Chinese certification for airline cabin door monitoring

AD Aerospace : 29 July, 2008  (New Product)
CabinVu and CabinVu-123 from AD Aerospace for airline cabin door surveillance and monitoring has been approved for use by the Chinese Civil Aviation Authority
AD Aerospace has obtained a Validation of Supplemental Type Certificate (VSTC) from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for its CabinVu and CabinVu-123 Cockpit Door Monitoring Systems on Boeing 737 aircraft. These systems enhance the security of a passenger airliner by helping to protect the cockpit from Hijack and Air Rage incidents by providing the pilots with a live view of the area outside the flight deck door.

"Gaining A VSTC from the CAAC is a huge achievement and significant step for AD Aerospace," said Mike Horne, Managing Director, AD Aerospace Ltd. "This allows us access to the growing and vibrant market in mainland China and enables us to help Chinese airlines to improve the safety and security offering they provide to their passengers and crew."

This VSTC covers the entire Boeing 737 family of aircraft using installation designs produced by Aircraft Engineering and Installation Services Inc of Orlando, Florida, USA.

CabinVu and CabinVu-123, which has less LRUs, lower weight and simplified installation than earlier systems, provide pilots with a forward looking, clear and unobstructed view of the area outside the cockpit door and in the adjacent galleys from their usual seated positions. A series of cameras are linked to either one or two monitors and associated controllers within easy reach of the pilots for ease and comfort of use.

With the real time video provided by the system the pilots can visually identify anyone requesting entry and take appropriate action, should an incident arise. This is in line with recommendations from ICAO Annex 6, EUROCAE ED-123 and provides compliance with EU-OPS 1.1255 Sub Part S, FAA 14 CFR 121.313(k) and 14 CFR 121.584 (a).

FlightVu euipment has been or is being installed on aircraft for Boeing, airBaltic, Austrian Airlines, GECAS, ILFC, Neos, Privilege, Orient Thai, Comair, Hing Kong Express, Hing Kong Airways, bmi, British Airways, JetBlue, Thomsonfly, Air Asia, Corsair, easyJet, SkeyEurope, Air Europa, Germania, TUIfly, Sama, MyTravel and others.
