Trade bulky flight manuals for one slim, portable, easily updated, interactive tablet―that’s the advantage of PlaneBook, a software program created by Gulfstream pilots and technical writers.
Infrared technology is available for Gulfstream GIII, Gulfstream GIV and Gulfstream GV cockpits with the Kollsman General Aviation Vision System (GAViS). Video images can be displayed on one of the aircraft’s existing central display units or on approved aircraft devices such as an electronic flight bag.
The increased visibility from GAViS provides pilots better reference points, which improves pilots’ situational awareness and allows them to respond more effectively to changing flight conditions.
Experience Product Enhancements
The Gulfstream GIV and Gulfstream GV cockpits leap forward in avionics capability with a PlaneDeck retrofit, which replaces the original Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) primary flight displays with sharper, more vivid Liquid Crystal Display (LCD).
Maintenance management and aircraft availability get an additional boost with the Gulfstream-created PlaneConnect program, an onboard, in-flight computer program that monitors aircraft systems and emails maintenance information to operators’ technicians.
