JetSupport brings Fusion to the B200
The Pro Line Fusion retrofit is now available for King Air B200 and King Air B300 series aircraft, courtesy of JetSupport in the Netherlands.

Amsterdam-based JetSupport has recently installed the first European Rockwell Collins' Pro Line Fusion retrofit on a King Air B200, following recent EASA supplementary type certification.

Previously certified by the FAA in 2016, the upgrade will make the King Air compliant with all future 2020 mandates and requirements, such as ADS-B out, LPV and Synthetic Vision.

The upgrade provides turnkey compliance with airspace modernisation deadlines and offers one of the largest widescreen primary flight displays available. Rockwell Collins claims it enhances the aircraft's value with the same icon-based, touchscreen technology found on new-production King Airs and is the first touchscreen primary flight display to be certified for operational use.

Senior director of commercial sales and services, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Didier Perrin says: “The installation completed by JetSupport is proof of the trust customers have in the Pro Line Fusion product, as well as the quality work provided by Rockwell Collins dealers located around the world. Pro Line Fusion breathes new life into these aircraft, bringing compliance with airspace mandates, and it sets the stage for flying in the single European sky.”

Features designed to improve situational awareness and reduce pilot workload include a fully-loaded package of baseline equipment for operation in modernising global airspace comprising ADS-B mandate compliance, SBAS-capable GNSS, localised performance with vertical guidance approaches and radius-to-fix legs. There are three 14.1-inch widescreen LCDs with advanced graphics, configurable windows and touchscreen interfaces, matching the display configuration of factory-new models, and high resolution synthetic vision is a standard feature, even for its patented airport dome and extended runway centrelines.

Touch-interactive maps have eyes-forward flight planning, high resolution topography, real-time onboard weather radar overlays, obstacles and special-use airspace and search patterns. Geo-referenced electronic navigation charts display own-ship aircraft position and the database can be updated using a standard USB drive port on the front of the displays.
