INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS & SUPPORT ANNOUNCES FAA CERTIFICATION OF ITS FLAT PANEL DISPLAY SYSTEM (FPDS) ON CLASSIC B737
24 Hour Installation and Return Service Available
Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (IS&S) (NASDAQ:ISSC) announced today that the Company has received
Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) Supplemental Type Certification (STC) of its
Flat Panel Display
System (FPDS) for use on Classic B-737 aircraft.
The STC covers the B737-300/-400/-500 series aircraft and provides B-737 operators with a low cost, low down time retrofit of their flight deck avionics with a modern pilot and copilot suite of high resolution multi-color LCD flat panel displays. Operators will benefit from improved dispatch reliability, logistics savings, and adaptability to future airspace requirements.
“Working with customers, we continue to expand our Flat Panel product line to additional aircraft types,” said Shahram Askarpour, president for IS&S. “With the launch of this program late last year, IS&S is able to deliver another certified program in to the market quickly and efficiently to support increasing customer demand for integrated avionics offerings.”
The receipt of the STC positions IS&S to pursue the more than 1,000 Classic B-737 aircraft with the need for Flat Panel Display System upgrades. The cockpit upgrade of the B737 replaces aging flight instruments and includes the installation of an Electronic Standby Instrument System (ESIS). The FPDS utilizes a common 10.4-inch display architecture that IS&S developed and certified, and that IS&S has installed on more than 160 B-757 and B-767 aircraft. “What makes this installation revolutionary is the short aircraft down time, while removing 10 net LRU’s and approximately 100 pounds, which can be less than 24 hours,” added Askarpour. The company will provide a complete turn key installation including installation at remote sites.
