Rockwell Collins has replaced its CES legacy cabin entertainment system with its new Venue HD cabin management and in-flight entertainment in Europe for the first time with help from AMAC Aerospace.
The upgrade utilised certain cabin components already on the Bombardier Global aircraft in question as part of the original CES system, ensuring a cost-effective process.
“In many cases, there is no need to completely rip out a cabin to bring it up to date with the latest technologies,” explained Greg Irmen, VP and general manager, flight controls and information systems, Rockwell Collins. “Our Venue solution goes beyond today, too, with the flexibility to adapt to new consumer technologies as they come to market.”
“AMAC Aerospace is very happy to have worked with Rockwell Collins on this exciting new Venue system, which by all accounts, has marginalised the downtime necessary for this new system installation,” stated Eric Hoegen, AMAC Aerospace’s sales and key account manager. “Our client is very happy with the Rockwell Collins Venue system and we expect more requests to arrive as with the same client satisfaction.”
