Trade-In Non-SBAS (Legacy) Universal Avionics FMS for Credit Toward Purchase of New SBAS-FMS

Universal Avionics FMS Upgrade Incentive Program Available for Learjet 40/45/40XR/45XR and Citation Excel/XLS

Tucson, AZ – April 27, 2016 – Universal Avionics is offering a Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS)-Flight Management System (FMS) Upgrade Incentive Program for Learjet 40/45/40XR/45XR and Citation Excel/XLS aircraft operators. Throughout 2016, operators of these aircraft may trade in their non-SBAS (legacy) Universal Avionics FMS for a significant credit toward the purchase of a new, advanced capability SBAS-FMS.

“Our OEM-installed FMSs have been featured on Learjet aircraft for more than 30 years and Citation aircraft for over 20 years,” said Robert Clare, Universal Avionics Director of Sales. “We have substantial experience integrating various avionics systems in these models,” he added. “The 2016 SBAS-FMS Upgrade Incentive Program not only offers Learjet and Citation operators compatibility with the regional SBAS around the world, but also a path to Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) and Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out.”

Operating without LPV can be costly. Being diverted to an alternate airport due to weather or an out-of-service Instrument Landing System (ILS) may cost operators more than they realize. A Payback Calculator is available at to assist operators in finding out just how much they can save each year with performance improvements from SBAS LPV.

To learn more, stop by Universal Avionics Booth No. 316 during the 2016 Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) International Convention and Trade Show. Exhibits are open Thursday, April 28th and Friday, April 29th.
