Thomas Global Systems' legacy of providing practical flight deck display upgrade solutions for commercial, military and business aircraft continues with the selection of its TFD-4100 drop-in CRT-to-LCD solution by a prominent operator of Bombardier Challenger 604s for its Pro Line 4 avionics-equipped fleet.
The TFD-4100 solution leverages high-performance AMLCD technology, a proven A-D software core and seamless integration of LCD components into the Collins Pro Line 4 EFD-4077 CRT display, delivering significant reliability and life cycle cost improvements while avoiding a major flight deck modification and associated aircraft installation, downtime and crew retraining costs.
A true plug-and-play solution, the TFD-4100 provides a practical and efficient resolution to critical obsolescence of the EFD-4077 CRT display across Bombardier Challenger 604, Dassault Falcon 50EX/2000/2000EX, Gulfstream G100/G200 and Saab 2000 aircraft. Jetstream Aviation Capital, the largest global owner of Saab 2000 aircraft, has already selected the TFD-4100 LCD flight display for its Saab 2000 flight decks.
“The selection of our TFD-4100 solution by a respected operator of Challenger 604s highlights the significant reliability and life cycle cost benefits offered by this latest in drop-in LCD displays, while addressing critical CRT display obsolescence,” says president and COO David Barnes. “We are pleased to be rapidly growing the family of aircraft equipped with our proven and practical display solutions.”
The TFD-4100 display for Saab 2000, Bombardier Challenger 604, Dassault Falcon 2000, 2000EX and 50EX, and Gulfstream G100/G200 aircraft is the sixth in the Thomas Global product family of drop-in CRT-to-LCD replacement solutions, including the TFD-7076/-77, TFD-8601 and EFI-650 LCD flight displays currently operating on commercial, regional and business aircraft worldwide.
