CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Collins Aerospace was selected by the Portuguese Air Force for its C-130H Hercules military transport aircraft modernization effort. Serving as a contractor to OGMA – Industria Aeronautica de Portugal, Collins will provide its Flight2 aftermarket avionics solution.

“The Portuguese Air Force uses C-130s for a broad range of missions, including personnel and cargo transport, and even firefighting,” said Dave Schreck, vice president, Military Avionics & Helicopters for Collins Aerospace.

Flight2 changes the fleet's federated analog system into a modern digital glass cockpit that provides commonality to commercial aircraft. Included in the avionics upgrade is a full glass cockpit with new primary flight displays, Required Navigation Performance/Area Navigation flight management system with high altitude release point, and computed air release point precision airdrop software.
