Pro Line Fusion upgrade for Hawker Beechcraft aircraft


Hawker Beechcraft and Rockwell Collins launches aftermarket programme for Pro Line Fusion

Hawker Beechcraft Global
Customer Support announced that, in collaboration with Rockwell Collins, they
are launching an aftermarket program to bring Pro Line Fusion display upgrades
to all fielded Pro Line 21-equipped Hawker and Beechcraft aircraft. The upgrade
features large format, landscape, touch-control displays that come standard
with Synthetic Vision and visual flight management system. Certification is
expected before the end of 2013.

“This Pro Line Fusion upgrade represents an amazing technology leap in flight
deck display technology for our customers,” said Christi Tannahill, Hawker
Beechcraft, vice president, Global Customer Support. “In today’s world, touch
screen technology is changing how we interact with our handheld devices. Making
it available to our existing fleet of aircraft further enhances the value of
those aircraft and the environment they operate in.”

“The proven scalability of
the Pro Line Fusion software, combined with advanced hardware features such as
embedded display processing and highly integrated sensors and radios, are key
elements of making the system small enough and cost effective for light
business aircraft,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager,
Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins.
