital maps, combined with advanced safety features for traffic, weather, and terrain, enhance situational awareness.

The InSight flight display system integrates with existing aircraft systems and includes the latest Universal flight management systems (FMS) and UniLink data communications management, enabling FANS 1/A+, CPDLC, and ATN B1 capabilities. Operational efficiency is improved with CPDLC Departure Clearances, saving 15 minutes or more on a typical flight, while WAAS/LPV and RNP approaches down to 0.3nm expand the range of airports where precision approaches can be performed.

"We chose the cutting-edge Universal InSight avionics cockpit retrofit upgrade to bring this beautiful, older Falcon 900B up to the latest 21st Century standards and enhance its market and resale value," Michael D. Long, CEO at Global Jet Partners says. "After a 5-month, complete upgrade, this aircraft is actively for sale and represents a high-value, turn-key market proposition."  

"This one-of-a-kind jet is a compelling example of the transformative potential of the InSight system," said Warren Peck, President at Phoenix Rising Aviation. "With InSight, Falcon 900B owners have a sustainable and cost-effective path to modernization, regardless of its original avionics configuration, ensuring that their aircraft remain competitive and valuable within the market."
