Worldwide distributor of avionics, test equipment, data converters and aviation supplies DAC INTERNATIONAL INC (DAC) has announced the renewal of its worldwide partnership agreement with Esterline Avionics Systems for the distribution of the Esterline CMA-6800 LCD Display and GPS sensor products.

A subsidiary of Aerospace Precision Holdings LP, DAC distributes both the Esterline CMA-6800 LCD Display Product and the CMA3024 GPS sensor product in aftermarket pursuits. DAC currently holds an approved model list (AML) supplemental type certificate (STC) that includes the Hawker 800/800xp/1000, Bombardier’s Challenger 601-3A/3R, Dash 8-100/200/300, 415 Superscooper, Cessna Citation 650, Dassault Falcon 900, Fokker 50 and the Gulfstream III. In addition, DAC has received a Sikorsky S76B/C STC for the Esterline CMA-6800 Display. The STC includes the S76C+ and S76C++ models.

The CMA-6800 Electronic LCD Display System was designed as a modern form, fit, and function replacement to the legacy Honeywell ED-800 Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) displays.

Currently, DAC is working on a Part 25 AML ADS-B STC for installation of dual Becker BXT6553 Transponders to meet the requirements of FAA AC20-16B (ADS-B Out). This STC will replace the Honeywell (Primus II) RCZ-85(X) Mode S Transponders with Becker BXT6553 transponders along with DAC-3024-ADS-B STC kit (includes CMA-3024 GNSSU as a position source).

DAC International’s President Cisco Hernandez said: “We are extremely pleased to continue our partnership with Esterline. We believe the current products offer our customers a cost-effective solution for both ageing ED-800s but also GPS products to meet the current ADS-B mandate.”
