BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 30, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — CB Jones International President Craig Jones announced today that the company is now offering the 4 MCU flight management computer (FMC part number 176200-01-01) at significant savings over original equipment manufacturer (OEM) pricing. Most significantly, multiple FMCs are ready for immediate delivery on a first come, first serve basis. Typical industry lead times recently have been 200 days or more.
Airlines interested in stocking FMC part number 176200-01-01 or planning to retrofit 737s with the latest 4 MCU flight management computers can contact CB Jones International to request a 17-page white paper outlining the benefits, capabilities and specifications associated with 4 MCU- Model 2907C1, FMC p/n 176200-01-01. In general, the greatest benefit for airlines using the 4 MCU FMC will be significant fuel savings.
When decision makers compare 4 MCU to 8 MCU FMCs they will find the 4 MCU p/n 176200-01-01 use less energy (27 watts versus 100 watts), have a much better mean time between failures (MTBF) (18,000 hours versus 6,000 hours) and are lighter (11 lbs. versus 35 lbs.).
In general, when airlines upgrade to 4MCU flight management computers, they save on maintenance costs in two ways. First, the three year warranty on the new computers will relieve the airline of ongoing internal maintenance costs, and second, after the warranty period, the airline will be operating flight management computers that have lower average cost of repairs due to the improvement to the MTFB rate.
Some highlights of the flight management computers CB Jones International offers include 32 bit architecture, on board loadable software and database, extra spare capacity in speed, memory and interfaces, single FMC operation including “Both on Left” or “Both on Right” available in case of failure, flexible ACARS permitting the airlines to change Message Content and Transmission Triggers without re-certification, Integrated GS and IRS Navigation Certified for RNP RNAV Approach and Departure Operations, “irregular operation” meaning RNP benefits are achieved by using RNAV/RNP approaches.
CB Jones International has over 35 years of experience in the aviation industry trading with customers in over 25 countries worldwide.
