West Star Aviation Receives EASA Approval for Honeywell CD-830 Installation
West Star Aviation announces it has received EASA approval for installation of a Honeywell CD-830 Control Display Unit (CDU) at its Grand Junction, CO, facility. West Star Aviation is approved to install the units in various models of aircraft including Hawker, Challenger, Global Express, Embraer, Falcon, Gulfstream and more that were previously equipped with a Honeywell FMS model CD-810, CD-815 or CD-820 CDU.
The CD-830 offers equipped aircraft a high-resolution display and has full touch-screen functionality.
"We are pleased to have received this approval from EASA, as it aligns perfectly with our rapid growth and continued efforts to expand our capabilities and facilities to accommodate customers, both with U.S.- and European-registered aircraft," says Dave Krogman, general manager of West Star Aviation Grand Junction. "The installation of the CD-830 allows for us to provide our customers with the option to upgrade an existing FMS system, potentially reducing cost and downtime that would usually come with repairing or upgrading the entire FMS unit."
West Star Aviation specializes in the repair and maintenance of airframes, windows and engines, as well as major modifications, avionics installation and repair, interior refurbishment, surplus avionics sales, accessory services, paint and parts. In addition to its facilities in East Alton, IL; Grand Junction, CO; Chattanooga, TN; and Perryville, MO, West Star Aviation runs maintenance operations at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport in Aspen, CO; Chicago Executive Airport in Chicago, IL; Centennial Airport in Denver, CO; Conroe-North Houston Regional Airport in Houston, TX; and Scottsdale Airport in Scottsdale, AZ.
