Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced it has earned approval from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration to upgrade Gulfstream GIV and GV aircraft with Future Air Navigation System (FANS) over Iridium (FOI) using the TrueNorth Simphone FANS 1/A+ Data Link Unit (DLU). Once installed, the stand-alone unit enables data connectivity over the Iridium satellite communications (SATCOM) network, allowing for FANS communication in remote coverage areas. Operational mandates require FANS 1/A+ for the most wind-efficient North Atlantic Ocean (NAT) flight tracks. After Jan. 30, 2020, aircraft without FANS 1/A+ will not be permitted to operate in NAT region above 28,000 feet/8,534 meters. The Gulfstream FOI DLU solution may be incorporated as part of the initial FANS 1/A+ installation or as a follow-on fitment. The TrueNorth Simphone FANS-1/A+ DLU and accompanying fuselage-mounted antenna can be installed at any ofGulfstream's U.S. service centers, which are located in Savannah and Brunswick, Georgia; West Palm Beach, Florida; Westfield, Massachusetts; Appleton, Wisconsin; Dallas; Las Vegas and Long Beach, California.
