COLUMBUS, Ohio & YOKOSUKA, Japan & BANGKOK & AREQUIPA, Peru & ROVANIEMI, Finland - Oct. 2, 2015 - PRLog -- Spirit Aeronautics, a world class leader in aircraft services, has developed a unique avionics upgrade program that modernizes military C-21A aircraft that will meet the demands of worldwide flight operations in both military and civil airspace.
“We have some smart people who have teamed up with some of the brightest avionics OEM engineers to come up with an innovative and cost-effective solution to modernize the C-21A aircraft,” said Tony Bailey, President & COO. “We are excited to present this unique solution to C-21A operators because it not only increases aircraft systems reliability, it meets all of the requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) mandates.”
“This is a tremendous opportunity for the military that is constantly looking for ways to maintain fleet readiness and provide crews with enhanced safety while extending the life of aging aircraft,” said Rick Ochs, Chairman & CEO. “This solution allows aircrews access to enhanced situational awareness, reduced aircrew workload and increased flight operational capabilities while delivering cost conscious taxpayers the value they deserve. It is a great solution for military and taxpayers alike by providing a cost-effective way to extend the life of the aircraft without the need to source a more expensive replacement aircraft.”
