Cobham to provide cockpit avionics for Skylander commuter aircraft

Cobham is pre-selected to provide the complete avionics suite for the new Sky Aircraft twin turboprop SK105 Skylander commuter aircraft, due for first delivery in 2012.

Cobham will integrate a full suite of avionics for the SK105's flight deck, including large- format synthetic vision flight displays, advanced flight management capability, integrated hazard alerting, communication and navigation radios, and a digital autopilot with 3-D autoflight capability and automatic stall / overspeed protection.

The twin-turboprop Skylander will carry up to 19 passengers or 2.7 tons of cargo. It has been designed as a robust aircraft able to operate in extreme environments. It is an economical and versatile aircraft, with potential for commuter, freight and special mission roles such as medical evacuation, airborne surveillance and search and rescue.

"Cobham is delighted to join Sky Aircraft in bringing this new aircraft to market," said Eiji Kawaishi, Vice President of Cobham Aerospace Communications. "Cobham's experience in ruggedised, flexible avionics with the largest range of supported temperatures and climates is a perfect match for the wide variety of Skylander roles and capabilities, from commuter to military transport to special missions, especially in extreme environments."

"The SK-105 Skylander is designed to provide the highest dispatch reliability and mission flexibility along with the lowest total cost of ownership for both civil and military operators," said Sky Aircraft CEO Serge Bitboul. "The Cobham avionics suite supports these goals with industry-leading capabilities and value, and its future-proof open architecture promises decades of growth and supportability."
