Viavi Solutions Inc. (VIAVI) (NASDAQ: VIAV) announced today that the AVX-10K Flight Line Test Set has been approved for use on all Boeing commercial aircraft previously approved for IFR4000 and IFR6000.
The AVX-10K is used for performance verification and troubleshooting of airborne systems during installation, maintenance, and required semi-annual reviews. The single device combines the communications, navigation, and surveillance test capabilities of the VIAVI IFR4000 and IFR6000. With test capabilities ranging from a quick system autotest to in-depth troubleshooting, the versatile AVX-10K can be used for maintenance needs in the cockpit or anywhere on the aircraft.
The AVX-10K has passed Boeing’s IFR4000 and IFR6000 equivalence requirements and has been assigned “AVX-10K” as the part number for AMM listing. Fixed-base operators (FBO), avionics and airframe manufacturers, or maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facilities can request VIAVI AVX-10K specification comparison documents here. While AMM updates are in progress, operators and maintainers can contact Boeing to confirm the part number and AMM reference in the following ways:
