Crane Aerospace & Electronics selects Topcast Aviation as authorized distributor to APAC market
Crane Aerospace & Electronics has appointed Hong Kong-based Topcast Aviation Supplies, a leader in the sales, distribution and maintenance of aircraft parts and systems, as an authorized distributor for the A320 Crane Landing Gear Control Interface Unit (LGCIU). Under the terms of the agreement, Topcast will serve as the exclusive distributor for the Crane LGCIU in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, including China, Korea, India, Thailand and Australia. Crane’s A320 LGCIU senses and controls the position of the landing gear, landing gear doors, and cargo doors, and provides health monitoring status. The Crane LGCIU provides higher reliability and improved fault detection and fault isolation benefits, reducing maintenance costs and improving aircraft dispatch rates. The Crane LGCIU has been standard on all A320 family aircraft produced since October 2010. Topcast will offer the enhanced LGCIU as a retrofit upgrade to customers with aircraft produced prior to October 2010.
