Chicago Jet Group Selects Universal Avionics for Data Link Solution with NextGen Pro•Link™

Sugar Grove, IL

NextGen Pro•Link™ is the newest upgrade available from Chicago Jet Group (CJG), introducing the first complete Proline 4 Dual Integrated FMS upgrade for legacy integrated navigation systems.  Universal Avionics provides the foundation avionics components to equip and certify aircraft for Controller-Pilot Data Link including CPDLC-DCL, CPDLC-Enroute, FANS 1/A+, and European ATN B1 (formerly Link 2000+). 

The NextGen Pro•Link™ upgrade meets the global compliance requirements for the Gulfstream G200, Falcon 50/50EX, and Falcon 2000/2000EX. It is the most effective Dual FMS upgrade path for classic Dassault Falcon aircraft models and the Gulfstream G200.

Mike Mitera, president of CJG commented “The NextGen Pro•Link™ program provides the upgrade path that aircraft manufactures and owner/operators have been requesting and have never been able to obtain until now.  Upgrading legacy navigation products with Pro•Link™ NextGen capable components provides the one compelling argument for owner/operators to investigate what a considerable return on avionics upgrades will mean for their aviation investment.”

Chicago Jet Group is the premier provider of PBCS compliant, data link solutions, avionics upgrades, installation and certification, meeting all requirements of NextGen Data Communications, FANS 1/A+ Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC), Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Contract (ADS-C) and European Aeronautical Telecommunications Network Base 1 (ATN-B1).

“The FAA NextGen roadmap for Data Comm will require operators to upgrade their aircraft with a Communications Management Unit that affords pilots the ability of CPDLC DCL, pre-departure clearances, and enroute CPDLC,” said Robert Randall, Universal Avionics U.S. Senior Sales Manager. “The UniLink UL-800/801 CMU also offers FANS 1/A+ with ATN B1,” he added. “We are pleased that CJG has created the path to allow the installation on these aircraft. We hope to see more certifications come on line in the near future as NextGen continues to evolve.”
