DAC International Provides GDC64 Solution For Bombardier Dash-8

Allows iPad Apps to Utilize Real Time Data

DAC International has received certification for its GDC64 Tablet to Aircraft Interface Unit (TAIU) on the Bombardier Dash-8 aircraft. Fokker Services in the Netherlands assisted with the certification and will be responsible for the certification on aircraft.

This certification allows the iPad EFB solution on the Dash-8 to be connected through the GDC64 TAIU and its ARINC 429 bus to the Flight Management System (FMS) as well as to the aircraft power. The ARINC 429 data from the FMS will allow iPad applications (Apps) to utilize real time data and enhance cockpit capabilities.
The Fokker Services EFB for iPad Solution is EASA certified (Class 2 Type B), requires no expensive ICT infrastructure and will be charged during all phases of flight. Easy installation ensures aircraft can be converted with very limited downtime.

A Norwegian based operator is the launch Dash-8 customer for the EFB solution for iPad with GDC64 connection and it is expected to be installed on more than 40 aircraft within the operator’s fleet consisting of all Dash-8 types. Due to its design, the GDC64 TAIU is suitable for use on a wide range of aircraft.

The GDC64 connection developed by DAC International is specifically designed as an aircraft interface device to give the iPad or any tablet a broad range of aircraft data without additional cumbersome Wi-Fi devices.  You simply plug your iPad into conveniently located connectors in any aircraft cockpit.
