"EASy II is a major upgrade to the EASy flight deck, which will offer new operational features, such as WAAS/LPV, RNP SAAAR, Automatic Dependant Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) out, Synthetic Vision System (SVS), as well as compliance with mandated High Speed DFDR and Remote Independent Power Supply (RIPS) for N-registered part 135 aircraft, and Controller Pilot Data Link Communication (CPDLC) for Europe.
EASy II also incorporates performance enhancements based on feedback from previous releases.
This unprecedented number of new features has substantially increased the number of design reviews during the development phase and evaluation trials with both the Airworthiness Authorities, and the Honeywell/Dassault pilots. This resulted in a significant increase in the EASy II development workload. Because of the downturn in the business jet marketplace, we were unable to allocate additional resources to meet the level of quality that operators could expect from Dassault.
We feel strongly that to attempt to meet the original schedule would have risked compromising the reliability level required during the introduction of the new package. As a result, following the initial Falcon 900 flight tests, Dassault and Honeywell have jointly decided to postpone the release of EASy II."
