Cobham to supply oxygen system for Boeing T-X

14th May 2019 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cobham has been selected by Boeing to supply the complete oxygen system for its T-X trainer aircraft, the company announced on 9 May 2019.

The system is comprised of Cobham’s SureSTREAM oxygen concentrator, pilot breathing regulators and a back-up oxygen system with fill valve. 

SureSTREAM improves oxygen delivery and pilot safety by automatically adjusting the concentration of oxygen delivered to the pilot during flight. The system meets the oxygen system operating requirements for the Advanced Pilot Training Programme specifications for the T-X trainer. 

Jim Barber, president of Cobham Mission Systems, said: ‘Cobham has invested private venture funding, which uniquely positions us in the market to provide a compliant oxygen system that meets T-X requirements.’
