Item Assist Survey 2021, Section 2: Flight Deck Avionics, Cabin Administration Techniques and Airborne Connectivity

Garmin is after all over again the Overall Typical leader in the Flight Deck Avionics phase in AIN’s 2021 Products Support Survey, with audience giving the Olathe, Kansas-dependent avionics producer a ranking of 8.6, adopted intently by second-area finisher Collins Aerospace’s ranking of 8.3 and Honeywell’s 8.1 rating. Universal Avionics’ 8.2 rating, a .1 reduce from previous yr, is broken out separately as the number of responses fell just down below our threshold for comparison with the other OEMs.

In the Cabin Management Techniques (CMS) segment, Honeywell led with an Overall Typical score of 8.3, with a tie for second place amongst Collins and Gulfstream Cabin Administration, every single of which obtained an Overall Typical ranking of 7.9—a .1 raise for Collins but a .4 decrease for Gulfstream. New to this year’s CMS listing is Cessna/Beechcraft Cabin Administration, which attained a 7.8 All round Regular for a third-place end, ahead of Lufthansa Technik at a ranking of 7.4.

In the new Airborne Connectivity segment, Gogo Enterprise Aviation was the leading finisher with an All round Regular of 8.5, on par with AIN readers’ rating of the Broomfield, Colorado-based mostly business last yr in the Cabin Electronics segment. Honeywell was just powering at 8.3, a .2 acquire from final yr. Satcom Direct finished 3rd with an All round Normal rating of 8.2, which was .3 lower than in the 2020 study. Collins gained an 8.3 score, up from 7.8 a yr ago but  with a smaller sized range of respondents avoiding immediate comparison with the other OEMs.
