L-3 standby instrument chosen for new Dornier 228s

12th May 2009 - 16:32 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


RUAG Aerospace has selected the GH-3100 Electronic Standby Instrument System (ESIS) and PS-835 Emergency Power Supply from L-3 Avionics Systems as standard equipment on the Dornier 228 New Generation (NG) aircraft. RUAG is resuming production of the model with a modern avionics package and improved performance capabilities. Deliveries are scheduled for 2010.

“With the GH-3100, pilots will have a reliable standby system that provides information in a layout that matches the primary flight display – it makes the transition to backup instruments seamless,” said Larry Riddle, vice-president of business development for L-3 Avionics Systems. “A global support network and proven reliability make it an ideal choice for an internationally operated, multi-role aircraft like the Dornier 228 NG.”

Designed to replace conventional electro-mechanical standby attitude, airspeed and altitude instruments, the solid-state GH-3100 ESIS is capable of providing all three functions, plus heading, slip/skid, navigation data and vertical speed in a single three-inch flat-panel display.

The GH-3100 features an integrated air data sensor card with pitot static connections directly to the unit, which eliminates the need for a remote mounted air data computer. An Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Display (AMLCD) provides exceptional readability in direct sunlight as well as dark cockpit environments.
