Helps Update Older Aircraft Capability Without A Complete
The Pentastar Aviation Maintenance and Design Team presented
Edsel B. Ford II, Owner, Pentastar Aviation, and Rick Maloney,
President and CEO, Pentastar Aviation with the first production run
articulating yoke mount (patent pending) for the C-130 aircraft.
The articulating yoke mount is being supplied to C-130 military
units in conjunction with the Esterline CMC Electronics' TacView
Electronic Flight Bag System.
"The presentation of the first production run articulating yoke
mount serial number 0001 means more than hitting a milestone or
internal company objective," said Tony Bailey, director of
maintenance operations, Pentastar Aviation. "It is
significant because of the enhanced safety and functionality it
brings to our military crew members who we are honored and
privileged to be able to support. The articulating yoke mount
allows the crew member to adjust the TacView® Portable Mission
Display to an optimum viewing angle during routine operations, move
it totally out of the way during ingress and egress, and collapse
it during extreme maneuvering." Bailey added.
"When combined with the TacView's (pictured
below) exceptional tactical capabilities and the demanding
environment, the military now has an inexpensive way to provide
tactical and safety awareness information to aging aircraft where
and how the crews need it without complete system retrofits and
extended down-time. Other units are also benefiting
from this and future plans include designs for other specific types
of aircraft," Bailey said.
Pentastar Aviation also developed an articulating yoke mount to
support the CMC Electronic's PilotView System in Gulfstream GII,
G-III, G-IV, GV, G400, G450, G500, G550, LearJet 45, and Dassault
FalconJet F50, F900, and F2000 aircraft with many more aircraft
types being added almost daily.
