Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing Group (AEM) has purchased Eagle Audio Systems. The acquisition of the Calgary based aircraft audio designer includes its flagship P139-HD digital audio system and custom avionics consoles for the AS350/H125 aircraft, in addition to dimmer power supplies, audio mixers and power converters. Terms of the transaction mean that included in the purchase are Eagle Audio's FAA, EASA, ANAC and TCCA STCs on multiple airframes including the AS350, AS355, Bell 204, 205, 206, 212, 214 and 412, EC135 and BK117 platforms.
“The Eagle Audio assets fit well within AEM's skillsets and capabilities and we are looking forward to supporting the existing customer base while introducing the product line to our varied and diverse global customers,” says Tony Weller, director of sales and marketing at AEM. “This is a powerful, flexible digital audio system and our customers will benefit from our investment in further development and certification of the product suite.”
“We've listened to our customers and are providing a solution to meet their audio requirements,” adds Brian Wall, CEO of AEM. ”The aerospace sector is well-versed with the Eagle Audio products and can expect the same high quality and support previously provided by Eagle.”
Eagle Audio has developed its Generation II digital audio system since acquiring it from Geneva Aviation in 2013 and it is now able to support 18 headsets, 30 transceivers and 48 control panels.
“Developing the Generation II audio system has enabled us to provide a product that is second-to-none for our customer base, a relationship that we put first and foremost with anything we do,” concludes Mike O'Reilly, CEO of Eagle Copters Ltd. “With our focus on helicopter leasing, sales and MRO, it was time for our audio division to move to a fully dedicated organisation.”
