GE Aviation to Provide Flight Management for Boeing 737 Max
Boeing has selected GE Aviation to provide the flight management system for its 737 MAX aircraft.
The flight management system will control the aircraft track to the time of arrival within 10 seconds to any point in the flight plan, GE said.
"Our system is a key part of most airlines' plan to conduct Required Navigation Performance (RNP) operations, and allows them to realize significant cost savings with lower fuel consumption while benefiting the environment with reduced emissions,” said George Kiefer, vice president of avionics at GE Aviation.
