Rockwell’s avionics for UASF’s T-1A Jayhawks
Rockwell Collins will supply its Pro Line 21 avionics suite for the upgrade of the US Air Force’s T-1A Jayhawk trainer fleet, the company announced on 4 April.
The avionics suite will be supplied as part of a contract awarded to Field Aerospace to deliver an avionics modification programme. The work includes upgrading 178 air force T-1A aircraft with the new flight deck, along with developing 16 operational flight trainers and 14 part task trainers that match the new avionics configuration. The first prototypes will be delivered within the next year.
Craig Olson, VP and general manager, business and regional systems for Rockwell Collins, said: ‘Pro Line 21 is the workhorse of business aviation and many military platforms, bringing all the capabilities pilots want for operating in next-generation airspace, along with growth capabilities for advanced features such as integrated electronic charts and data link communications.’
