13 Embraer Jets will be fitted with dual SBAS-FMS to fly complex procedures, meet airspace requirements, and enable NextGen capabilities.
Tucson, Arizona — June 20, 2023 — Universal Avionics (UA), a leading manufacturer of innovative commercial avionics, has been selected by Amelia to provide Flight Management System (FMS) upgrades for its fleet of 13 Embraer jets. This modification will allow the airline to meet operational airspace requirements while enabling complex procedures.
Two Embraer ERJ 135s and one ERJ 145 will be modified this year, with the rest of the fleet to follow.
“As more airports adopt NextGen performance-based navigation routes and procedures, modernizing the aircraft becomes necessary to maintain sustainable and efficient operations,” said Dror Yahav, Chief Executive Officer of Universal Avionics. “Amelia will benefit from continued operations and enhanced safety in low visibility conditions, with more access to smaller airports for regional airline customers.”
