VivaAerobus has chosen to equip its new fleet of 52 Airbus A320s with a series of data acquisition, aircraft condition monitoring and wireless data transfer solutions from Teledyne Controls.
The Mexico-based airline has opted for Teledyne’s Flight Data Interface Management Unit (FDIMU) for data acquisition and the Wireless GroundLink Comm+ flexible communication solution for its ability to support multiple functions both now and in the future.
Not only will the new system meet the airline’s current need for downloading Quick Access Recording (QAR) and Aircraft Condition Monitoring System (ACMS) data, it can also meet the airline’s future requirements, including the full integration and connectivity of tablet devices such as electronic flight bags (EFBs) for flight crews, which are being discussed for implementation during 2015.
Juan Carlos Zuazua, chief executive officer of VivaAerobus, commented, “We see Teledyne Controls not as a supplier but as a strategic partner in helping us to further enhance the flight safety and operational effectiveness of our fleet, and in protecting our investment as we look to integrate new technologies and thinking in the future.”
