Why the Operator Selected MC2

- Esterline CMA-6800 Liquid Crystal Display: replaced the aircraft’s existing and now obsolete CRT display.
The resulting upgrade this commercial and air cargo operator new, more reliable displays, which also offers operational relief to the Dash-8’s minimum equipment list (MEL).
What the Operator Says
“Swapping out our old CRTs gives us the latest in technology, which helped us address our maintenance and obsolescence concerns, while at the same time being fairly straightforward.
