CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (May 25, 2016) - Bombardier Commercial Aircraft recognized Rockwell Collins’ exceptional achievements on the CRJ aircraft program throughout the past year with its 2015 In-Service Supplier Top Achievement Recognition (STAR) Award. The STAR Award recognizes suppliers with performance scores of at least 90 percent in areas such as product performance, airline support, and customer focus.

“The collaboration between Rockwell Collins and Bombardier is ever-evolving, especially as we lead up to the airline debut of the C Series featuring our Pro Line Fusion® avionics,” said Craig Olson, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. “The innovative technologies that we provide on Bombardier's extensive and diverse line of aircraft enable operators to fly more efficiently with greater situational awareness.”

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft also recognized fourteen operators of its CRJ Series regional jets and Q Series turboprops with 2015 Aircraft Reliability Performance Awards.
