Thomas Global Systems has received FAA STC approval for its TFD-8601 Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) upgrade on Embraer EMB-120 Brasilia aircraft. The STC was achieved as part of a collaborative effort with leading EMB-120 operator Ameriflight, and is available now through Thomas Global and Thomas Global authorised dealers. The Company has entered into a multi-year Preferred Supplier Agreement with Ameriflight covering these products.


The TFD-8601 display is a plug-and-play, Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Display (AMLCD) replacement for legacy cathode ray tube (CRT) displays. It provides improved reliability and reduced costs, with lower weight, less heat and reduced power consumption. The product retains the use of all existing cockpit systems and makes provision for additional functionality. The upgrade can be completed quickly with no changes to existing cockpit panels or wiring, and no crew retraining or changes to flight simulators.
