Rockwell Collins expands Pro Line Fusion® upgrade to include Pro Line II-equipped King Air 350 aircraft


CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – WEBWIRE – Wednesday, September 03, 2014

 Rockwell Collins has expanded its Pro Line Fusion® avionics upgrade to include Pro Line II-equipped King Air 350 aircraft. The retrofit solution delivers next-generation, eyes-forward touchscreen capabilities on the largest primary flight displays and the highest resolution synthetic vision available for King Air 350 aircraft.

“Beyond the dramatic modernization and enhanced situational awareness that our solution brings to the King Air 350 flight deck, it makes the most economic sense since it plugs right into Rockwell Collins systems already onboard the aircraft, including the autopilot and communication and navigation radios,” said Craig Olson, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. “It also increases aircraft resale value, and adds many years of life to the aircraft by replacing obsolete CRT displays.”

Rockwell Collins is collaborating with Landmark Aviation’s Winston-Salem maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) location to achieve a supplemental type certificate for the Pro Line Fusion upgrade on Pro Line II-equipped King Air 350 aircraft in the first half of 2015. The upgrade has an estimated flyaway price that is substantially more affordable than the current certified glass cockpit retrofit on the market, and brings a broad list of performance-enhancing capabilities including:


“We are really excited to be collaborating with Rockwell Collins on this project,” Landmark Aviation MRO Avionics Sales Manager Dwayne Chandler said. “Our years of experience with the King Air and Rockwell Collins avionics make this an excellent upgrade for our customers.”

Rockwell Collins’ award-winning Pro Line Fusion, which is featured on light jets, intercontinental business, air transport and military tanker special missions aircraft, helps pilots quickly and intuitively manage, monitor and master flight automation. The touchscreen, icon-based primary flight display solution for King Airs makes it even simpler for pilots to transition from the aircraft’s legacy avionics.

Olson added, “Our Pro Line Fusion upgrade program for the King Air 350 is setting the stage for a number of flight deck retrofit opportunities in the King Air market.”

Rockwell Collins has been the King Air flight deck of choice for more than 20 years and has been delivered on more than 2,600 King Airs since 1990.
