West Star Aviation Receives EASA Approval For Honeywell CD-830 Installation
October 16, 2018 – West Star Aviation is pleased to announce it has received EASA approval for installation of a Honeywell CD-830 Control Display Unit (CDU) at their Grand Junction, CO, facility.
West Star Aviation is approved to install these units in various models of aircraft including Hawker, Challenger, Global Express, Embraer, Falcon, Gulfstream and more that were previously equipped with a Honeywell FMS model CD-810, CD-815 or CD-820 CDU. The CD-830 offers equipped aircraft a high resolution display and has full touchscreen functionality.
“We are pleased to have received this approval from EASA as it aligns perfectly with our rapid growth and continued efforts to expand our capabilities and facilities to accommodate customers, both with US and European registered aircraft,” said Dave Krogman, General Manager of West Star Aviation Grand Junction.
“The installation of the CD-830 allows for us to provide our customers with the option to upgrade an existing FMS system, potentially reducing cost and downtime that would usually come with repairing or upgrading the entire FMS unit,” Krogman continued.
