October 3, 2017: StandardAero Business Aviation’s Houston (IAH) facility performed the industry’s first installation of an ALTO Aviation Cadence Switch System (CSS) CMS/IFE enhancement on a Falcon 900EX aircraft. This installation was carried out in conjunction with a 3C airframe inspection and a host of other upgrades, including avionics upgrades to meet upcoming mandates, CMS/IFE upgrade, Gogo ATG 4G provisioning, SD Router installation and a new STC for the Honeywell MKV-A EGPWS. The aircraft was delivered back to the customer in mid-August, 2017.
“Our customer wanted a new CMS/IFE system solution that would be simple and cost effective and we were pleased to be the first MRO to offer this enhancement for a Falcon 900EX,” said Don Milum, Director of Technical Sales for StandardAero Business Aviation. “The ALTO solution was the perfect fit for this installation as the system was straight forward and simple to install with switches fitting into existing cut-outs for very effective system integration.”
