Abu Dhabi Aviation: DU 1080 Display Upgrade

Abu Dhabi Aviation: DU 1080 Display Upgrade

  • Four reasons to upgrade your cockpit with the DU1080 display

The past 18 months have been challenging for everyone – especially those involved in aviation. As life and flying finally seem to be returning to some sort of normalcy, Abu Dhabi Aviation and Honeywell invite operators of the AW139 to return to the skies with a fresher outlook – thanks to the DU-1080 Display Upgrade. And here’s four reasons why there has never been a better time to do so.

In with the new – out with the old

Although it isn’t the New Year, there is definitely a feeling of new beginnings and fresh starts as we emerge from the pandemic. A chance for new resolutions and renewed optimism. The last thing you want as an operator who’s been effectively grounded for almost 18 months is to be grounded again due to an AOG situation or an obsolescence issue. The original DU-1080 forward display units are now almost 20 years old and, due to obsolete components in these older units, Honeywell can no longer guarantee to repair the original ones.

Future-proofed capabilities

However, this upgrade isn’t just about obsolescence – it’s about dramatically improving your aircraft’s reliability and value. The DU-1080 is more than a simple display update – by upgrading today, you’ll also ensure your cockpit is future-proofed for tomorrow’s next-generation avionics functionality and capabilities. The displays are compatible with Honeywell’s latest avionics upgrades for the AW139 which are also available through Abu Dhabi Aviation.

Trusted partner

Abu Dhabi Aviation is a trusted Honeywell dealer, with the experience and approvals to look after your AW139. They have the capabilities and manpower to upgrade your AW139 with the DU1080 displays – including the hardware and software packages to enable the latest avionic functionality. Based in the United Arab Emirates, with over 40 years of experience in the aviation market, Abu Dhabi Aviation is the largest helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft operator and maintenance, repair and overhaul facility in the Middle East and North Africa.

Savings to help you soar

We know how hard the last 18 months have been, and we know that the months ahead will bring new challenges as we all return to the skies. To support operators, Honeywell and Abu Dhabi Aviation are offering significant savings up to 55% when upgrading all four forward display units on an exchange basis.
