Worldwide Innovation – Implementation of a new datalink

Worldwide Innovation – Implementation of a new datalink

Air Hamburg is delighted to announce that, in partnership with Honeywell Aerospace Inc. and 328 Support Services GmbH, the introduction of a world leading avionics update for our fleet.

After two years of rigorous development and testing with our partners ALTYS Technologies and the team at EUROCONTROL, our Legacy 650 D-AHOS has been fitted with a world’s first prototype PM-CPDLC software.

This software update to the existing cockpit avionics is set to revolutionise the way that our crew can communicate with Air Traffic Control, and is the first of its kind to be installed on an Embraer business jet.

The software uses satellite mobile data links, already installed on the aircraft, to communicate with ATC with areas of poor radio coverage, such as over oceans and deserts. While this technology has been in use for some years on aircraft – the new system provides much more advanced communication possibilities than previously available to business jet aircraft.

With the certification process of this project nearly complete, and the avionics update will be rolled-out across our entire Legacy fleet of 17 aircraft. Through strong teamwork and cooperation with multiple agencies, Air Hamburg is committed to pushing boundaries of aviation technology and safety.

Another highlight on board the Embraer Legacy 650E: A Synthetic Vision System (SVS) has been retrofitted to the D-ASAP! The system displays an interactive topographic map on the cockpit monitors and brings the aircraft to the forefront with the latest generation of avionics.

The conversion is certified as a service bulletin by the manufacturer Embraer and includes the installation of new LCD displays, new main computers (integrated computers) and modified controls. After successful tests D-ASAP is now back in service with the new terrain display.

Two more Legacy 650E will be equipped: The system will soon be established in the cockpit of the D-AJET and the D-ARMY.

Since autumn 2018, one C-Check has replaced another in the hangar of AIR HAMBURG TECHNIK. In summer 2019, the third 48-month check of an AIR HAMBURG fleet member was successfully completed: D-AHOX was handed over to AIR HAMBURG's flight operations after seven weeks - in which around 4.000 man-hours were worked - and is now flying without a hitch.

Simultaneously, the AIR HAMBURG TECHNIK team accomplished an additional 15 projects and unscheduled deployments throughout Europe.
