CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (July 5, 2016) - The 2016 Farnborough Airshow, taking place July 11-14, will include a broad array of next-generation commercial and military aircraft that feature major advancements in flight technology created by Rockwell Collins.

The company’s large-format, high-resolution displays allow a pilot to customize the information they want and need for flight. Cursor control devices and touchscreen technology on primary flight displays featured on these aircraft are signs that pilot interaction with the avionics continues to mirror the consumer world.

Rockwell Collins’ Head-Up Guidance and Helmet Mounted Display Systems place critical flight information on displays directly in front of pilots’ eyes—either on a glass mounted to the windshield or even on the glass of a fighter pilot’s helmet.

In addition to new displays in the cockpit, new information-rich offerings from the company can be found running behind the scenes, from on-board and air-to-ground communication networks to new inflight entertainment and connectivity offerings that keep passengers safe, connected and informed.

To date, the following aircraft platforms, which have been confirmed for Farnborough, all feature significant content from Rockwell Collins:

  • Airbus A350
  • Boeing 737 MAX
  • Boeing 787 Dreamliner
  • Bombardier C Series
  • Bombardier Global 5000
  • Embraer KC-390
  • Embraer Legacy 500
  • Gulfstream G280
  • Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II.
Key events and announcements that will be supported by the Rockwell Collins team at the 2016 Farnborough Airshow include:

  • F-35 helmet demonstration at the Lockheed Martin Media Center, Monday-Thursday
  • A new customer announcement for the company’s Pro Line Fusion® platform featuring touch screen technology
