Air Italy, the dynamic charter airline, has chosen AD Aerospace, an AD Group company, to supply CabinVu-123 to improve safety and security on board its B737 aircraft. CabinVu-123 increases cockpit security by giving the pilots a clear view of any activity outside the cockpit door and in the adjacent galleys, thereby greatly improving their situational awareness.
“At Air Italy the safety and security of our customers is our first priority, which is why we chose CabinVu-123 from AD Aerospace,” said Mr Antenor Silva Neto, assistant to the CEO and accountable manager of Air Italy. “We see this as the best choice as it provides high quality and reliability at a good price, just as we do.”
CabinVu-123, the popular choice for cockpit door surveillance, provides pilots with a forward-looking, clear and unobstructed view of the area outside the cockpit door and in the adjacent galleys from their usual seated positions. A series of cameras are linked to either one or two monitors and associated controllers within easy reach of the pilots for ease and comfort of use.
With the view provided by the system the pilots can visually identify anyone requesting entry and take appropriate action, should an incident arise. This is in line with recommendations from ICAO Annex 6, EUROCAE ED-123 and provides compliance with EU-OPS 1.1255 Sub Part S, FAA 14 CFR 121.313(k) and 14 CFR 121.584 (a). CabinVu-123 is also good for operators due to its low weight and simple installation.
“Air Italy is a very welcome addition to the family of airlines across Europe and the world fitting AD Aerospace safety and security systems,” said Mike Horne, managing director of AD Aerospace. “As an exciting and growing force in Italian and European aviation we are extremely pleased to have won Air Italy’s business.”
