Rockwell Collins’ Airshow 500 is a thoroughly modernized, lighter-weight drop-in replacement for the Airshow 410. It provides on-aircraft control of a wide variety of options and it is compatible with legacy monitors as well as newer widescreen monitors with digital inputs. Airshow 500 is also available in a flange mount option to meet any aircraft installation requirement.  

Airshow 500 is compatible with Rockwell Collins’ Airshow interactive app for the Apple® iPad®. Using an onboard wireless access point (WAP) connected to the Airshow 500, passengers can take advantage of the app’s industry-first panorama view which displays a moving map of the outside world from any direction the iPad is pointed, as well as interactive views including a user-controlled information ticker.

“Airshow 500 brings unprecedented value to the light business jet market with its wide breadth of features, capability and visual quality,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins.

Airshow 500 will be available by the end of the year through Rockwell Collins-authorized dealers.
