New G-III Joins UA’s Hangar

Aug 12, 2019

UA’s fleet of company aircraft are located a mile from Corporate Headquarters, which is important because it closely aligns product integration testing onboard the aircraft. Our in-house Flight Test and Designated Engineering Representative (DER) teams also provide valuable user interface feedback to enable us to design pilot-friendly products. The aircraft are maintained and modified by our in-house Maintenance team, consisting of avionics technicians, airframe and powerplant mechanics, and inspection authorization designees. Our team touts an impressive 100% dispatch record for all aircraft in the UA fleet.

Gulfstream G-III

We recently welcomed a Gulfstream G-III (N338UA) to our fleet of company aircraft. During the month of May, the aircraft traveled from Albany, New York to its new home at our Tucson International Airport (TUS) hangar.

Exciting plans are in store for the G-III – first and foremost to install the InSight™ Display System and ClearVision™ Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) with SkyLens™ Head-Wearable Display (HWD). The G-III will serve as a demonstration platform, an important resource to help support our corporate / business and airline customers who wish to see the system in flight.

UA also owns a Beechcraft King Air F-90 which serves as a cost-effective, reliable, and valuable research and development tool. Many cross-functional teams, including Engineering, Certification, Sales, and Customer Support benefit through the use of this on-aircraft testing during the development and certification of new products, as well as providing a vehicle for ongoing customer support for legacy products.

With the purchase of our new G-III aircraft, we need to make room in the hangar. We are selling our Cessna Citation VII, equipped with the InSight Display System for NextGen and beyond. For more information, check out the aircraft listing here.
