flydubai Airlines selects Rockwell Collins Head-up Guidance System and MultiScan ThreatTrack weather radar for Boeing Next-Generation 737-800

Rockwell Collins today announced that Dubai-based flydubai has selected a suite of Rockwell Collins avionics, including the Head-up Guidance System (HGS™), MultiScan ThreatTrack™ weather radar and datalink communications system for 11 Next-Generation Boeing 737 aircraft. Deliveries will take place during 2016 and 2017.

The latest agreement, announced at the Dubai Airshow, marks the continuation of a strong relationship that Rockwell Collins has established with flydubai since it was founded in 2008.

Rockwell Collins HGS-4000 system features manual guidance to touchdown allowing for Category III approach and landing down to 600 ft / 200 M Runway Visual Range (RVR), low-visibility takeoff as low as 300 ft / 75 M RVR and lower-than-standard Category I approach minima as low as 1400 ft / 350 M RVR. The HGS-4000 also has numerous safety features including specific symbology for tailstrike avoidance, TCAS alerts, as well as awareness and recovery from unusual attitude and windshear events.
