Clay Lacy Aviation has received FAA STC approval for a FANS-1/A+ solution that enables Bombardier Challenger 601-3A/R owners to meet worldwide mandates for preferential routing in the North Atlantic Track region and other oceanic airspace.

FANS-1/A+ improves communication between pilots and air traffic controllers by automatically transmitting position reports in text rather than voice format. This reduces stress on crew members and eliminates communication errors while improving aircraft safety and efficiency.

“Our Challenger FANS program provides owners the most cost-effective and convenient solution to meet current and future worldwide mandates while offering increased functionality and ease of operation,” Clay Lacy Aviation Director of Avionics Jim Lauer says. “We are installing the STC at our Van Nuys Airport FAA repair station, as well as making it available to Universal Avionics Authorized Dealers.”

The company has successfully completed the first installation of its STC’d FANS-1/A+ solution in a Challenger 601-3A using TrueNorth‘s Data Link Unit, the first to receive FAA, Transport Canada and EASA TSO C-159a approval.
