"Europe's airspace is growing more complex with increasing congestion and regulations," said Steve Timm, vice president and general manager, Flight Information Solutions for Rockwell Collins. "The expansion of our presence in Europe and new capabilities to support European operations will allow us to better serve flight departments that face these complexities and provide the most efficient and cost-effective routes possible for their flights."

The new office will be located in the General Aviation Terminal area at the new Berlin Brandenburg International Airport.

Specific enhancements to the Ascend flight planning tools have been introduced to support European operations. These enhancements include Eurocontrol Central Flow Management Unit (CFMU) routes and validation.

Ascend Regional Trip Support (RTS) for European operators is part of the company's Ascend flight information solutions offering, the industry's only integrated, one-stop suite of flight operations applications and services. Ascend RTS features self-service tools that are accessible online via Ascend Flight Manager™, as well as full service flight planning, scheduling and dispatch, weather, datalink and dedicated flight watch.

For European-based flight departments that fly outside of Europe, Rockwell Collins will continue to serve their needs with Ascend International Trip Support.
