[Avionics Today July 14. 2014] Mexican carrier VivaAerobus has selected an avionics package from Rockwell Collins for its fleet of Airbus A320s, which will begin deliveries in 2015. Included in the package are the GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR) and the MutliScan ThreatTrack weather radar system.
The MMR enables Required Navigation Performance (RNP)/Area Navigation (RNAV) flight procedures along with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) operations.
“VivaAerobus pilots will operate with the most advanced technology for avoiding damaging weather threats and be better equipped to precisely navigate challenging approaches,” said Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director, the Americas for Rockwell Collins. “The airline also is well-positioned for any future airspace mandates that may emerge in Latin America.”
