Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) has achieved civil certification from Transport Canada for its Cockpit 4000 Integrated Avionics System as installed on the Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) T-6B Texan trainer aircraft.
The certification supports 14 CFR Part 23 Acrobatic Category, Class lll aircraft installation. The Appliance Approval issued by Transport Canada comprises several Technical Standard Orders (TSO), including TSO-C113, TSO-C115b, TSO-C129a and TSO-C165. The Cockpit 4000 includes two integrated avionics computers (IAC), two up-front control panels and six multi-function displays.
CMC is on schedule to deliver the first cockpit avionics suite in the fourth-quarter of this year for the HBC T-6B Texan trainer aircraft. CMC received the order in November 2008 for the first 35 production aircraft after completing all necessary program requirements.
