Rockwell Collins announced in May the successful aftermarket installation of its Venue CMS on two Dornier 328DBJ executive jets that will fly for charter operator Skybird.

The installation, by independent completion and refurbishment specialist 328 Support Services of Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany, makes the 328DBJ (Dornier Business Jet) the first European-manufactured aircraft to fly with Venue, according to Rockwell Collins.

Dave Austin, Rockwell Collins’s v-p and general manager of cabin systems, emphasized Venue’s “flexible design,” which allowed installation despite a short lead time. “No other HD cabin management system spans such a wide range of aircraft,” he added, “from a forward-fit position on the King Air 350i to airliner conversions for executive use.”
