Thales’ Air Data Unit (ADU) 3208 has achieved European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification, the company announced on 12 January.

The ADU 3208 has received European Technical Standard Order (ETSO) certification from EASA, automatically qualifying the product for Federal Aviation Administration certification under bilateral agreements between the two agencies.

With this certification, the product no longer needs to prove that it complies with the complementary requirements of each aircraft. As a result, it saves time during the certification process for commercial and military aircraft types.

The unit measures aerodynamic data to determine aircraft altitude and speed.

A helicopter version of the ADU 3208 is expected later this year.
