China Eastern selects Rockwell Collins’ advanced avionics systems for 20 Next-Gen B737 aircraft
China Eastern has selected Rockwell Collins’ advanced avionics systems, including its Head-up Guidance System (HGS) and Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), for 20 new Next-Generation Boeing 737 aircraft. Deliveries will begin early next year. Rockwell Collins’ HGS displays critical flight information in pilots’ forward field-of-view, eliminating the need for pilots to transition to the head-down instruments. As a result, pilots can keep their attention focused on the outside world, enhancing overall situational awareness and safety. HGS also provides airlines with cost savings from fewer diversions by enabling more takeoff and landings in low-visibility conditions.
