Flight2 for Chilean P-3 Orions
The avionics system was selected by IMP Aerospace as part of upgrade and life-extension work being carried out on the fleet.
Flight2 is an integrated avionics suite of communications, navigation and surveillance equipment that integrates new-generation avionics with legacy sensors, radios, autopilot and aircraft systems. It has advanced displays and an integrated military/civil flight management system.
Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director, Americas and global services business development for Rockwell Collins, said: ‘Chilean navy pilots will experience greater situational awareness and communications capabilities with the highly advanced avionics on board these aircraft.
‘This selection further solidifies our position as a key provider of P-3 cockpit modernisation for military organisations around the world.’
Rockwell Collins will provide in-country, on-site field service engineering and logistics support to IMP Aerospace during the aircraft modifications and test.
