Dassault Falcon 7X, 900LX and 2000LX passengers will be the first to experience the latest cabin innovations from Rockwell Collins on the FalconCabin HD+ cabin management system. The new optional features include Skybox, unveiled this week by Rockwell Collins at the NBAA Convention. Skybox makes it possible to have Hollywood-protected content in the aircraft play on a television in the cabin or on individual iPads. It is also possible to take content from individual iPads and display it on the cabin television. Skybox allows for the free flow of iTunes content, documents and similar information among iPads and the aircraft resident Skybox system.

FalconCabin HD+ also features Rockwell Collins’s recently announced Airshow app for the iPad as an option.

A spokesman for Rockwell Collins told AIN, “We are bringing the full Apple experience to life on the aircraft. Now you can do in the airplane what you do at home.”
