CMC Electronics is supplying its state-of-the-art CMA-9000 flight management system (FMS) to Pilatus Aircraft Ltd as a standard fit on the fleet of Pilatus PC-21 turboprop trainer aircraft selected by the Republic of Singapore Air Force. CMC Electronics is also supplying its compact, high-performance SparrowHawk head-up display (HUD) integrated with a HUD symbol generator, and a video display unit for the rear cockpit of the PC-21.

The CMA-9000 family of compact FMS variants is well suited for modern digital cockpits in fixed and rotary wing aircraft for both civil and military applications. The single unit CMA-9000 has civil certified multi-sensor GPS, INS and DME navigation capabilities and advanced communication functions such as Datalink. It conforms to the ARINC-739 multifunction control display unit standard, making it suitable as a display and control unit for other systems such as ACARS, ACMS and Satcom. It is the next-generation FMS derived from CMC’s successful CMA-900 FMS/GPS and CMA-3000 FMS. The CMC Electronics’ previous generation FMS, the CMA-900, is in service with over 60 airlines and military operators.
