the av8 group develops an faa-der approved solution for mcdu keyboard replacement

March 26, 2020

The Av8 Group has developed an FAA-DER approved solution for the MCDU (Multipurpose Control Display Unit) Keyboard Replacement Unit in the Airbus A320, A330 and A340 aircraft.

The MCDU keyboards are used often and the paint can become chipped or faded, along with the buttons themselves completely breaking. The replacement kit, developed by Av8 in conjunction with Savvy Aerospace, brings the unit back to optimal operating condition and eliminates issues related to aging or worn keypad buttons.

“This approved solution cost significantly less than OEM replacement options and customers have two options of repair, either send in the unit for complete FAA 8130 certified repair or the PMA approved part can be shipped directly to the customer and they can install the parts themselves with the same certification,” said Yoel Arnoni, CEO, The Av8 Group.
