AgustaWestland Selects Meggitt Display
AgustaWestland selected a secondary flight display (SFD) from U.K.-based Meggitt Avionics for its AW101 medium lift, AW139 medium-sized, multi-role twin-engined and AB212 utility helicopters.
Meggitt's iSFD is its third generation solid-state secondary flight display. It shows critical flight data such as attitude, altitude, air speed and heading.
First introduced to the market in 1995 as a back-up to primary digital cockpits, Meggitt’s secondary flight display has been installed on more than 40 different aircraft programs. More than 5,000 are in service worldwide.
