Gulfstream Adds CCD to G150 Cockpit

 - October 23, 2006, 10:02 AM

In a bid to bring the functionality of its larger siblings to the G150 midsize jet, Gulfstream announced that it is adding pilot and copilot cursor control devices (CCDs) to the airplane’s Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics system. The CCD for the G150 will be nearly identical to the controllers in the G550, G500, G450 and G350, mounted in roughly the same locations as those models on the cockpit sidewalls. The major difference in the designs is that the CCDs in the large airplanes control Honeywell PlaneView avionics.
