Thursday, 24 October 2019

Swiss avionics manufacturer Thommen Aircraft Equipment Ltd. is pleased to announce that Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) Xi'an Aircraft Company Commercial Aircraft Co., Ltd. (XCAC) has selected the Stratotimer next-generation digital aircraft clock for its MA700 twin-engine medium-range turboprop airliner.

Stratotimer is Thommen's latest multifunction onboard time management system, featuring a smart and modular design with extensive configurability to support numerous cockpit modernizations and forward-fit programs on fixed and rotary-wing aircraft. The MA700 will be manufactured at the XCAC plant in Xi'an, China, and is expected to make its first flight in 2020 and to enter into serial production in 2022. To provide the best level of service, Thommen is partnering with its exclusive Stratotimer distributor for the MA700 program, East Wonder International, Inc., and its Chinese branch for in-country sales, supply and support.

"We are extremely proud to be a part of the MA700 program, and we are convinced that Stratotimer will bring a totally new user experience to the future MA700 pilots, thanks to a fully digital user-friendly HMI. Our clock offers the latest TFT display technology with best-in-class sunlight readability from every viewing angle and has the largest useable screen area available on the market today", said Thomas Terschlusen, Thommen's Director of Sales & Marketing. "We would like to thank AVIC and XCAC for their trust and confidence and we look forward to the MA700's maiden flight with our Stratotimer installed onboard."

The Stratotimer includes GPS synchronization, ARINC 429 and USB interfaces, discrete in and outputs, programmable timers, configurable aural alarms, user-settable color schemes, automatic brightness and day/night/NVIS adjustments, as well as an S-Video port for external cameras or sensors. Stratotimer also comes as a direct form, fit and function replacement for numerous legacy clocks installed on a large quantity of air transport aircraft.
