Japan Airlines (JAL) has signed with Thomas Global Systems to equip the airline’s Boeing 767-300/300ER fleet with the TFD-7000 Series drop-in liquid crystal display (LCD) flight displays.
The JAL award follows TFD-7000 Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval from the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB).
TFD-7000 Series displays provide a high-performance, cost-effective LCD retrofit that resolves critical issues around cathode ray tube (CRT) obsolescence, increases operational efficiency, and provides a growth platform for new functionality.
“We are honored that Japan Airlines has chosen our TFD-7000 Series to upgrade their 767 flight decks,” said Angus Hutchinson, CEO of Thomas Global. “We look forward to providing JAL with the dependable and high-integrity technology, service and support our customers and partners have come to expect from Thomas Global.”
TFD-7000 Series displays offer the only drop-in LCD solution available for Boeing 757/767 and 737 Classic aircraft. The TFD-7000 Series retrofit captures all the benefits of LCD technology in a proven solution with a growth platform for new functionality to support emerging airspace requirements, all while avoiding an extensive flight deck modification with its associated aircraft downtime and crew retraining costs.
The TFD-7076/7066 LCD solution replaces legacy Collins Aerospace EDU-776/766 CRT displays currently installed on Boeing 757, 767, and 737 Classic flight decks. The TFD-7076/7066 LCD displays are both interchangeable and intermixable with the existing legacy EDU-776/766 CRT displays, are installable on overnights or at the gate, and are fully compatible with the EFIP-701 and EAP-701/3 Boeing symbol generators. STC approvals have been received from FAA, EASA, Transport Canada, JCAB, ANAC and CAAC.
