DAC International Partners with Cathay Pacific Airways on GEN-X e-enabling program
DAC International, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, is collaborating with Cathay Pacific Airways on its e-Enabled Aircraft Program. The Federal Aviation Administration approved the Supplemental Type Certificate for the Cathay Pacific e-Enabled Aircraft Program, and DAC International is providing the Gen-X e-Enabling AID device, selected by Cathay Pacific Airways and Dragonair for their fleet-wide aircraft implementation. The second generation Gen-X system was specifically developed by DAC International to meet the stringent requirements of the Cathay Pacific program. The system will be installed in the flight deck and cabin to support a wide range of applications including: system interfaces to the aircraft navigation systems, EFB functionality for charts and aircraft documentation, communication system interfaces for text messaging, maintenance support, e-Commerce applications as well as cabin applications for in-flight services.
