Constant Aviation will offer Honeywell’s Ovation Select CMS upgrade on Gulfstream IV, V, G450 and G550, and Bombardier Global 5000, 6000 and Express aircraft. Constant Aviation is offering special pricing throughout NBAA 2016, held in Orlando, Florida, on November 1-3.
The Ovation Select CMS provides connectivity via smartphones, tablets or installed passenger control units. The system integrates HDLCD monitors, Blu-ray players, satellite television, external camera systems or any other carry-on portable electronic device that can be interfaced into the system through an auxiliary input panel. Ovation Select utilizes an Ethernet network backbone and puts the entertainment system, lighting, temperature and galley controls at the passengers’ fingertips with touchscreen panels. There are built-in system monitoring and maintenance functions.
“In addition to the price savings, we are providing Honeywell Avionics Protection Plan (HAPP) coverage for one year free of charge with the purchase of a three-year contract,” said Jay Rizzo, vice president of sales at Constant Aviation. “We are looking at options to provide this CMS upgrade on additional large-cabin airframes in the near future. There are approximately 16,000 Gulfstream IV, V, G450 and G550 models in service at this time; 67% of that number have been in operation for more than 10 years. The Global platform sits at approximately 27% of the fleet at the 10+ year age. These stats make them excellent candidates for not only for CMS upgrades, but avionics and interior upgrades as well.”
