Integrated Fusion avionics improve aircraft performance, safety and control

Geneva, May 27, 2024 — The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has now certified Cessna Citation CJ1+/2+ aircraft registered in Europe for an upgrade with Pro Line Fusion™, an advanced integrated avionics system by Collins Aerospace, a business owned by RTX (NYSE: RTX).

CJ1+/2+ aircraft based in Europe are now eligible for Pro Line Fusion upgrades, enabling enhanced safety, improved performance and aircraft efficiencies.

“EASA’s certification is a huge step in offering European CJ customers a solution which will not just improve aircraft operations but also prolong the life and function of an aircraft,” says Nathan Voight, Business and Regional Avionics Vice President and General Manager at Collins Aerospace. “This milestone highlights Collins’ commitment to offering support to the global community of CJ operators with flight deck technology that can improve safety, efficiency, and predictability for every single flight.”

With its modular design and intuitive technology integration, Fusion reduces pilot workload. It provides real-time data, clear visuals, and reliability to reduce the complexity of tasks during crucial flight phases.  

Evolving airspace in Europe can be navigated more easily with Fusion’s suite of improvements. These improvements include precision approaches, efficient flight paths, and GPS accuracy, even in remote areas – ensuring that pilots can safely operate in diverse and changing airspace rules.

A demo of Pro Line Fusion is on display at booth K72, run by Collins Aerospace, during the 2024 EBACE show in Geneva, Switzerland.
