DAC International Inc. (DAC), a subsidiary of Aero Precision Holdings LP, announced that it has received Canadian acceptance of supplemental type certificate (STC) for the Esterline CMA-6800 display for the Sikorsky S-76B/C helicopter. The STC includes the S-76C+ and S-76C++ models.
“The product provides many benefits as a form fit function replacement for the Honeywell ED-800 product line,” said DAC International president Cisco Hernandez. “We believe the CMA-6800 offers our customers a simple replacement solution for the aging ED-800s on many of the S-76 platforms worldwide. This will save substantial weight, thus reducing operating costs and further extending the life of their existing cockpits.”
The CMA-6800 electronic display system was designed to replace the legacy Honeywell ED-800 cathode ray tube (CRT) displays. In addition, DAC holds an AML STC that includes the Hawker 800/800xp/1000, Bombardier’s Challenger 601-3A/3R and Dash 8-100/200/300, the CL-415 SuperScooper, Cessna Citation 650, Dassault Falcon 900, Fokker 50 and the Gulfstream III.
