ABC Completions will no longer be offering the GDC64 option as these units are no longer being manufactured by DAC International. We are currently researching a new power supply option and hope to have news shortly. Our mechanical iPad installation option is still available and fully STC’d for all the aircraft types listed below.
ABC Completions holds FAA, TCCA and EASA STC certifications for the installation of the iPad® Cockpit Mounting System as a Class II Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) on the Global series airplanes we also hold FAA STCs for the Falcon 2000, Boeing 757 and our latest STC for the Challenger 604/605 series aircraft. Installations are certified for all phases of flight providing access to electronic terminal procedures and enroute charts from compatible software.
The iPad® mounting system includes full travel in tilt (up, down), sweep (left, right) and a 90 degree rotation taking advantage of the automatic portrait and landscape function of the iPad® when using electronic charting software. Graphical SIRIUS/XM® weather for North America using a compatible SIRIUS/XM® Weather receiver displaying video from compatible Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS), and up to four (4) security cameras is also available.
ABC Completions iPad® cockpit mounting system includes a custom-designed Mount and iPad® Housing. All associated certification and supporting data ensuring airworthiness compliance is supplied. The system can be purchased as a complete kit.
When an existing ABC Completions EFB mount is already installed in the aircraft and a conversion to iPad® is desired, an ABC Completions-designed Quick Change Adapter (QCA) attaches directly to the existing Esterline/CMC EFB Mount using its locking lever. The QCA can be easily removed and installed without tools.
The QCA features a universal joint, allowing the tablet to be adjusted to each pilot’s comfort. The QCA has full travel in tilt (up, down), sweep (left, right) and 90 degrees of rotation taking advantage of the automatic portrait and landscape function of the iPad®. This optimizes the use of electronic charting software.
Below is a video to show how fast and easy it is to use the Quick Change Adapter.
iPad® Housing Options
ABC Completions offers a full range of custom-designed iPad® Housings that are compatible with most iPad® models. Housings are powder-coated and fabricated from aircraft grade aluminum. We carry all iPad® Housings up to the latest iPad Pro 11.00″ 4th Gen model. Our Housing holds the tablet securely in place. Quick release fasteners allow for fast and easy removal of your iPad®.
