Collins launching bizav tech hub Izon


Collins Aerospace is launching Izon, a platform that brings business aviation services together including flight planning, weather and fleet operations.

The platform is intended to give pilots and flight operators a single place to access all their applications any time and on almost any device with an internet connection. Izon is also designed with a flexible user interface and dashboard to allow all flight departments to fit their needs.

“Izon is a direct result of listening to our customers who were asking for a streamlined way to access all their business aviation services,” said LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president and general manager for Information Management Services and Collins Aerospace. “Izon is more than just a portal for Collins Aerospace services, this will be the hub for all business aviation services our customers need.”

From launch, Izon users will have access to the Collin’s ARINCDirect flight support and connectivity services as well as select third-party applications. Additional Collins services are expected to be available in 2022, including access to navigation databases for Collins-equipped aircraft, and the company’s Stage content management and Tailwind TV subscriptions.

Dave Nieuwsma, president, business unit at Collins Aerospace’s Avionics, said: “Transforming data into meaningful, insightful information is just one way that Collins is simplifying the business of flight for our customers. Across Collins Aerospace, this digital transformation means providing aircraft operators with connected tools – such as Izon – applications and equipment to build an ecosystem that makes their jobs easier, safer and more efficient.”
