Air Iceland Completes Historic Flight with Universal Avionics-Equipped Bombardier Q200 (Dash 8)

Air Iceland recently completed a historic 2,345 nautical mile trip from Toronto’s Pearson Airport (CYYZ), Canada after the completion of a modification program by Universal Avionics’ Authorized Dealer, Field Aviation. The Toronto to Reykjavik redelivery flight of Air Iceland’s first Universal Avionics-equipped Bombardier Q200 (Dash 8) is believed to have been the longest non-stop flight in a Q200 – a total of eight hours and 39 minutes.

The modification program completed by Field Aviation in Toronto, Canada, fitted the initial Air Iceland Q200 aircraft with a Universal Avionics equipment-based flight deck package. The package included five EFI-890R Flat Panel Displays, dual Radio Control Units (RCU), dual Vision-1® Synthetic Vision Systems and dual UNS-1Ew WAAS/SBAS-Flight Management Systems (FMS). The second identically-equipped aircraft has since been delivered and both aircraft are in scheduled passenger service.

“We are looking into the future with our Dash 8 operation,” said Jónas Jónasson, Fleet Manager Dash 8, Air Iceland. “Our pilots love this new system and find it very easy to work with, enhancing the crew’s situational awareness and safety,” he added.
