Explore ACI Jet Fleet Technology

Advanced Airframes, Powered Performance

Manufactures individually and combined have developed technology over the years that have made big impacts on general aviation aircraft. Advancements in aerodynamics, structures, materials, and control systems have not only improved performance, but safety as well.


INFRARED FLIR CAMERA

The forward looking infrared camera “FLIR” uses infrared light to provide the crew with real time video images that are projected on the pilot’s digital HUD display. This provides your crew with the ability to obtain a superior view of the terrain, obstacles and approaches, regardless of weather conditions outside.

DE-ICING EQUIPMENT

The leading edges of the wings are heated with warm bleed air from the engines to prevent atmospheric ice from accumulating on the aircraft's exterior.  The tail surfaces are also heated, or in some cases de-iced with pneumatic boots that inflate to shed ice as it begins to form.

MULTI-DISC CARBON BREAKS

Multi-disc carbon brakes have evolved over time to become one of the most effective means of stopping an aircraft in a quick and safe manner.  Unlike traditional steel brakes, carbon brakes are lighter, cool faster, and actually become more efficient at higher temperatures.

FLAPS

Flaps are located on the trailing edge of the wing and are used to alter its lift characteristics. This  reduces the speed at which the aircraft can be safely flown and also increases the angle of descent for landing. Additionally, flaps reduce takeoff and landing distances, making shorter runways more accessible.

ENGINES

ACI Jet's fleet is powered by engines that are manufactured by the world's best, most reputable companies.

 


WINGLETS (WINGTIPS)

Winglets are intended to improve the efficiency of fixed-wing aircraft. There are several types of winglets, and although they function in different manners, the intended effect is always to reduce the aircraft's drag by partial recovery of the tip vortex energy. This increases both the aircraft's fuel efficiency and its range. Additionally, winglets improve aircraft handling characteristics and enhance safety for following aircraft.

THRUST REVERSERS

Thrust reversers act against the forward travel of the aircraft, providing deceleration. These systems are featured on many modern jets, and help the aircraft to slow down just after landing, reducing wear on the brakes and enabling shorter landing distances.

YAW DAMPER

A yaw damper is a device used on many aircraft (usually jets and turboprops) to reduce the rolling and yawing oscillations sometimes known as dutch roll. The use of a yaw damper helps to provide a better ride for passengers, and on some aircraft the yaw damper is a required piece of equipment to ensure that the aircraft stability remains within specified values.

Intelligent Flight Decks, At Your Crew's Fingertips

Our aircraft are equipped with some of the most state-of the art technology, keeping  pilots fully aware of changes that may occur with the airplane’s status or flight path during all phases of  flight. Flight crew communication relies on the use of audio, visual, and tactile methods and flight decks are designed to provide automation to assist crewmembers in the safe operation of the airplane.


​HEADS-UP DISPLAY (HUD)

Technology, like the HUD in our G650, allows the pilot to view data through a transparent screen in his or her forward field of vision. The system blends three-dimensional images of terrain, obstacles and runways with instrument readings from the pilot’s Primary Flight Display, allowing the instrument data to merge seamlessly with the pilot’s view of the world through the windshield.

Electronic Flight Information System (EFIS)

The electronic flight instrument system (EFIS) integrates many individual instruments into a single presentation called a primary flight display (PFD). Since all flight instruments are combined in one integrated electronic flight instrument system, a number of enhancements to conventional flight instruments are now possible.

MOVING MAP DISPLAY WITH TERRAIN & TRAFFIC

A moving map display is a type of navigation system that displays the aircraft's current location, altitude, airspeed and ETA to destination at the center of a map. As the aircraft moves, the map moves, always keeping the aircraft at the center of the display. Additionally, the moving map communicates with other  systems, displaying other traffic or terrain in the airspace around the aircraft.

3-PLY HEATED WINDSHIELD

Aircraft windshields are an impressive piece of modern technology with an inner structural glass plies, intermediate layers of polyurethane or plexiglass, and an outer heated glass layer that prevents ice formation.  Nonmetallic exterior coatings are also used for rain shedding and window durability.  These devices are capable of operating in extreme temperatures and can withstand the impact of an 8lb bird at speeds up to 500mph.  Additionally, this advanced windshield technology reflects solar (infrared) light, and allows no optical distortion, providing a greater level of safety during critical phases of flight.

FLIGHT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (FMS)

An FMS is a specialized computer system that automates a wide variety of in-flight tasks, reducing the workload on the flight crew to the point that modern civilian aircraft no longer carry flight engineers or navigators. A primary function is in-flight management of the flight plan. Using various sensors (such as GPS) to determine the aircraft's position, the FMS  guides the aircraft along the flight plan.
