Falcon 900 And 7x Avionics/Panel Question

Mon Jun 22, 2009 5:59 pm

Hi,

I have been seeing alot of flight deck pictures for the Falcon 900 series esp. for the 900EX series that has the same avionics systems panels that is like the same as on the Falcon 7X...

So does this mean that a Falcon 900 series can have the same avionics systems (like the one below links) as the new Falcon 7X's avionics ???
But the only difference is, that the 900 series jets dont have the side-stick....

I have taken a closer look again, and the systems look very much the same as the new Falcon 7X's panel....

Not all 900EXs have the four-screen LCD avionics suite, only the "Easy" version. Same with the Falcon 2000EX. Older 900EXs have a Honeywell Primus 2000, IIRC.

The 7X also uses the Easy suite, the sidestick providing a hint that it has a FBW system.
Exceptions confirm the rule.

But can the 900 series be refitted with the Falcon 7X LCD screens?
So in other words, is it possible?

Anything is possible with enough $$$. The bigger question, is it worth it? Probably not.
