DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 18 Nov. 2009. Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) has selected Rockwell Collins communication, navigation, and surveillance avionics systems to be offered as baseline equipment for installation on 70 of the company's new Airbus A320 aircraft. Delivery of the aircraft is scheduled from 2011 through 2015. Rockwell Collins made the announcement at the Dubai Air Show.
The Rockwell Collins avionics will be offered as "baseline" when DAE leases an aircraft to an end-user airline. Specific end-user aircraft avionics configurations will vary depending on end-user preference.
"We're excited to begin a new relationship with DAE as we continue to expand our business with major aircraft leasing companies," says Jeff Standerski, vice president and general manager of Air Transport Systems for Rockwell Collins. "DAE's selection of our systems as the preferred baseline configuration shows their confidence in our leading edge communication, navigation, and surveillance avionics."
"Our selection of Rockwell Collins reflects our confidence in the employees and the products of Rockwell Collins," says Bob Genise, chief executive officer of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise's Capital division. "Rockwell Collins is a well respected company in the aerospace industry, and we are pleased to offer their products as our baseline equipment on our A320 family aircraft."
