AUSTIN, Texas -- Embraer Services & Support has completed the first upgrade of a Phenom 300 light business jet with a two-person divan, increasing the aircraft's capacity to 11 occupants, the highest in its class. The announcement was announced April 9 at the Embraer Executive Operators Conference, in Austin Texas, a joint event hosted by Embraer Services & Support and the Embraer Jet Owners Association.

"I am very excited to share this news with our Phenom 300 customers around the world," said Johann Bordais, President & CEO, Embraer Services & Support. "And I also want to congratulate our teams for developing this solution to make our Phenom 300 customers even happier. At each of our service centers, our teams are eagerly awaiting the privilege of serving our Phenom 300 customers with this special upgrade for their aircraft."

The first upgrade was completed at Embraer’s Customer Service Center in Sorocaba, Brazil, through the implementation of a service bulletin, which is now available and applicable to the entire global fleet of more than 430 Phenom 300 in operation in about 30 countries.

The divan, positioned at the front of the cabin facing the entrance and the refreshment center, was already available as an option in one of three cabin layouts in new Phenom 300 just as it is in the new Phenom 300E, which entered service in the first quarter of this year. Developed by maintenance engineers and technicians, the divan upgrade is being made available to Phenom 300 customers at all 70 owned and authorized service centers worldwide, leveraging existing maintenance team skills and resources.

BORDES, France -- Safran Helicopter Engines has received EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) engine type certification for its Ardiden 3C.

Powering the Avicopter AC352, the engine has been jointly developed and built by Safran Helicopter Engines, Dongan and HAPRI, parts of the Aero Engine Corporation of China (AECC) consortium.

Known in China as the WZ16, it should be certified by CAAC (Civil Aviation Administration of China) in September 2019. The Ardiden 3C/WZ16 will be the first helicopter engine to be certified by both CAAC and EASA.

The Ardiden 3C/WZ16 is a new-generation turboshaft in the 1,700 to 2,000 shp power class. It features a remarkably compact modular architecture, a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio and a low cost-of-ownership. Compared to engines operating in the same power range, it offers ten per cent lower fuel consumption.

Ardiden 3C flight test campaign started in December 2016 with the AC352's maiden flight. Another variant, the Ardiden 3G, has also been selected by Russian Helicopters to power its Ka-62 which made its first flight in May 2017.

Since first ground tests of its two variants, the Ardiden 3 range maturation and certification campaign has accumulated more than 10,000 hours of trials, and will demonstrate a high level of maturity at entry-into-service.

With over 500 engines in operation, China represents a major strategic market for Safran Helicopter Engines. One of every two Chinese-registered helicopters is equipped with a Safran engine or licensed product. This level of business is the result of 40 years of cooperation with industry in China.

TORONTO -- FlightSafety International has selected Field Aviation to provide its EFI-890R Flight Deck Modernization program for one of the company’s simulators for the Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft. The simulator is located at FlightSafety’s Toronto Learning Center. The Field Aviation EFI-890R Flight Deck Modernization program is a state of the art replacement of the legacy Dash 8 OEM electromechanical and electronic flight and engine instrumentation systems with five Universal Avionics (UA) EFI-890R flat panel integrated smart displays. Four of these present the pilots with navigation and situational awareness, and the fifth (center unit) displays engine information. The system provides full redundancy by allowing information to be switched between the displays. This program was developed with operator input and utilizes common part numbers for all Dash 8 Series 100/200/300 aircraft. The Field Aviation STC has been approved by Transport Canada, the FAA and EASA and maintains the Dash 8 common pilot type rating.
