Does anyone have any idea what other aircraft uses the same avionics / flight display package that the Dash 8-400 Aircraft uses?

Thanks

Universal UNS-1 systems have been certified on nearly all business aircraft original-equipment manufacturers, on such models as Astras, Citations, Challengers, Falcons, Gulfstreams, Hawkers, King Airs and Learjets. The systems are also installed on numerous regional airline aircraft (including the Q400). In addition, Universal Avionics has captured a major share of the retrofit market.

Nope, not kidding! There's actually a few features of the Universal that I like better than the Honeywell FMZ series on the Gulfstreams.

I like the avionics on the Dash, but I guess for commonality they kept the same somewhat cranky autopilot as the -100 -200 -300. Does fine at intercepting a LOC if you're less than 150 knots but other than that, be careful.

Thales CRT screens are awesome, much bigger than the GIV or GV.

*sigh*
I've used both UNS-1 and Honeywell FMZ's, I can't fathom liking the Universal's over the Honeywells-I loved the FMZ's.

Not familiar with Thales screens, they sound nice.

:facepalm:

You know...thats something you're supposed to think and NOT say while in the company of men. Ya got a lot to learn son....and I thought I taught you well...



On topic...both the UNS and Honeywell had some awesome features in the 145. I liked the Honeywell for general stuff and the UNS was incredible with descent planing....basically put my mind to rest.
