Rockwell Collins has signed a repair agreement with Airbus SAS to support its fleet of five A300-600ST (Super Transporter) Beluga aircraft. The Beluga fleet is responsible for transporting aircraft parts between Airbus facilities.

“We are committed to the success of Airbus’ missions, whether it’s their commercial fleet or aircraft that support its operations,” said Thierry Tosi, vice president and general manager, Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “The Beluga fleet is a critical piece of the Airbus supply chain, so quality repairs, consistent, predictable maintenance costs, expeditious turnaround times and world class customer service are essential for successful operations.”

The agreement includes support for the following Rockwell Collins systems on board the Beluga: Communication systems, including Iridium SATCOM; HF Radio and Link 2000+ capable datalink with VDL Mode 2; radio navigation systems; surveillance systems including weather radar, traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS) and Mode S Transponder.

Earlier this year, Rockwell Collins was ranked No. 1 in Airbus’ supplier support survey. Rockwell Collins has been supporting Airbus for decades, leveraging its experience and new innovations to deliver and maintain best-in-class solutions.
