European turboprop manufacturer ATR has selected the PilotView electronic flight bag from CMC Electronics of Canada (Hall 3, D7) as a standard option for new ATR 42 and 72 airliners and as a retrofit for in-service aircraft.
“This selection by ATR is a solid endorsement of our PilotView’s capability to deliver the cockpit information system capabilities, feature growth and long-term support that OEMs expect,” says Cathy Bain, CMC Electronics’ vice-president of marketing and sales.
PilotView is now certificated on at least 23 aircraft types, including the Gulfstream GV, Bombardier Global Express, Boeing 737 and Embraer 170 and 190. It is also the sole manufacturer’s option on the Dassault, Gulfstream, Pilatus and Sino Swearingen ranges of business aircraft.
PilotView has also been selected by Rockwell Collins as part of its Cabin Electronic System for the Bombardier Global 5000 and Global Express XRS business jets.
The company is also offering EFB capability to the military market in the form of its new TacView portable mission display.
On show at Paris for the first time, TacView is a compact, rugged display suitable for use in combat aircraft and military transports and helicopters.
Besides its “paperless cockpit” EFB functionality, the unit can be used to display tactical datalink information and target-pod, night-vision and weather imagery. It is compact enough to be mounted on the flight-deck side panel, the control yoke or even the knee of the pilot.
The bright, 5in by 7in sunlight-readable display is controlled in a variety of ways – a slideaway keyboard, touchscreen or bezel keys.
CMC has announced a number of successes across its product range. Its SureSight M-series enhanced vision sensor has been certificated by the US FAA for installation in the Pilatus PC-12 business turboprop.
