Rockwell Collins has signed a maintenance agreement with L-3 Communications to provide avionics service and support for the U.S. Air Force Project Liberty Aircraft program.

The contract calls for Rockwell Collins to provide maintenance on a total of 37 Air Force MC-12Ws, which are militarized versions of the Hawker Beechcraft Super King Air 350 and feature the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 Integrated Display System. The system includes three LCDs, weather radar, engine indication system, video capability on the multi-function display and integrated flight information system.

“This maintenance contract is based on best practices that we’ve developed for commercial airlines and business jet operators for many years,” said Scott Gunnufson, vice president and general manager of Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “The contract places incentives on Rockwell Collins to reduce turnaround time and to increase component availability while controlling costs for the customer.”
