DAC, Esterline CMC Sign Distribution Deal
On Dec. 18, DAC International, a Greenwich AeroGroup Company, reached a multi-year distribution agreement with Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC), a Montreal-based designer and manufacturer of flight management, navigation and other high-tech avionics systems.
Under the agreement, DAC will serve as an international distributor of CMC’s new CMA-6800 LCD displays, helping promote the product and arrange maintenance and other after-market support for the units.
The CMA-6800 LCD display is designed to smoothly replace aging CRT units in older business jets. It weighs less, consumes less power and offers greatly reduced maintenance costs compared to the increasingly obsolete displays it replaces. The units use existing symbol generators and EFIS controllers, and do not require aircrew retraining.
Esterline CMC Electronics is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bellevue, Wash.-based Esterline Corp., and has operations in Montreal, Quebec, in Ottawa, Ontario and in Chicago, Ill.
