CMC’s FMS Certified For A310

Esterline CMC Electronics’ (CMC) A310 flight management system (FMS) upgrade solution has received a supplemental type certificate (STC), issued by Transport Canada on December 6, 2013. The STC involves the installation of CMC’s ‘CMA-9000 FMS’ and ‘CMA-5024 Satellite-Based Augmentation System GPS Sensors’ on the Canadian Department of National Defence’s fleet of five CC-150 (A310) Polaris aircraft.  “The certification ushers in a new generation of airline FMS retrofits that bring operational efficiency and safety to aircraft, and many productive years of operation. It also marks the first time that an airline FMS was replaced with a more modern FMS, as an STC rather than an original equipment manufacturer programme,” said Jim Palmer, VP, aviation products, CMC.
