Austrian AB212s get new caution panels
The Austrian Air Force’s AB212 helicopter fleet will be fitted with AEM's MCP01 next-generation master caution panel.
The plug-and-play replacement of the panel will help extend the service life of the fleet.
AEM has produced a unique variant of the MCP01 specifically for the Austrian fleet, incorporating the customer’s NVIS-compatibility requirements. The company will also provide spares and maintenance capabilities.
The master caution panel features high-reliability LED lighting, reduced weight, an optional integrated event recorder, and is tested and qualified to DO-160G.
All product deliveries and installation are scheduled for completion before the end of Q3 2019.
