CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, 22 Dec. 2015. Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line Fusion advanced avionics system has been type certified on the Bombardier CS100 commercial aircraft. Bombardier has booked orders and commitments for 603 C Series aircraft, including firm orders for 243.
Rockwell Collins also provides the Primary Flight Control Computer (PFCC) and MultiScan weather radar with predictive windshear as standard equipment on the C Series family of aircraft, and a single or dual Head-up Guidance System (HGS) as an option.

“Today solidifies our Pro Line Fusion avionics system as a flexible and proven solution for any category of aircraft, which now includes commercial transport,” says Craig Olson, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins.
Pro Line Fusion for the C Series aircraft, designed with five 15.1-inch diagonal LCD displays, provides an open architecture that enables extensive situational awareness capabilities aloft and on ground, comprehensive integration, and a growth roadmap to future air space requirements, officials say.
Performance-enhancing capabilities that Pro Line Fusion will bring to the C Series aircraft include: RNP AR 0.1 and Category IIIa/b autoland, which couples with Rockwell Collins’ PFCC for Bombardier’s fly-by-wire (FBW) flight control system.
Swiss International Air Lines will take delivery of the first C Series equipped with Rockwell Collins systems, which includes a dual HGS. First aircraft delivery is scheduled for the second quarter of 2016.
The C Series family of aircraft is designed specifically for the 100- to 149-seat market, is powered by Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1500G engines, and boasts an extra capacity seating option.
Rockwell Collins develops and deploys communication and aviation electronic solutions for both commercial nd government applications. Among them are: flight deck avionics, cabin electronics, mission communications, simulation and training, and information management.
