“We were delighted to have been part of the conceptualization and certification of the 50Dash4 program. Now that it’s a proven performer, the best future for the program is in the hands of a strong, full-service business aircraft MRO such as West Star,” Ken Goldsmith, Jr., managing director of Yankee Pacific Aerospace, said. The relationship goes back to 2006.
Canadian avionics house CMC Electronics will supply its integrated Cockpit 4000 suite for the 40 KT-1C basic trainers that Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) has sold to Turkey. The KT-1C is an upgraded, export version of the KT-1 that is already in service with the Republic of Korea Air Force. The KT-1C was the first application for the Cockpit 4000 avionics suite: KAI selected CMC for the prototype installation in January 2003.
