Flying Colours Corp. has selected Rockwell Collins’ Venue cabin management and in-flight entertainment (CMS/IFE) system for retrofit installation on all its future CRJ ExecLiner conversions.
The first installation has already taken place as part of a Bombardier CRJ200 conversion to a VIP ExecLiner format which is nearing completion. A further five CRJ200s are due to be converted, and each will have the Venue system integrated.
“Having over 25 CRJ conversions completed, we wanted to upgrade our CMS offering to ensure that we offer customers modern intuitive technology, that also supports improved functionality,” commented Eric Gillespie, EVP, Flying Colours. “From a passenger’s perspective it provides a whole lot more in terms of flexibility, reliability and innovation. This is why we are now incorporating it as standard. Rockwell Collins’ worldwide support is available to Flying Colours customers via their Global network.”
In addition, Flying Colours will set up a demonstration unit of the Rockwell Collins Venue product in the client design room of its Peterborough, Ontario facility.
This latest selection of a Rockwell Collins product further bolsters the established relationship between the two North American companies, as Flying Colours is already a preferred installation agent and recognised dealer of all Rockwell Collins products.
