Hainan Airlines has selected a number of Rockwell Collins avionics, including its WXR-2100 MultiScan™ Threat Detection System and GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), for 47 new Airbus A320s. Deliveries are in progress.
“We have a long-standing, strong relationship with Hainan Airlines – one that now spans twenty years,” said TC Chan, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins. “Hainan’s choice of our most advanced avionics is a testament to the trust between us, and more importantly, it enables more reliable, safer operations in a fast-growing industry.”
Rockwell Collins’ award-winning MultiScan Threat Detection System is a fully automatic, hands-free airborne radar system. MultiScan provides optimal clutter-free weather information that reduces pilot workload and enhances safety and passenger comfort by minimizing unexpected turbulence encounters.
The advanced GLU-925 is the first MMR certified for precision landing using either Global Navigation Satellite Systems or Instrument Landing Systems. The GLU-925 is the primary navigation sensor for all phases of flight, and meets the stringent Required Navigation Performance requirement of 0.1 n.m.
