Rockwell Collins’ Flight2 avionics were on-board the modernised C-130K aircraft delivered by Cascade Aerospace to the Mexican Air Force on 23 April.

Cascade received the contract to maintain and modernise the air force's C-130K aircraft in November 2013, and Rockwell Collins was selected to provide avionics for the aircraft in March 2014.

The maintenance and modernisation programme began in 2014 and the Rockwell Collins Flight2 integrated avionics system was installed and integrated into the aircraft as an avionics upgrade.

According to Rockwell Collins, the Flight2 system will provide the air force's C-130 aircraft with unrestricted access to global airspace by meeting current communication, navigation, surveillance/air traffic management airspace requirements.

The avionics upgrade also included a full glass cockpit with new primary flight displays, digital engine instruments and a new Required Navigation Performance/Area Navigation flight management system. Cascade is also providing operational and technical training to air force personnel with the Rockwell Collins Flight2 procedural training simulator at its Abbotsford facility.
