A look at the EFI-890R cockpit retrofit upgrade.

Duncan Aviation will display a Falcon 900B, fitted with a EFI-890R cockpit retrofit upgrade built by Universal Avionics, at NBAA 2013 next week and will allow interested operators to walk through the aircraft.

The aircraft will be on static display at Henderson Executive Airport in Las Vegas from 22-24 October. The EFI-890R cockpit upgrade replaces 25 older instruments and significantly improves reliability and situational awareness.

“This is an exciting upgrade that offers the capabilities that operators have been asking for, as well as enhanced safety, and reduced operational costs,” said Duncan Aviation’s senior avionics sales representative Gary Harpster. “Universal Avionics and Duncan Aviation have a long-standing relationship and a history of providing excellent upgrades to aircraft operators. We are excited to provide this solution for the Falcon 900B.”

Duncan Aviation recently completed a new supplemental type certificate for the EFI-890R upgrade.

The Falcon 900B on display has a number of other interior cabin upgrades including a new galley. New winglets were installed prior to the aircraft getting repainted with paint provided by Akzo Nobel.

Duncan Aviation also installed the Rockwell Collins Venue cabin management system.
