American Airlines has signed an agreement with Airbus to install Enhanced Electronic Instrument System (EEIS2) LCD flight deck displays and new display computers on more than 100 A320 Family aircraft. 

The new EEIS2 will replace current cathode ray tube displays and Display Management Computers (DMC) in a multi-year retrofit program. Each A320 Family aircraft has six flight deck displays and three DMCs located in the avionics bay. The EEIS2 equipment is built by Thales and integrated by Airbus, which will provide the necessary service bulletins and installation kits as well as on-site engineering support.

EEIS2 helps improve information displays for pilots thanks to its high resolution LCD screen and offers new system capabilities and features for American’s A320ceo fleet. In addition to these new system capabilities, the EEIS2 program will also maximise fleet commonality, significantly reduce maintenance costs and deliver a 50kg weight saving per aircraft.
