Airbus Helicopters and Esterline CMC (Booth No. 1414) have spent more than a decade collaborating on helicopter avionics, culminating in new certifications of avionics and airframes announced at Heli-Expo 2014. On display for the announcement were examples of Esterline’s CMA-9000 flight management system and CMA-5024 GPS landing system sensor in the Airbus EC175.

“Well over 1,000 CMC flight management systems are in service on Airbus helicopters,” said Greg Yeldon, president of Esterline CMC. “The navigation system on the EC175 is the latest example of this collaboration.”

The IFR certified EC175 is equipped with GNSS, WAAS SBAS GPS and Cat 1 localizer and complies with published CNS/ATM navigational mandates. It is also ready for new capabilities, such as the ground-based augmentation system.
