Innovative Solutions & Support and ABX Air, the former air arm of Airborne Express that now operates independently, have teamed up to offer operators of 757s and 767s a flat panel display retrofit. The two achieved an FAA STC for the conversions. Under a partnership, ABX will provide installation and pilot training while IS&S will supply the LCDs and STC. According to the companies, retrofit of CRT primary flight/navigation display systems with the flat panels can be accomplished "in less than four days." Geoffrey Hedrick, IS&S chairman and CEO, said, "Until now, the widespread adoption of flat panel technology has been limited by the investment and downtime required to successfully retrofit outdated flight decks."

Will this be a full glass cockpit or are they just replacing the CRT's with LCD's?


Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

Wow, that's a pretty nice looking cockpit...looks 738-ish! Would be interesting to see how much that mod costs, and if it's feasable for the many other 756's flying.
