EPIC Avionics

There have been a number of aircraft on the white list with EPIC avionics. These were added at a time when there was insufficient data to be sure of the in-service performance of these aircraft. Following an analysis of the PA performance of these aircraft it was decided that aircraft fitted with EPIC avionics would not be eligible for inclusion on the white list from May 29th 2014 onwards until there is an expected improvement in their performance, and from the June 26th 2014 white list most EPIC equipped aircraft have been removed from the white list. Only aircraft with updated set of EPIC avionics will now be eligible to be added to the white list.

RTA44D

There have been a number of aircraft on the white list with Honeywell RTA44D VDRs installed. These aircraft were added to the white list so that the PA performance could be assessed before making any more general decision to include aircraft fitted with these VDRs on to the white list. Following analysis of the performance over the preceding period, it has been decided that from the June 26th white list the number of aircraft with RTA44Ds will be further restricted and new aircraft will not be added until a new version of the RTA44D is available. As from Dec 11th 2014 the previous set of RTA44D equipped aircraft will once again be added to the white list for the winter 2014 period in order to gain more experience and data from these aircraft and additional aircraft equipped with RTA44Ds will also be added to the white list on request. Only aircraft with updated RTA44Ds will now be eligible to be added to the white list.

Dlink+

There are a number of aircraft on the white list with Dlink+ avionics. These were added at a time when there was insufficient data to be sure of the in-service performance of these aircraft. Following an investigation by Spectralux a new version of the DLink + avionics (mod 4) is now available and aircraft with this version are eligible to be added to the white list.
