Rockwell Collins today announced that its Pro Line Fusion® integrated avionics system has achieved Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification on the Gulfstream PlaneView280TM flight deck.
"The PlaneView280 flight deck with Pro Line Fusion is the most advanced in its class with large format displays and intuitive graphics for all phases of flight and information management capabilities that help streamline flight operations," said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. "Additionally, the open systems approach we’ve taken with Pro Line Fusion made it possible to add Gulfstream-specific software applications with ease, staying consistent with the look and feel of Gulfstream PlaneView platforms."
The Pro Line Fusion configuration selected by Gulfstream for the PlaneView280 flight deck includes the following standard features:
Irmen also noted that adding the optional Head-up Guidance System (HGS™) with enhanced vision capability to this flight deck further improves operational efficiency, especially in low visibility conditions.
Rockwell Collins' HGS is an advanced head-up display with a powerful high-integrity computer that gives pilots essential flight information and guidance for all phases of flight, from safe and efficient takeoffs all the way to stable and smooth touchdowns. The HGS also is an option on Gulfstream G350 and G500 aircraft, and comes standard on the G450, G550 and G650.
