Air Data Unit 3208 receives ETSO certification
Benefits for aircraft manufacturers
With ETSO certification, the product will no longer have to prove that it complies with the complementary requirements of each aircraft, which is a real plus point for aircraft manufacturers. "It cuts out additional steps, saving them precious time when they are going through the certification process for commercial aircraft and for military planes too," says Thomas Espaignet. Critical to flight safety, the air data unit measures aerodynamic data to determine aircraft altitude and speed. The next chapter in the ADU 3208 story is a helicopter version expected later this year.
*ETSO (European Technical Standard Order) certification is the reference standard for European and international certification.
