AgustaWestland Upgrades AW119 With L-3 Trilogy ESI
AgustaWestland is upgrading new production AW119 cockpit avionics with the Trilogy Electronic Standby Instrument (ESI).
Trilogy ESI, produced by L-3 Aviation Products, can be recharged by the helicopter electrical system without removal, according to the company. Speaking at the Paris Air Show, L-3's vice president of sales, Ralph DeMarco, said he believes the company's ESI is gaining popularity because of a manufacturing shift to all-glass cockpits.
The upgrades will be included on both military and civilian variants of new production AW119s.
