Turkish Airlines has selected Rockwell Collins to provide its EP-8100

Posted 16 July 2018 · Add Comment

Turkish Airlines has selected Rockwell Collins to provide its EP-8100 image generators with JVC laser illuminated projectors for pilot training for the airline’s new and existing fleet of Boeing 737 MAX, 777-300 and 787 Dreamliner aircraft, as well as its Airbus A320neo, A330 and A350 XWB aircraft. This new contract is for 14 new visual systems, nine firm with options for five more.

 

This latest order expands on the company’s strong relationship with Turkish Airlines – all 14 of Turkish Airlines’ existing full flight simulators already include Rockwell Collins visual systems. The airline recently inaugurated a new 18-bay simulator building and has to date installed four new simulators. The new contract doubles the number of operating simulators by 2020 as the airline continually works to meet its growth plans.

“Because of our commonality and Turkish Airlines’ familiarity with existing maintenance procedures, practices and operations, we will hit the ground running and ensure delivery of the first systems within the next six months,” said Nick Gibbs, vice president and general manager of Simulation & Training Solutions at Rockwell Collins. “Turkish Airlines will also benefit from the system’s open, scalable architecture that allows for the easy addition of new features and enhancements.”

The EP-8100 provides unmatched procurement cycles of five to eight years, and support in excess of 15 years. Through its industry-leading image quality and projector/display support, pilots view a high fidelity visual scene that significantly improves the training experience.

The systems will be manufactured at Rockwell Collins’ facility in Salt Lake City, Utah, with installation and final site work to be completed in Istanbul, Turkey. With the new Istanbul airport opening in October of this year, Rockwell Collins also will be providing a new airport model to support flight crew training.
