Flight Display Systems (Booth No. 5912) has focused its booth to show off its Smart Cabin cabin management, in-flight entertainment and wireless system for helicopters.

The key to Smart Cabin’s robustness, according to the company, is its next-generation JetJukebox, which allows passengers or pilots to use any personal electronic device to control cabin components wirelessly. JetJukebox also streams as many as eight different movies simultaneously, as well as music and flight progress via moving map. The hardware dimensions are 6.35 by 1.95 by 9.7 inches, and the unit weighs just three pounds. It retails for $29,500, according to company marketing director Dave Dodson.

“This is the leading edge of aircraft wireless technology,” said David Gray, president of Flight Display Systems. “When you mesh wireless with our maturing cabin management systems and IFE components, you get a sophisticated system.”
