Rockwell Collins announced today that it has been selected by Airbus to provide the rudder/brake pedal assembly for the A350 XWB family of aircraft.
“This win tops off a comprehensive suite of offerings for the A350 XWB, which represents the most content we’ve ever had on an Airbus platform,” said Kent Statler, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Commercial Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Airbus’s confidence in us to design, produce and implement innovative solutions for this new-generation aircraft was a key factor in this latest award.”
The previously announced Rockwell Collins-supplied products and solutions for the A350 XWB, including the aircraft’s communications, information management, landing and navigation systems, are valued at $2.5 billion over the life of the program.
More than 600 A350 XWBs have been ordered by airlines throughout the world.
