Rockwell Collins has won the biggest-ever airline order in its history to equip several hundred China Eastern aircraft with cockpit avionics and cabin entertainment systems.

 

The airline selected Rockwell Collins to outfit five different aircraft types from Airbus and Boeing with its PAVES on-demand inflight entertainment (IFE) system, MultiScan ThreatTrack weather radar, its GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), and Head-up Guidance system (HGS).

 

It will install PAVES on 30 Next-Generation Boeing 737 and 60 737 MAX aircraft, and various avionics systems on 15 Airbus A330, 70 A320neo, 50 Next-Generation Boeing 737 and 60 737 MAX aircraft.

 

Last year China Eastern selected the PAVES Broadcast IFE and Airshow moving map for 15 new 737 aircraft.

The scalable and flexible PAVES system allows for hybrid IFE configurations supporting the airlines requirements for unique configurations, such as inseat IFE in first class and overhead IFE in economy. PAVES also offers airlines a high degree of flexibility in the management of their digital content.

 

MultiScan ThreatTrack alerts pilots to significant threats adjacent to or above a thunderstorm cell, beyond standard hail and lightning predictions. In addition, the new radar is the first in the industry to feature two levels of turbulence detection.

 

The GLU-925 MMR is the first certified GPS Landing System receiver and enables high-integrity navigation, including RNP AR, Category III ILS and Category I Global Positioning Landing System approaches. The MMR also enables GPS position and availability requirements for ADS-B Out mandates.

Rockwell Collins HGS displays critical flight information in a pilot's forward fieldof-view, eliminating the need for pilots to transition to the head-down instruments.
