Rockwell Collins secures 5J avionics

Wins first order in RP

February 4, 2010

Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) has chosen Rockwell Collins to provide a full suite of communication, navigation and surveillance systems as baseline equipment for the airline's 15 new Airbus A320 aircraft and its five options. This award marks Rockwell Collins' debut on the Philippine-based CEB fleet.

A signing ceremony to commemorate the agreement will take place at the Singapore Airshow on Feb. 3 at 11 a.m. in the Rockwell Collins Stand U77, USA Pavilion.

"As an airline that takes great pride in providing world-class service at the right price, Cebu Pacific Air understands the critical importance of equipping their aircraft with the most advanced and reliable avionics systems available," said Thud Chee (TC) Chan, vice president and managing director, Asia-Pacific for Rockwell Collins. "We look forward to working closely with Cebu Pacific Air to demonstrate the innovation and support provided by Rockwell Collins' avionics, which will help the airline deliver reliability and value to its customers."

The Rockwell Collins MultiScanTM Hazard Detection System is among the avionics CEB selected. The MultiScan system is the first and only radar that analyzes and determines actual weather hazards, not simply atmospheric moisture content, to provide flight crews more accurate weather returns. The MultiScan system is derived from extensive operational experience to create a fully automatic, hands-free airborne radar system that reduces pilot workload and enhances safety and passenger comfort by minimizing unexpected turbulence encounters, and provides optimal clutter-free weather displays.

"This is in line with CEB's continuing commitment to provide the safest and most convenient flights to our passengers. We recognize the quality of Rockwell Collins' avionics technology, and look forward to a fruitful partnership with them," said CEB President and CEO Lance Gokongwei.

CEB also selected the following sensors from Rockwell Collins: ADF-900 Automatic Direction Finder, DME-900 Distance Measuring Equipment, HFS-900D High Frequency Data Radio, GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver, VHF-2100 High Speed Multi-Mode Data Radio, and VOR-900 VHF Omnidirectional Range Receiver. -Peanuts
