[Avionics Today 08-29-2016] DAC International has received certification from the Mexican Directorate General of Civil Aeronautics (DGAC) for the Part 25 Approved Model List (AML) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the Esterline CMA-6800 Display. The AML includes the Hawker 800/800XP/1000, Bombardier’s Challenger 601-3A/3R, Dash 8–100/200/300 and its 415 Superscooper, Cessna Citation 650, Dassault Falcon 900, Fokker 50 and the Gulfstream III.
“This will allow our Mexican customers the opportunity to install the new display and meet the applicable specifications for safe operation in accordance with the standards, procedures and regulations required by the DGAC,” said President of DAC International Cisco Hernandez.
The CMA-6800 Electronic Display system was designed to replace the aging Honeywell ED-800 Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) displays. DAC International partnered with Peregrine to complete the engineering, test and certification activity required for this new STC. DAC International is expecting to add additional aircraft types within the next few months to the AML list.
