DAC International, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that the Federal Aviation Administration has granted Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) for the company’s GDC64 Tablet Aircraft Interface Unit (TAIU).
The GDC64 developed by DAC International feeds aircraft data to an iPad® without additional costly Wi-Fi devices. This unique interface product routes live data from aircraft sensors and systems to an iPad enabling a wide range of incremental functionality for the flight crew. Simply plug an iPad into conveniently located connectors in the cockpit to get data and power to keep the iPad fully charged during flight.
The Tablet Aircraft Interface Unit is applicable on corporate, regional and major airlines and rotorcraft.
In addition to the PMA approval, Apple® has certified the GDC64 hardware and the GDC64 iOS app, which is making its debut on the iTunes store.
“This will allow operators to now have access to a data library for use in a variety of apps as they become more available,” said General Manager of DAC International Francisco Hernandez. “In addition, the installer can now download the GDC64 app directly from iTunes to allow users to setup and configure ARINC 429 data for their installation.”
