C&L Aviation Group will become a distributor of Thomas Global Systems’ TFD-8601 upgrade for legacy EFD-86 cathode ray tube (CRT) displays under a new agreement. The TFD-8601 serves as an analog-to-digital upgrade using a liquid crystal display for a number of regional and business jet types, including the Saab 340, Embraer Brasilia, Challenger 600 series, Dassault Falcon 10/50/20/100, Gulfstream/Astra 1125, and Hawker 800.
A plug-and-play system for existing CRTs, the TFD-8601 electronic flight instrument system enables operators to make an instant conversion without changing an aircraft’s cockpit panels or wiring.
“Thomas Global is a premier manufacturer of aviation electronic systems and we are excited to provide CRT display solutions and long-term value to our customers on both the regional and corporate side of aviation,” said C&L Aerospace senior v-p of sales Martin Cooper. “We are honored that Thomas Global has selected us as a valued partner ensuring that airlines, MROs, and corporate operators worldwide have access to their products.”
