September 29, 2015 – Rockwell Collins has received an European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) supplemental type certificate (STC) with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) validation for its PAVES Wireless media distribution system for Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft.
PAVES Wireless allows airlines to stream video content to more than 250 passengers simultaneously, with a flexible, open-software architecture that supports a wide array of apps and services. The system also enables airlines to deliver content from a range of third-party software applications, including entertainment, news, paid services and shopping.
Rockwell Collins plans to announce additional STCs for PAVES Wireless in the coming months. Earlier this year, Rockwell Collins announced its first PAVES Wireless customer, for which the system will be installed on 85 new Airbus A320 aircraft.
