[Avionics Today 11-17-2015] The FAA has selected Rockwell Collins’ ARINCDirect to support flight operations for its fleet of 32 specially equipped flight inspection aircraft. Rockwell Collins will provide flight planning, flight scheduling, international trip support, aircraft data link, safety management, and flight tracking services through ARINCDirect to the government agency.
Under the new contract, the FAA will use ARINCDirect for its Flight Inspection Service, which provides airborne flight inspection of space- and ground-based navigational aids for departure, en route, and arrival flight procedures in the United States National Airspace System (NAS). The FAA is also using ARINCDirect to enhance inspection flights on select foreign navigational facilities for the U.S. Department of Defense.
