Replacing the old B-17G intercom system with a brand-new Becker Avionics, Bluetooth capable DVCS6100 will allow crew members to effectively communicate over the noise of the 4 “Cyclone” turbosupercharged radial engines. Crew members in the nose, on the flight deck, and in the waist will all be able to converse clearly with each other. As such, the DVCS6100 is a critical crew resource management tool and safe operation apparatus.
The B-17G Flying Fortress Texas Raiders
B-17G Texas Raiders was acquired by the Commemorative Air Force in 1967. In 1974 the aircraft was assigned to the Gulf Coast Wing and has proudly operated Texas Raiders ever since. In 2001, when the FAA opened the Living History Flight Program for warbirds, Texas Raiders was one of the very first, allowing for passenger flights starting on April 29, 2001. Since that fateful day, Texas Raiders has treated thousands of riders to a unique experience they will remember vividly for the rest of their lives.
The Becker Digital Voice Communication System DVCS6100 is a fully ETSO and TSO certified state-of-the-art airborne digital audio selector and intercom system. Designed for both fixed and rotary wing aircraft, the DVCS6100 delivers crystal-clear voice communication quality, a proven Man-Machine-Interface (MMI), unsurpassed reliability, and remarkable scalability and flexibility through its fully configurable software platform.
The DVCS6100 from Becker represents a monumental step forward for current users of legacy analog systems and a logical choice for any aviation professional looking for digital audio solutions.
