Universal Avionics (UA), an Elbit Systems company, today announced Performance Package capabilities for FlightPartner Connected Avionics in a new partnership with Aircraft Performance Group (APG).

The new package fully integrates with the existing workflows of the Connected FMS and relies on APG’s performance for take-off and engine-out calculations, obstacle analysis, landing factors, and more.
