  • 04-Jan-2010 08:44 EST

Rockwell Collins was selected to provide avionics and pilot controls for the MC-21 family of single-aisle aircraft being developed by Russian-based Irkut Corp. The first of three aircraft variants is due to enter service in 2016. Rockwell Collins won these packages together with Russian partner companies Concern Avionica for avionics components and Aviapribor for the aircraft's pilot controls. Rockwell Collins will provide engineering support and a suite of complementary avionics and pilot controls. Aircraft development is expected to begin in early 2010. Aircraft manufacturing will take place at Irkut's plant in Irkutsk, Russia. Avionics development will take place in both Russia and the U.S.
