Universal Avionics has partnered with MD Helicopters, Inc. in a 2-year program to design and build a Next Generation flight deck for the MD Explorer helicopter.

Both companies are dedicated to meeting customers’ high expectations for quality, service and support. The Next Generation MD Explorer is no exception; Universal Avionics and MD Helicopters have joined to bring some of the most advanced technology in the market into the flight deck of the redesigned helicopter. The partnership between Universal Avionics and MD Helicopters represents an ideal model for building the next generation of helicopter flight decks.

Specifically tailored for the low altitude operations of rotorcraft, the new flight deck features:
  • 2 or 3 10.4” diagonal landscape high-resolution LCD displays

  • Separate EFIS Control Display Unit (ECDU) for user control

  • “Point and click” display control using collective-mounted Cursor Slew Switch

  • Reference Set Panel for SPD / HDG / ASEL selections

  • Secure Digital (SD) Card Server for EFIS databases

  • Remote Data Concentrator Unit (DCU) for analog and non-critical functions

  • Dual Engine and System Data Acquisition Unit for engine indication
