At Paris Air Show 2017, taking place June 19-25 at Le Bourget, Rockwell Collins (Chalet 313, Row B) will highlight how its investments in innovative solutions for cockpit, cabin, communication and connectivity are unleashing the potential of the rapidly changing aviation ecosystem.
The company recently purchased B/E Aerospace to create its new Interior Systems business, which includes a full portfolio of cabin interior solutions from advanced passenger seats developed for safety and comfort, to reliable galley systems and inserts for the highest standards of passenger service, to lighting that helps create the optimal atmosphere.
These cabin interior solutions, as well as some of the industry’s most advanced avionics, communication and connectivity solutions, are featured on key aircraft that will be flying and on display at this year’s Paris Air Show, including:
- Airbus A350 XWB, A380, A320 and A321: The A350 features the company’s new onboard information management system, navigation equipment, flight controls, a communication global package, common data network, seating and inserts products, as well as galley, passenger service units and oxygen systems. The A380 features a communication global package, navigation equipment, common data network, Ethernet backbone, lighting, seating and oxygen systems, and high-bandwidth connectivity. The A320 family of aircraft feature a range of airline-selectable communications, navigation and surveillance systems, seating and oxygen systems and high-bandwidth connectivity.
- Boeing 737 MAX, 787 Dreamliner: Rockwell Collins has standard flight deck positions on all next-generation Boeing aircraft.
