Thales at the AMC-AEEC in Orlando, Florida
Thales was present at the Avionics Maintenance Conference (AMC) and the Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC), two conferences jointly organized by ARINC* from April 22nd to 25th 2013 in Orlando, Florida.
This annual event attracted a high-level international audience of industry experts to discuss avionics standards and maintenance issues. Over 700 people from airlines, airframers, Maintenance Repair Organizations (MROs) and suppliers attended.
Thales welcomed the conference delegates in its hospitality suite where it showcased recent solutions and held demonstrations. A cockpit demonstrator with future Sesar/NextGen capabilities (ASAS, DTAXI, I4D, Eco Take off) was on display. The TopWings Electronic Flight Bag offering, an integrated customizable end-to-end EFB solution comprising all the aspects from software to services, drew a great deal of attention. Additionally, the IESI (Integrated Electronic Standby Instrument) and ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitter) offerings were showcased.
Jean-Françis Manfroy, Avionics Services Worldwide Marketing Director at Thales says, “The annual AMC/AEEC conference is a key place for Thales to meet with a great number of customers and industry players in the same place. Numerous technical side meetings were held at the Thales suite and were highly appreciated by the customers.”
Thierry Diore, Avionics Services Worldwide Technical Support Director at Thales, adds that “Thales participates actively in the objectives of reliability increase and operating cost reduction all year round. The AMC is the place to showcase the work done by Thales Avionics in the maintenance domain and exchange on a variety of subjects with the airline community during the general session. This year’s edition was positive for Thales.”
