Bombardier CSeries aircraft takes flight with Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics, primary flight control computer

Rockwell Collins' Pro Line Fusion® avionics and Primary Flight Control Computer (PFCC) played a key role in the successful first flight of Bombardier's CSeries commercial aircraft, which took place today in Montréal, Québec.

“We congratulate Bombardier on the successful first flight of its new single-aisle aircraft and look forward to more collaboration with the aircraft maker during flight testing and entry-into- service,” said Jeff Standerski, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. “This flight is especially meaningful to Rockwell Collins, as it further proves Pro Line Fusion's flexibility throughout the business and commercial aircraft market segments.”

Rockwell Collins' Pro Line Fusion is featured on 16 aircraft platforms ranging from turboprops, light jets, intercontinental business jets, and commercial aircraft to military tanker and special missions platforms. The scalability of Pro Line Fusion is unmatched in the industry.

Pro Line Fusion for the CSeries aircraft, designed with five 15.1-inch diagonal LCD displays, provides an open architecture that enables extensive situational awareness capabilities, comprehensive integration with aircraft systems such as Rockwell Collins' MultiScan™ weather radar and optional single or dual Head-up Display (HUD), and a growth roadmap to future air space requirements. Performance-enhancing capabilities that Pro Line Fusion will bring to the CSeries aircraft include RNP AR 0.1 and Category IIIa/b autoland, which couples with Rockwell Collins' PFCC for Bombardier's fly-by-wire (FBW) flight control system.

Rockwell Collins' PFCC provides an enabling platform to execute complex aircraft control laws, optimize aircraft fuel efficiency, improve passenger safety and enhance overall passenger ride comfort. 

The CSeries family of aircraft is designed specifically for the 100- to 149-seat market. Powered by Pratt & Whitney PurePower** PW1500G engines, the CSeries aircraft family will offer a 15*** percent cash operating cost advantage and a 20*** percent fuel burn advantage. With the extra capacity seating option, the CS300* aircraft's productivity further improves, offering airlines an average of four*** percent additional cash operating cost advantage per seat.

Rockwell Collins' innovative avionics solutions will provide CSeries aircraft operators with high dispatch reliability and enhanced operational efficiencies, well-suited for the optimized mission capability of the CSeries aircraft family.
