Rockwell Collins Wins 737 MAX Contract For Large-Format Flight Displays

Will Also Provide Displays For KC-46 Tanker

Rockwell Collins has been selected by Boeing to provide its large-format flight displays as standard equipment on the 737 MAX flight deck. The multi-year agreement leverages Rockwell Collins’ flight display technology from the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Currently there are more than 900 orders for the 737 MAX.

The new flight deck includes four configurable 15.1-inch landscape LCD displays that will increase situational awareness and efficiency. The displays are also featured on the Boeing KC-46 Tanker and as a retrofit offering for existing 757 and 767 aircraft. “It’s a great honor to add the 737 MAX to the growing family of Boeing aircraft equipped with our state-of-the-art flight displays,” said Kent Statler, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Commercial Systems at Rockwell Collins. “Airlines will benefit from the increased real estate and dramatically enhanced visuals of these displays which will serve as the foundation for NextGen airspace technologies entering the marketplace.”

First delivery of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft with Rockwell Collins’ flight displays is expected in 2017.
