Barco’s flat-screen cockpit displays have performed well during flight tests of the newly upgraded An-124-100M-150, according to the Belgium-headquartered company. Installed in the world’s largest civil freighter, Barco’s smart displays were built into the aircraft’s cockpit by St. Petersburg-based Kotlin-Novator, the Russian system integrator.

The flight testing followed an extensive modernization program initiated by, among others, the Volga-Dnepr group, the principal provider of An-124 cargo services. As a result of the program, the aircraft can now perform flights all over the world without limitation.
