IRVINE, California and SYDNEY, Australia: A major international cargo operator has selected Thomas Global’s TFD-7076 LCD displays from the TFD-7000 Series to replace the legacy cathode ray tube (CRT) Engine Indicating & Crew Alerting System (EICAS) displays remaining in the operator’s Boeing 767 flight decks, which had previously been retrofitted by Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (IS&S).
“We are honored to be selected by another internationally respected Boeing 767 operator,” said Thomas Global’s President & COO, David Barnes. “This award reinforces the TFD-7000’s position as a comprehensive flight deck LCD solution, or a standalone EICAS for B757/767 flight decks. In either case, the TFD-7000 enhances EICAS reliability, reduces lifecycle costs and eliminates the growing problems associated with obsolete CRT technology.”
The TFD-7000 Series is a drop-in replacement for all legacy CRT displays in Boeing 767, 757 and 737 flight decks. It also provides a standalone LCD solution for the CRT-based EICAS displays remaining in B757/767s installed with the IS&S flat-panel retrofit.
The TFD-7000 Series captures all the benefits of LCD technology, delivers dramatic operating efficiency and life-cycle cost improvements, and a growth platform for emerging airspace requirements. The drop-in design avoids major flight deck modifications, significantly reducing associated aircraft downtime and crew retraining costs.
The TFD-7076/7066 drop-in LCD solution replaces legacy Collins Aerospace EDU-776/766 CRT displays currently installed on Boeing 757, 767, and 737 Classic flight decks. Its inventive plug-and-play design means displays are both interchangeable and intermixable with the existing legacy EDU-776/766 CRT displays, are installable on overnights or at the gate, and require no flight or maintenance crew retraining. STC approvals have been received from FAA, EASA, Transport Canada, JCAB, ANAC and CAAC.
