Jet Aviation develops STC to replace cockpit displays with DU-875 LCD units
Jet Aviation has developed an STC to update, in partnership with Honeywell, soon-to-be obsolete cockpit displays with DU-875 LCD units. The partnership provides a trade-in credit for each DU-870 replaced with a DU-875 before 2018. It further permits displays to be replaced one at a time or all at once. CRT units face obsolescence soon because repairs will not be possible after the end of the year. That will require owners to replace them with LCD units if they plan to sell the aircraft on the open market. The DU-875 LCD upgrade secures the future of the aircraft for 10 to 15 years and increases resale value. The upgrade does not require additional pilot training or other cockpit modifications. It can be performed at any Jet Aviation maintenance location worldwide with minimal downtime.
