Melbourne, FL. – March 12, 2024 Avidyne Corporation, a leading provider of integrated avionics systems for general aviation and business aircraft announced a dual Avidyne Atlas Flight Management System upgrade for the Dassault Falcon 50, providing fully-coupled GPS approach capability, including LPV, LP, LNAV/VNAV and LNAV-only, extending the useful life of these venerable aircraft without the need for costly replacement of the legacy Collins ProLine 4 system. The installation of the dual ATLAS FMS/GPS/NAV/COM systems in the Falcon 50 was completed by SAB Aviaçâo in Brazil with a field approval.

“The dual Atlas FMS configuration is a terrific retrofit option for the Falcon 50,” said Ed Paulsen, Avidyne’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development. “Atlas gives new life to these highly-capable airframes without the high cost of a full flight deck replacement, adding a whole host of new capabilities—most importantly opening up hundreds of airports and runway ends with GPS-based LPV Approaches.”

“Avidyne would like to extend our appreciation to Mario Alencar and the team of SAB Aviaçâo, for initiating and completing this installation and approval,” said Juan Blaha, Avidyne’s Sales Director for Latin America. “The fully integrated dual ATLAS FMS/GPS/NAV/COM systems replaced several legacy remote boxes in the Falcon 50, clearing avionics bay space and increasing useful load, while extending the utility and capabilities of the aircraft.”
