Collins Aerospace is offering new capabilities to Citation CJ3 owners in Europe with EASA approval of Pro Line Fusion avionics as a retrofit.

The offering has had “great success” in the U.S., the company says, with 32 upgrades on CJ3 in-service aircraft completed.

Pro Line Fusion improves pilots’ interface with the flight deck by replacing the factory-installed Pro Line 21 LCD displays with three 14.1 in. touchscreen LCD displays with configurable windows. Other features include synthetic vision as a standard feature, geo-referenced electronic navigation charts that display aircraft position, and a package of baseline equipment for operation in modernizing global airspace beyond ADS-B compliance.

“We continue to see aftermarket demand for the features and capabilities of Pro Line Fusion,” said Christophe Blanc, vice president and general manager of Collins business and regional avionics segment.

Collins Aerospace has meanwhile enhanced its “Stage” on demand service for business aviation aircraft with wireless and wired options for entertainment, information and business.

The system has been installed for the first time on a factory-direct aircraft, a Dassault Falcon jet that recently entered service. Stage provides access to thousands of wireless inflight entertainment options, such as movies and TV shows, and devices including phones and tablets.

The new wired option provides additional capabilities, such as integration with Venue Cabin Management service to play content on bulkhead monitors and seat displays. The Falcon’s cabin includes both the wired and wireless options.

“Stage on demand has always stood out in the market by providing customers with the same kind of streaming experience they have on the ground – access to blockbuster movies, popular television shows, sports feeds, games and music,” said Collins cabin systems director Jon Kounkel.
