A CRUCIAL COMPONENT

The Control Display Unit (CDU) is the gateway to the heart and soul of any modern airliner.  With its key role as a human-machine interface, it plays a critical role in the operation of today’s aircraft.  Pilots interact with these devices from the time they board to the time they leave the cockpit.

With over a decade in production and thousands of units in circulation, FDS has long been the go-to CDU supplier for major airlines, airframers, aviation authorities, flight schools, R&D firms, and enthusiasts.  The new E-Series PRO-MX CDUs are designed to cater to each and every one of those diverse market segments.

Compatible with numerous major high level 747 avionics software suites and add-ons, and equipped with a built-in desk stand, FDS E-Series PRO-MX CDUs can be easily used in a classroom setting or dropped into virtually any FDS B747 trainer.
