On 20 December, Rockwell Collins signed an agreement with Taqnia Aeronautics and its subsidiaries to collaborate on military rotary- and fixed-wing avionics opportunities in Saudi Arabia. The agreement will focus on aircraft assembled, manufactured and upgraded in-country.

A supplier to the Kingdom’s Armed Forces for over 50 years, Rockwell Collins already works with a private Saudi company in manufacturing and supporting avionics and military communications.

Rockwell Collins is expanding its presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and is committed to providing technical job opportunities to local citizens (and) contribute to economic growth and knowledge transfer,” said Claude Alber, vice president and managing director, Europe, Middle East and Africa for Rockwell Collins

The agreement with Rockwell Collins is a major step in the evolution of local Saudi aerospace industry capabilities which is fully in line with Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Program 2020,” said Maj.-Gen. (retired) Ali Al-Ghamdi, CEO of Taqnia Aeronautics.
