Boeing_767_Tanker_413eSydney tech provider Thomas Global Systems has won approval from Japan’s civil aviation authority to sell its latest LCD flight display for Boeing 767s.

The innovative plug-and-play TFD-7000 Series allows operators to enjoy some of the latest technology in the ageing aircraft without having to make major flight deck modifications.

It comes after the company received FAA approval for the same product last year, allowing it to supply Delta.


COO David Barnes said, “The TFD-7000 Series is designed to bring new life to 757/767 and 737 Classic flight decks practically and efficiently.

“We are pleased to now provide operators in Japan with a high-performance and cost-effective LCD retrofit that resolves CRT obsolescence, increases operational efficiency and provides a growth platform.”

The Japan Civil Aviation Bureau granted the Australian company’s product a Supplemental Type Certificate in what will be seen as a major win for the company based in both Sydney and California.

The Boeing 767 took its maiden flight almost 40 years ago but is still operated by a number of major carriers worldwide.


Thomas Global is the only Australian company to have avionics products designed and manufactured for a major commercial aircraft flight deck in recent history.
