VivaAerobus Selects Rockwell Collins Advanced Avionics

Will Be Installed On 52 New Airbus Aircraft

Rockwell Collins today announced that Mexico-based VivaAerobus has selected a comprehensive Rockwell Collins avionics package, including its MultiScan ThreatTrack weather radar and GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), for 52 new Airbus A320 aircraft. Deliveries will begin in 2015.

“VivaAerobus pilots will operate with the most advanced technology for avoiding damaging weather threats and be better equipped to precisely navigate challenging approaches,” said Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director, the Americas for Rockwell Collins. “The airline also is well-positioned for any future airspace mandates that may emerge in Latin America.”

MultiScan ThreatTrack goes beyond hail and lightning prediction within a thunderstorm and alerts pilots to these significant threats adjacent to or above the cell. In addition, the new radar is the first in the industry to feature two levels of turbulence detection – severe and ride-quality – which more accurately informs flight crews of the type of turbulence in their path.

Rockwell Collins’ MMR, the first ever GPS Landing System receiver, enables airlines to take advantage of evolving Required Navigation Performance (RNP)/Area Navigation (RNAV) and Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) capabilities. Other Rockwell Collins avionics systems selected by VivaAerobus include the ADF-900 Automatic Direct Finder, DME-2100 Distance Measuring Equipment, VHF-2100 Transceiver and VOR-900 Omnidirectional Radio.

“We are very pleased to partner with Rockwell Collins, whose technology, without a doubt, provides advanced operational experience to our pilots and a smooth and safe flight experience to our customers, which enhances our operations while reducing costs,” said Juan Carlos Zuazua, VivaAerobus CEO. “Rockwell Collins has provided, through its many years of experience, a reliable service; we look forward to working closely with this key aviation supplier."
