Michel Potvin, president, Esterline Avionics Systems, said: “We are very proud to receive the Silver Performance Excellence Award and recognition by Boeing of our achievements as a trusted supplier. We extend congratulations to our team for their exemplary work and efforts in achieving this success with Boeing.”
Esterline supplies its CMC Electronics 10.4 inch PilotView® Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) to Boeing for Next-Generation 737s and Boeing Business Jets. The Class 2 EFB system is available on production aircraft and for retrofit. Boeing’s EFB solution is fully integrated, allowing customers the flexibility they need. The Boeing system provides an integrated solution from the aircraft to the airline’s back-office and offers value through improved operational efficiencies.
In addition, the PilotView® CMA-1410 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) is standard equipment on the Boeing 777 as the Maintenance Access Terminal (MAT) replacement. The 10.4 inch device is used as a display terminal in the 777 flight deck, enabling maintenance personnel and crew to access aircraft systems from one central location and relay data where required. The company also supplies its 10.4” PilotView® Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) for the Boeing Onboard Network Access Terminal (ONAT) Program where the unit is used as the access terminal on the 747-8.
Esterline supplies its CMC Electronics CMA-2200SB Intermediate Gain Antenna (IGA), the industry’s lightest top-mounted electronically steered phased array IGA as a line-fit option on Boeing 777X and 737 aircraft. The CMA-2200SB is ARINC 781 compliant and supports classic Aero-I, multi-channel SwiftBroadband and SwiftBroadband Safety services, permitting customers to use ACARS, FANS 1/A and SATCOM voice to communicate with ATC and AOC when outside of VHF range.
In addition, the CMA-2102SB High Gain Antenna (HGA) is available on Boeing 777 and 767 aircraft as a line-fit option. The CMA-2102’s high reliability and performance are key contributors to the achievement of a recent milestone to ship the company’s 3500th antenna.
