CMC Electronics will perform a glass-cockpit upgrade of 15 BAE Systems Hawk trainers for the Finnish Air Force, the Canadian company said. Finnish company Patria, a defense and aerospace company, signed a deal with CMC that covers the adaptation of CMC Electronics’ Cockpit 4000 integrated avionics suite for the Hawk Mk51 trainer aircraft and a Hawk simulator. The upgrade includes CMC’s open-architecture mission computer, a Head-Up Display and Up-Front Control Panel, two 5×7-inch Multifunction Displays (one in each cockpit), and a HUD repeater for each aircraft. Patria currently supports a fleet of 49 BAE Systems Hawks for the Finnish Air Force, the majority of which were assembled by Patria. The company also has responsibility for maintaining the Hawks during their in-service life as well as performing modifications. For related news
