GENEVA - Cessna Citation CJ1+/2+ aircraft registered in Europe can now be upgraded with the advanced functionality of the Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion integrated avionics system after receiving certification approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Collins Aerospace is an RTX business.

"Clearing this certification hurdle is a major step forward in providing European CJ customers with a solution that not only enhances their aircraft operations but can also extend the life and functionality of an aircraft," said Nathan Voight, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Avionics at Collins Aerospace. "This milestone underscores Collins' commitment to supporting the global network of CJ operators with the flight deck technology that makes operations safer, more efficient and predictable each and every flight."

Fusion's modularity and intuitive technology integration improves pilot workload, providing real-time data, visual clarity and predictability that simplifies operations during the most critical stages of flight.

As European airspace continues to modernize, Fusion's suite of technology enhancements work together to enable precision approaches, facilitate efficient flight paths and ensure pinpoint positioning, even in remote areas - enabling pilots to confidently navigate evolving and diverse airspace regulations.
