Nolinor Aviation updates 737-200 avionics

Charter carrier, Nolinor Aviation, has recently made investments to update its avionics systems to increase system reliability and minimise delays due to electromechanical and analogue equipment failures from the original avionics suite.

For the first time ever on a B737-200, all electromechanical navigational and flight instruments will be replaced with four active matrix LCD colour screens with LED blacklighting (Universal Avionics EFI 890R). These will be coupled with two solid-state inertial navigation systems (Honeywell Laseref V) and two LPV flight management systems (Universal UNS-1Lw). In addition, the transponder system will be upgraded to meet ADS-B OUT requirements.

The replacement of all gyroscope components streamlines the system architecture by eliminating a number of digital/analogue interfaces and increasing the stability of navigational instruments in remote areas. Meanwhile, improvements to the on-board navigation systems will increase the flexibility of operations in monitored areas.

This US$828,350 (CA$1,110,000) investment to modernize the avionics equipment of Nolinor’s first Boeing 737-200 (registration C-GTUK) will also reduce the amount of time required for maintenance troubleshooting due to the self-diagnostic capacity of the new on-board systems.
