DUBAI, December 7, 2014

US-based Rockwell Collins will be showcasing its new portfolio of ArincDirect flight information solutions and cabin systems at the Middle East Business Aviation (Meba) annual convention and exhibition, taking place tomorrow (December 8) till December 10.

The new ArincDirect is a suite of flight support services for business aviation consolidates and integrates the company’s former Ascend Flight Information Solutions to provide one solution for flight planning, regional and international trip support, cabin connectivity and flight operations management.

ArincDirect services that will be highlighted at Meba 2014 include:

  • An innovative tankering feature available through the ArincDirect customer portal which helps business aviation operators better manage fuel costs;
  • An integrated weight and balance/performance feature in the ArincDirect iPad app that provides business aviation pilots the ability to make accurate computations with or without an internet connection;
  • Extensions of Rockwell Collins’ Flight Operating System (FOS) featuring new levels of integration between the ArincDirect application and the flight scheduling and operations management software;
  • The latest connectivity capabilities to help keep the cabin and crew connected in-flight

Rockwell’s Venue HD cabin management and entertainment system has been installed on more than 450 aircraft. Venue’s flexibility allows for integration of other cabin systems, including its Airshow Moving Map system and its Apple-enabling Skybox solution.

Airshow delivers real-time flight information for passengers during their journeys, both on cabin-mounted and personal devices. Skybox, as well as Venue’s embedded audio/video on-demand (Avod) function, allows passengers to stream content throughout the cabin.

Moreover, Rockwell’s Tailwind multi-region in-flight TV system offers content-rich, live programming during flight. The company recently announced a new satellite reception technology for its Tailwind 550 system for large VIP aircraft which provides 25 per cent greater programming coverage for all supported regions. It also improves reliability when traveling between regions where satellite coverage may be weak, and while flying in hot and humid areas. – TradeArabia News Service
