Rockwell Collins and Kobev International launch FANS 1/A + and CPDLC aircrew operational training course

  • Training uses real-world emulation program to enhance pilotsaEUR(tm) understanding

Rockwell Collins announced that it has signed an exclusive agreement with Kobev International to introduce a new FANS 1/A + and CPDLC training program that incorporates a unique Pilot Trainer program that emulates a pilot's real world communications with Air Traffic Control (ATC). The emulation program, developed by Rockwell Collins' ARINC Direct business unit, provides a more realistic instructional experience for pilots than traditional classroom teaching alone.

The training covers pilot interface and interaction with onboard aircraft systems supporting CPDLC, Automatic Dependent Surveillance, Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunication Network and Aeronautical Operational Control communications over ACARS® protocols and is available at Rockwell Collins' Annapolis, Maryland facility, Kobev International's KARR facility in Sugar Grove, Illinois, or in-aircraft at a customer's location.

"Using our Pilot Trainer emulation program enables pilots and flight crews to have an interactive experience with real time feedback, which provides an improved understanding of FANS," said Bob Richard, staff vice president, ARINC Direct, Information Management Services for Rockwell Collins. "As a leader in the industry, safety is important to us and we are pleased to be able to offer this enhanced training program to business aviation customers everywhere."
