Collins Aerospace To Update ’70s Era Aircraft With Flight 2 Avionics For U.S Air Force

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.
Dow 30 component United Technologies Corporation (UTX) creates smart, sustainable solutions that are used to provide high-technology systems and services to both the building and aerospace industries. Reportedly, a unit of United Technologies Corp, Collins Aerospace Systems is being pulled in by L3Harris Technologies to be a vital part in the U.S. Air Force’s C-130H Avionics Modernization Program Increment 2 program for its fleet of 176 C-130H aircraft operated by Air National Guard and U.S. Air Force Reserve. The aircraft is set to be armed with Collins Aerospace’s Flight2TMintegration avionics system and will replace over 100 analog instruments in the current cockpit with seven multifunctional displays (MFD). Other features that will be included are three control display units (CDU), and a new digital autopilot feature to help reduce workload, improve the safety of the aircraft, and the modified display feature to help pilots to detect radar and threat information.
“Prior to our selection for the AMP INC 2 program, 190 C-130 aircraft have already been modified, or are on contract to be modified, with our proven Flight2TM avionics. Our history of successful installations played a big role in our selection,” stated Dave Schreck, vice president and general manager for Military Avionics and Helicopters at Collins Aerospace.
