Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line Fusion® avionics upgrade for Pro Line II-equipped King Air B200 series aircraft has been certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The upgrade is available through Rockwell Collins-authorized dealers.
Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line Fusion upgrade for King Air B200 series turboprops provides turn-key compliance with airspace modernization deadlines and transforms the flying experience with the largest widescreen primary flight displays available. The upgrade enhances the aircraft’s value with the same icon-based, touchscreen technology found on new-production King Airs and is the first touchscreen primary flight display to be certified for operational use.
“This upgrade ushers new life into the B200, bringing compliance with airspace mandates and sets the stage for NextGen flying,” said Craig Olson, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Plus, the Pro Line Fusion flight deck transforms the flying experience for pilots by making it easier and more enjoyable to operate than ever before.”
“Upgrading to Pro Line Fusion will give us even more ability to get our customers where they need to go,” said Chris Frazier, Director of Operations for Carver Aero—operator of the first Pro Line II-equipped King Air B200 to receive this upgrade. “Now, we’ll have greater access to airports with more approach options during low-visibility and inclement weather, and the addition of an FMS will lead to better decisions for safer and more efficient flying.”
