IRVINE, Calif. The Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) has selected Thomas Global’s TFD-7000 Series flight displays for its Boeing 757 fleet. The TFD-7000 Series displays deliver cost-effective and low-risk display upgrade solution for Boeing 757, 767, and 737 aircraft.

According to the company, TFD-7000 Series displays are designed to provide a high-performance, cost-effective drop-in LCD retrofit to resolve critical issues around cathode ray tube (CRT) obsolescence while simultaneously increasing operational efficiency and providing a growth platform for new functionality.

Officials claim that TFD-7000 Series displays offer the only drop-in LCD solution available for Boeing 757, 767, and 737 Classic aircraft. The TFD-7000 Series utilizes the benefits of LCD technology in a proven solution to support emerging airspace requirements and to avoid extensive flight deck modification.

The TFD-7076/7066 LCD solution replaces legacy Collins Aerospace EDU-776/766 CRT displays currently installed on Boeing 757, 767, and 737 Classic flight decks. The company claims that the TFD-7076/7066 LCD displays are both interchangeable and intermixable with the existing legacy EDU-776/766 CRT displays.
