FAA Certifies New B757/767 Aftermarket Flight Deck

Dreamliner-Inspired Large-Format Display System Enhances Situational Awareness, Company Says

The FAA has granted an initial supplemental type certificate (STC) to Rockwell Collins for its Boeing 757/767 large-format display flight deck retrofit. The STC is a result of the collaboration between Rockwell Collins and Boeing.

“There are hundreds of Boeing 757s and 767s flying today that have a lot of life left in the airframe and new airspace mandates are driving changes in the flight deck that demand displays with greater viewing area, along with additional throughput and memory,” said Steve Timm, vice president and general manager, Air Transport Systems for Rockwell Collins. “The flight deck transformation we’re providing with Boeing modernizes these flight decks, taking the aircraft into the next decade and beyond.”

The 757/767 upgrade, inspired by Rockwell Collins’ advanced flight deck technology on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, features three large-format LCD displays that replace six cathode ray tube (CRT) displays and numerous analog instruments to provide operators with a number of benefits, including:

  • The only display retrofit available with engine-indicating and crew-alerting system (EICAS) data on LCD displays
  • Enhanced flight crew situational awareness gained from 15.1-inch displays
  • Maintenance savings driven by significant increase in new display system reliability
  • Improved fuel efficiency from 150-pound flight deck weight reduction
  • A platform to incorporate future safety-enhancing technology such as airport taxi maps, data link weather, surface guidance, and synthetic and enhanced vision systems
  • Aircraft life extension by proactively managing CRT obsolescence
  • Display commonality with Boeing 787 Dreamliner and 737 MAX aircraft, which reduces required training and associated cost for air carriers with a mixed fleet.

In addition, Rockwell Collins’ Head-up Guidance System (HGS) is available for the Boeing 757/767 aftermarket, which further enhances situational awareness and provides more efficient operations through all phases of flight, including departures and approaches in low-visibility conditions, thunderstorm diversion, and quick, at-a-glance flight path monitoring.
