Esterline CMC Electronics completes integrated cockpit deliveries for Turkish Air Force KT-1T trainer aircraft program

Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) has completed deliveries of its integrated Cockpit 4000 avionics suite to Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) for the Turkish Air Force 40-aircraft KT-1T trainer aircraft program.

The core avionics supplied by CMC for the KT-1T comprise two open architecture mission computers, a wide field of view SparrowHawk™ Head-Up Display (HUD), an up-front control panel (UFCP) and a stand-alone rear UFCP, as well as four multifunction displays. CMC also supplied the HUD camera, air data computer and a data transfer unit. The avionics suite features proven operational flight programs that integrate the aircraft sensors, radios and weapons systems to provide a wide range of navigation and mission requirements.

CMC President Greg Yeldon, stated: "By utilizing CMC's integrated avionics suite, the KT-1T trainer can emulate the advanced avionics found in today's fighter aircraft. We have supplied a system that employs the latest in cockpit management with the intended benefits of reducing cockpit overload and increasing mission efficiency. The final results are better trained pilots, who are trained more rapidly, at a cost that is far less than conventional training."

The KT-1T is based on the successful KT-1 turboprop trainer of which more than 100 aircraft have been delivered to the Republic of Korea Air Force. Its excellent handling qualities for all flight phases and superior performance, with low stall speed, spin recovery and advanced auto trim, make the KT-1T one of the best platforms for military pilot training.

Korea Aerospace Industries is the Republic of Korea's national aerospace company established in 1999 with the consolidation of Samsung Aerospace, Daewoo Heavy Industries and Hyundai Space and Aircraft. Its major products are the KT-1 basic trainer, T-50 advanced supersonic jet trainer, KUH Surion helicopter, aerostructures and the KOMPSAT satellite program.
