Denmark-based cargo carrier Star Air is retrofitting Rockwell Collins’ large-format flight displays for its fleet of 11 767-200 aircraft.

The new units, inspired by the systems installed on 787 aircraft, have been developed by Rockwell Collins and Boeing for the 757 and 767 and feature three 15.1inch LCD displays to replace six cathode ray tube displays.

Carsten Hvidegaard Holm, vice president technical for Star Air, said that the new units would provide “significant weight savings” (Rockwell Collins estimates 68kg), and confirmed that commonality with 787, 737 MAX and 777X units was a “key selling point”.

Steve Timm VP and general manager of air transport systems for Rockwell Collins confirmed that the company was seeing an increase in demand for 757/767 flight deck upgrades.
