ADDU Part Of Several Upgrades
Revue Thommen AG announced this week the selection and
installation of its AD32 Air Data Display Unit (ADDU) for the
upgrading of a fleet of six An-26 aircraft operated in Poland.
The upgrade program was completed by Aviation Service, Prague,
in late 2007. This fleet upgrade followed the installation of the
AD32 in an Antonov An-26 operated by the Slovakian Air Force, which
was the initial installation in an upgrade program that will be
extended into 2008.
In a related development, the Czech Air Force has also selected
the AD32 for the LET L410 avionics upgrade program. The first
aircraft in this program should be completed in the second Quarter
of 2008, with additional aircraft upgrades being completed
throughout the year.
Besides highly accurate altitude information with a maximum
scale error of +/- 3m (10ft) below 6096m (FL200), the AD32
significantly improves flight safety. The fully customized DO-178B
Level A certified ADDU features an integrated altitude alerter. In
the An-26 integration the Thommen ADDU provides air data
information to a Honeywell EGPWS and transponder.
