Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics successfully complete first flight on Gulfstream G250

Rockwell Collins today announced that its Pro Line Fusion avionics system successfully completed its first test flight on the Gulfstream G250 super mid-size business jet. The company's next-generation avionics system, Pro Line Fusion is a core element of the Gulfstream PlaneView 250 cockpit.

The three-hour test flight was conducted at Israel Aerospace Industry's (IAI) Flight Test Center at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel. Pro Line Fusion capabilities tested during this first flight included the high resolution LCD display system with integrated cursor control, radio tuning for communication, navigation and surveillance systems, flight management system, high resolution terrain display, electronic charts and autopilot.

The mission was flown by Ronen Shapira, IAI chief test pilot.  

"Achieving first flight of a brand new aircraft is always an awe-inspiring event," said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. "It's been a remarkable process working with Gulfstream to assure that their customers have the best flight deck technologies available to them. The PlaneView flight deck, featuring Pro Line Fusion, holds the promise of an intuitive user interface, enhanced situational awareness, the ability to accommodate new technologies due to its scaleable architecture and advanced information management capabilities."
