The Boeing 737 MAX took its first flight today in Renton, Wash., making it the latest next-generation Boeing aircraft to fly with Rockwell Collins' advanced large-format flight displays. More than 3,000 737 MAX aircraft are on order with the first delivery expected in 2017.
The new 737 MAX flight deck includes four configurable 15.1-inch landscape LCD displays from Rockwell Collins that will increase situational awareness and efficiency. The displays will serve as a foundation for NextGen airspace technologies entering the marketplace.
“We share Boeing's pride in watching the 737 MAX soar, right on program schedule. This first flight was especially exciting for us since it marks the first time that Rockwell Collins large-format displays have been featured as standard fit on a 737 flight deck,” said Steve Timm, vice president and general manager, Air Transport Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Today's event also marks the continuation of a strong collaborative relationship with Boeing to bring these advanced displays and flight deck commonality to its entire fleet of next-generation aircraft.”
