Rockwell Collins’ Venue cabin management and HD entertainment system will be installed by Jet Aviation St. Louis for the first time on a Bombardier Global Express XRS. The work will be completed during a major overhaul event.
“This aircraft will undergo its 8C inspection and the client has elected to refurbish the interior, paint the aircraft and have the Venue system installed in conjunction with the inspection,” said David Loso, avionics sales manager, Jet Aviation St. Louis. “A significant maintenance event like this is an ideal time for a Venue installation because it provides interior access and saves overall downtime.”
“Venue is the ideal solution to meet the high-end cabin requirement that a Global operator expects,” said Dave Austin, vice president and general manager, Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Not only is high definition desired, but operators want a reliable cabin system that is built to meet today’s needs and architected to enable future insertion of new technologies.”
The Venue HD retrofit by Jet Aviation St. Louis includes a 10.6-inch HD touch-screen displays in the cabin and galley; 4-inch personal touch-screen programmable switch panel; and an audio video on demand (AVOD) system.
