Major North American operator to upgrade Boeing 757 and 767 fleets with Thomas Global’s TFD-7000 LCD Displays

IRVINE, California and SYDNEY, Australia; August 29, 2018 – Thomas Global’s TFD-7000 Series flight displays have been selected by a major North American operator for installation in its fleets of Boeing 757 and 767 aircraft. The new displays leverage Thomas Global’s pioneering Adaptive Display Architecture™ CRT-to-LCD technology and follow the company’s introduction of the technology across a range of other commercial aircraft types. Installation will begin in early 2019.

“The selection of TFD-7000 displays by a significant operator of Boeing 757s and 767s highlights the significant benefits offered by these new displays, including lower life cycle costs, greater reliability and growth capability – while also addressing critical CRT display obsolescence,” said Angus Hutchinson, CEO of Thomas Global. “We are pleased to be rapidly growing the family of aircraft equipped with these new displays” he added.

The TFD-7000 Series displays are plug-and-play active matrix LCD replacements for legacy Rockwell Collins EDU-776C/D and EDU-766C/D cathode ray tube (CRT) displays installed in Boeing 757, 767 and 737 Classic flight decks. The new displays feature advanced growth capabilities to support a range of future functionality.

“The TFD-7000 Series has been designed to provide Boeing 757, 767 and 737 operators with significantly more reliable flight deck displays at a reduced cost, and to extend the life of existing flight decks. Thomas Global is doing everything we can to help operators equip with a state-of-the-art, cost-effective solution to CRT obsolescence,” said Mr. Hutchinson.

Developed with input from leading operators, the TFD-7000 Series displays significantly reduce maintenance costs compared to keeping the legacy CRT displays, and eliminate the obsolescence threat and last-time buy commitments associated with CRT technology. In addition, the TFD-7000 Series helps operators to avoid more extensive and expensive full flight deck retrofits – while sustaining aircraft operations and meeting operational requirements. The new displays offer quick plug-and-play conversion, are fully interchangeable and intermixable with existing CRT displays and require no changes to flight deck wiring or panels and no crew retraining.
