Cessna selects Rockwell Collins Cabin Management System for Citation CJ4 program

Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, has selected Rockwell Collins' new digital cabin management system (CMS) for the Citation CJ4 business jet.

The new CMS represents the next generation of cabin management and entertainment capabilities, while being optimized for the size and weight concerns of the Light Jet market.   The system will incorporate a range of new and innovative entertainment features, including high definition video, audio and an integrated Airshow moving map.  The system will be offered as part of the baseline CJ4 cabin package.

"The Rockwell Collins CMS will provide our CJ4 customers a new level of convenience and functionality," said Roger Whyte, Cessna senior vice president, Sales & Marketing. "This system is a direct result of customer input asking for greater capability throughout the aircraft."

"This system brings cabin entertainment to a new level for the Light Jet market," said Tommy Dodson, vice president and general manager for Rockwell Collins Cabin Systems. "We have had a long relationship with Cessna and have built a strong level of trust, so we're pleased to continue that relationship with our new CMS for the CJ4."

Rockwell Collins is also the supplier for the Pro Line 21 avionics that will be standard equipment for the new CJ4 aircraft, as it is with the other members of the Citation CJ family of business aircraft. The CJ4 is scheduled to enter into service in 2010.
