PAVES PSS certified by AFI KLM E&M for Airbus A330s

Rockwell Collins’ PAVES Passenger Service System (PSS) has been certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for installation on Airbus A330 aircraft.The company teamed with Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M) to design, install and achieve the supplemental type certificate (STC) as part of a cabin upgrade for an A330 from AERCAP.
