328 Support Services GmbH, the Type Certificate holder for the D328 Jet and turboprop aircraft, is pleased to announce the commencement of a major cockpit upgrade programme for the aircraft. The programme, which has just commenced, is expected to be certified by EASA and the US FAA by late 2016.

• New Primus Elite LCD displays that save weight and provide enhanced features such as charts and maps, enhanced vision, video display capabilities and synthetic vision, which will be available as an option.

• A second FMS option will be available for the first time on the D328 turboprop aircraft allowing WAAS-LPV and remote and oceanic operations.

• The capability to provide PM-CPDLC communications with ground based stations.

• Smart Runway and Smart Landing upgrade capability

• A Class 3 Electronic flight bag.

Dave Jackson, Managing Director of 328 Group, commented: "This upgrade programme, which will be overseen by our engineering team in Oberphaffenhofen, Germany, will ensure that the D328 aircraft has the opportunity to operate in all areas of the world in compliance with all known regulatory requirements for many years to come."
