GAMCO and CMC Electronics Selected By Dubai Air Wing

For C-130 Hercules L100-30 Cockpit Avionics Upgrade

CMC Electronics has been selected by the Dubai Air Wing as the avionics systems integrator for their C-130 Hercules, L100-30 cockpit upgrade. CMC Electronics is teamed with Gulf Aircraft Maintenance Company (GAMCO), the prime contractor for the project.

CMC Electronics will supply its CMA-900 Flight Management System (FMS) as the core of the upgrade, while GAMCO is responsible for all Program Depot Maintenance (PDM) inspection requirements, a new cargo handling system, aircraft painting and the installation of the cockpit upgrade systems in full coordination with CMC Electronics.

The Dubai Air Wing configuration is a multi-sensor system based on a fully integrated dual CMA-900 FMS, providing effectively 100 per cent dispatch reliability anywhere in the world, and seamless navigation from take-off to final approach. This upgrade will allow the Dubai Air Wing's aircraft to meet all P-RNAV (precision area navigation), flight data recording and TAWS (Terrain Avoidance Warning System) requirements.  The CMA-900 features a color, liquid-crystal multi-function display and includes CMC Electronics' GPS sensor.

"We look forward to working closely with the Dubai Air Wing and GAMCO on this very important modernization program," said Mr. Bruce Bailey, CMC Electronics' vice president, commercial aviation.

GAMCO General Manager Mr. Saif Al Mughairy said, "We are delighted to be working with CMC Electronics and are confident that our reputation for quality and service will be reinforced by this upgrade program for the Dubai Air Wing."

According to Dubai Air Wing Commander Col. Rashid K. Balhaul, "We are looking forward to realizing the many economic, operational and, in particular, safety-related benefits provided by the upgrade of our C-130 aircraft."
