Rockwell Collins LCD Displays Selected for Boeing 737 MAX
Rockwell Collins has a multi-year new agreement with Boeing to provide its large-format displays as standard equipment for the Boeing 737 MAX flight deck.
“Airlines will benefit from the increased real estate and dramatically enhanced visuals of these displays which will serve as the foundation for NextGen airspace technologies entering the marketplace,” said Kent Statler, executive vice president and chief operating officer of commercial systems at Rockwell Collins.
The new flight deck will feature four configurable 15.1-inch LCDs, similar to the Rockwell Collins flight displays on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
Boeing also selected some avionics upgrades for its 737 MAX from Honeywell recently. The first delivery of the 737 MAX will occur in 2017.
