Flying the modernized Bombardier Q200 with Air Iceland

John Croft, Aviation Week senior avionics and safety editor, flies in the jump seat of an Air Iceland Bombardier Q200 on a flight from Reykjavik to Isafjordur on Monday, December 17, 2012. Croft was seeing how the carrier uses its new integrated avionics suite, installed under a supplemental type certificate by Toronto's Field Aviation. The upgrade includes five Universal Avionics 8.9-in. LCDs, including engine parameters, and an L-3 standby instrument. Capabilities now include WAAS GPS and synthetic vision. Air Iceland has two Q200s, both with the upgrade.
