ORLANDO, Fla. (Oct. 29, 2012) – Rockwell Collins’ Ascend Aircraft Information Manager (AIM), the only reliable and secure data transfer and maintenance management system available for Pro Line 4™, Pro Line 21™ and Pro Line Fusion®-equipped aircraft, was recently certified for Cessna CJ1+, CJ2+, CJ3, CJ4 and Hawker Beechcraft B200 Series King Air aircraft.
AIM uploads flight critical database updates, and downloads maintenance information post-flight using available Wi-Fi or cellular links that automatically transfer information to and from the Ascend Data Center. Flight Management System (FMS), Integrated Flight Information System (IFIS), Terrain Awareness Warning System (TAWS) and Surface Management System (SMS) databases can be uploaded to the aircraft from anywhere.
“We continue to see great interest, as evident by these latest certifications, in the significant time savings that AIM’s automation brings to flight departments,” said Steve Timm, vice president and general manager, Flight Information Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
Rockwell Collins’ AIM is also certified for the following aircraft:
- Bombardier Challenger 300/604/605
- Dassault Falcon 50/50EX/2000
- Hawker 750/800XP/850XP/900XP
- Hawker Beechcraft B300 Series King Air
- Piaggio Avanti II P-180
The company expects to announce additional AIM certifications for Cessna XLS+ and Raytheon Premier I/IA aircraft by the end of the year.
AIM is a key component of Rockwell Collins Ascend Flight Information Solutions, the only offering that gives business jet operators all the tools, services and support needed for streamlined, efficient flight operations from a single source.
Through the Ascend AIM subscription service, flight departments can monitor the progress and confirm successful uploads by logging on to the Ascend web portal. AIM hardware installation includes Rockwell Collins’ IMS-3500 Information Management Server and DBU-5010E Data Base Unit. AIM enablement also comes as standard on all Pro Line Fusion platforms.
