Fokker Services has received an order from Romanian operator Blue Air for the introduction of TCAS 7.1 modification on their 11 Boeing 737 aircraft. The development was initiated by EUROCONTROL, with the new software supplying an improvement in the detection of situations in which, despite the Resolution Advisories, aircraft continue to converge vertically.


The mandate is applicable in European Union airspace as of 1 March 2012 to all new aircraft above 5,700 kg MTOW, or those that are authorised to carry more than 19 passengers. A deadline of 1 December 2015 has been granted to aircraft with an individual certificate of airworthiness issued before 1 March 2012 equipped with version 7. The EU Implementing Rule sets earlier compliance requirements than those published in ICAO Annex 10 (1 January 2014 new installations, 1 January 2017 existing units).


Thomas Global Systems has launched the LCD TFD-8601 cockpit retrofit solution for Rockwell Collins EFD-86 CRT displays on SAAB 340 and Embraer EMB-120 Brasilia regional aircraft, as well as Beechcraft King Air, Dassault Falcon, Gulfstream, Hawker and Learjet corporate aircraft.
