Rockwell Collins said its Pro Line 21 Integrated Display System (IDS) has been certified on the Piaggio 180, a nine-passenger turboprop. The installation was performed by Jet Works in Denton, Texas. Pro Line 21 IDS offers an LCD display upgrade to existing flight decks. The system integrates displays and graphics with existing Traffic Alert Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), Terrain Awareness Warning System (TAWS), communication, flight management and autopilot systems. "Pro Line 21 IDS offers Piaggio 180 operators a path to larger informative LCD displays with new content - such as electronic charts and graphical weather available from our IFIS (Integrated Flight Information System) offering to increase situational awareness and aircraft value," said Denny Helgeson, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins.
