L-3's GH-3900 Electronic Standby Instrument System receives TSO

L-3 Aviation Products (AP) announced today that the FAA has granted its Avionics Systems business a Technical Standard Order (TSO) for the GH-3900™ Electronic Standby Instrument System (ESIS). The GH-3900 has been selected by several OEMs as standard equipment aboard such aircraft as the LearJet 70/75 series, the Cessna Citation Ten and the Embraer KC-390. Additionally, Rockwell Collins has selected the GH-3900 ESIS for its Pro Line Fusion® Flight Deck, which will be supplied to multiple new aircraft platforms and customers.

"It has been 15 years since we introduced the popular GH-3000 ESIS to the market," said Larry Riddle, vice president of business development for L-3 Avionics Systems. "The next-generation GH-3900 builds on that success with even more configuration options, improved interconnectivity and a reduced footprint at a lower price point."

Designed to Level A software and hardware standards, the GH-3900 ESIS is capable of satisfying airworthiness requirements for almost any transport category fixed- or rotary-wing aircraft. Rendering all the important cues on a sunlight-readable, three-inch display, the instrument is a more precise and information-rich standby than traditional analog instruments. With a customizable layout, the GH-Series standby instruments can be modified to fit a wide range of primary systems, giving pilots a familiar reference for flying the aircraft. Hardware enhancements include a variety of air data and heading input selections, as well as optional built-in accelerometers and a non-ITAR Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible solution.
