Duncan Aviation recently modified a Cabin Management System (CMS) for a Gulfstream G550, resolving an issue with obsolete parts without the need to replace all the switch panels or provide major alterations to all of the drink rails.
Using a new distribution system for the entertainment portion of the CMS allowed the customer to upgrade to newer, more advanced High-Definition (HD) monitors, High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) panels and touchscreen controllers.
“This modification gives the customer custom entertainment options such as streaming video, HDMI Ports, and touchscreens, as well as control of the cabin through iPad’s remote application,” says Senior Avionics Sales Rep Dennis Kruse.
“It’s an ideal solution for customers who aren’t ready to replace veneer/woodwork and drinkrails but want access to high-definition entertainment content with the look and feel of a new CMS.
“Not only do customers get a customizable In-Flight Entertainment system, but they’ll also get new equipment that is fully supported and has a warranty”.
