Rockwell Collins recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Transas Aviation, a division of the Transas Group based in St. Petersburg, Russia. The MOU is for the American firm to address forward-fit and retrofit avionics opportunities for Russian aircraft platforms. Transas Aviation is known for its aviation solutions for Russian and international fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. According to the terms of the MoU, Rockwell Collins will expand its footprint in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS); Transas Aviation will gain access to Rockwell Collins’ global business development capabilities, engineering, and certification expertise, in addition to expansive service and support network.

Claude Alber, vice president and managing director, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) for Rockwell Collins, explained that “the Russian and CIS aviation market segment is quickly emerging and to successfully meet demand, strong relationships like we have with Transas Aviation are becoming more critical.” He continues: “Together, we will deliver robust solutions for Russian aircraft by leveraging the market-leading expertise of both companies.”

On behalf of Transas Aviation, Igor Strokin, general manager, adds: “We are pleased to establish this collaboration with Rockwell Collins—one of the global leaders in aviation electronic solutions.
