Rockwell Collins announced last month that it has been selected by Airbus to provide the rudder/brake pedal assembly for the A350 XWB family of aircraft. In the aircraft structure, the rudder/brake pedal assembly is part of the cockpit steering control mechanism. It is installed below the instrument panel.
Iowa-based manufacturer of systems for civilian and military flight-deck avionics, cabin electronics, mission communications, information management, and simulation is also supplying other key-products and advanced solutions for the A350 XWB including the aircraft’s communications, information management, landing and navigation systems, that are valued at $2.5 billion over the life of the program.
“This win tops off a comprehensive suite of offerings for the A350 XWB, which represents the most content we’ve ever had on an Airbus platform,” said Kent Statler, EVP and CEO, Commercial Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Airbus’s confidence in us to design, produce and implement innovative solutions for this new-generation aircraft was a key factor in this latest award.”
