Rockwell Collins Awarded C919 Simulator Work

By Tish Drake | January 10, 2011

Rockwell Collins has been awarded a program to develop components for the COMAC C919 aircraft simulator program by Xian Aviation Science and Technology Company (XASC), an AVIC subsidiary. The simulator will be used by COMAC to support the C919 aircraft development.

"Our ability to leverage the basic simulator unit of our latest offering for the C919 program is a key benefit of our scalable and modular design approach," said Ken Schreder, vice president and general manager, Simulation and Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins. "This is especially critical as we collaborate with XASC to create a simulator that can be easily modified over the course of the development program."

The award marks the fifth training program in China for Rockwell Collins. The company is also involved with the MA-60 full flight simulator currently in final integration in XASC's facility in Yanliang, Xian; an MA-600 full flight simulator and flight training device for Xian Aircraft Company; and an ARJ-21 flight training device for COMAC.

Previously, Rockwell Collins was selected to provide avionics equipment for the C919, including the cabin core system, communication and navigation systems and integrated surveillance system.
