INGENIO Aerospace, a Montreal based developer of aircraft cockpit and cabin solutions, announced that Bell Textron has integrated INGENIO’s Cockpit Tablet Electronic Flight Bag into the CH-146 Griffon Limited Life Extension project for the Royal Canadian Air Force.
The Griffon Limited Life Extension (GLLE) program is an $800 million commitment by the Canadian government to extend the life of the RCAF’s fleet of 85 CH-146 Griffon helicopters through 2031. The GLLE program will cover the replacement of avionics systems, upgrading of cockpit displays, engine upgrades and integration of sensor systems.
INGENIO explains its compact, ruggedized and lightweight Cockpit Tablet Electronic Flight Bag provides a secure and robust mounting system for personal electronic devices while in flight.
“We are very pleased to have been selected by Bell Textron,” says James Bell, President and CEO, INGENIO Aerospace. “This is a major upgrade to a large fleet of proven rotorcraft. By facilitating access to tablets in flight, we are contributing directly to operational efficiency and pilot performance. We are proud to be part of Bell Textron’s vision of contributing to the readiness of our Canadian Armed Forces.”
