A world first in commercial air transport
For the first time ever in commercial air transport, a Synthetic Vision System (SVS) will be available in the Standard 3 avionics suite. The SVS will enable pilots to have a greater situational awareness.
The new avionics also include additional speed protections: when the aircraft reaches high or low speed limits, the crew is alerted and safe guidance is activated. In addition, customisable capabilities will be available, such as company route databases or checklists, offering the opportunity to adapt day-to-day operations to the airline expectations.
The Standard 3 can be retrofitted in ATR -600s already in service, through a simple software upgrade of the avionics suite. As of today, nearly 400 ATR -600 aircraft are operated worldwide. Developed over the last two years, the new avionics are the result of the close cooperation between ATR and Thales. ATR, and Thales as a tier 1 system integrator, have designed a turn-key avionics system tailored to ATR -600s.
