Paramount’s avionics upgrade

Paramount Group unveiled its C-130 Hercules avionics upgrade solution during the Africa Aerospace and Defence Expo outside Pretoria in September. It says the upgrade is close to being ordered by an undisclosed African customer. Some of the planned C-130 upgrade work would take place at the company’s facility at Polokwane, and other work in the customer’s home country. Paramount said the integrated avionics suite programme aims to enhance the cockpit and avionics, especially by itting glass cockpit displays and a digital autopilot.
