Older Widebodies Can Upgrade to FPI-900

Rockwell Collins Displays Now Certified for DC-10, 747 Classic Retrofit

Rockwell Collins has completed FAA Supplemental Type Certification for the FPI-920 Electronic Attitude Director Indicator/Electronic Horizontal Situation Indicator (EADI/EHSI) on DC-10 and Boeing 747 Classic aircraft.

The Collins FPI-900 series of configurable, 5-inch flat panel displays provides an economical and effective method of adding electronic flight instrument system functionality to the flight decks of standard and classic aircraft. The system's advanced display features, including terrain awareness and warning system, weather radar and flight management system map capability, meet evolving navigation, safety and regulatory requirements. The full-color, active-matrix liquid crystal displays feature proprietary compensation techniques providing the pilot wide viewing angles and clear viewability under all cockpit lighting conditions.

The FPI-900 series allows airlines to reduce spares provisioning by applying a common part number display on multiple aircraft types for a variety of standard applications such as attitude direction indicators or horizontal situation indicators. The displays offer increased reliability over electromechanical instruments by eliminating all moving parts. Available maintenance pages also allow avionics technicians to view display inputs, enhancing system diagnostics.
