Air Iceland upgrades Dash 8 avionics

Air Iceland recently completed a historic 2,345 nautical mile trip from Toronto’s Pearson Airport (CYYZ) in Canada after the completion of a modification programme by Universal Avionics’ Authorised Dealer, Field Aviation.

The Toronto to Reykjavik redelivery flight of Air Iceland’s first Universal Avionics-equipped Bombardier Q200 (Dash 8) is believed to have been the longest non-stop flight in a Q200 – a total of eight hours and 39 minutes.

The modification programme completed by Field Aviation in Toronto, Canada, fitted the initial Air Iceland Q200 aircraft with a Universal Avionics equipment-based flight deck package. The package included five EFI-890R Flat Panel Displays, dual Radio Control Units (RCU), dual Vision-1 Synthetic Vision Systems and dual UNS-1Ew WAAS/SBAS-Flight Management Systems (FMS). The second identically-equipped aircraft has since been delivered and both aircraft are in scheduled passenger service.
