AUSTIN, Texas, March 25, 2013 – DAC International, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that the Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) of its sister company Atlantic Aero, issued a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the installation of DAC’s GDC64 Tablet Aircraft Interface Unit (TAIU) on the Bombardier Learjet 60 model.
The GDC64 developed by DAC International is specifically designed as an aircraft interface device to feed aircraft data to an iPad® or any tablet without additional costly Wi-Fi devices. This unique interface product routes live data from aircraft sensors and systems to tablets enabling a wide range of incremental functionality for the flight crew. You simply plug your iPad or Tablet into connectors conveniently located in the cockpit to get data and power to keep tablets fully charged during flight.
“We are excited regarding the possibility this product offers,” said General Manager of DAC International Francisco Hernandez. “With this product in the cockpit, operators will be able to fully leverage the benefits of using today’s Apps as well as future ones being developed to reduce cockpit workload and increase crew information and awareness.”
In addition to the Bombardier Learjet 60 model, DAC International recently received European approval for the GDC64 on the Bombardier Dash-8.
