For ADS-B Out Fokker Services, the Global Independent Aerospace Service Provider, can equip aircraft with the upgrade needed to become compliant with the FAA and EASA mandates. The CPDLC solution bridges the information gap between pilots and air traffic controllers, providing a two-way text message communication channel between them, while the EFB solution puts all the necessary equipment in the aircraft to use an iPad® as an EFB in the cockpit. For the ULD, a beacon is attached to the fuselage and transmits a low-frequency acoustic signal for at least 90 days to support the detection of the aircraft if it becomes submerged during overwater operations. Fokker Services has also applied for FATA validation on other Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs).

Since first entering the Russian market in 2010, Fokker Services has served over 400 aircraft of Russian operators with a variety of modifications, including innovative EASA approved solutions for the ADS-B Out and CPDLC mandates. Fokker Services also holds multiple modification STCs from other regional airworthiness authorities in countries such as Egypt, India, and more.
