Collins Aerospace Buys FlightAware

FlightAware – the digital aviation company that has been delivering global flight tracking platforms, analytics, predictive technology and historical and real-time flight data since 2005 – is being purchased by Collins Aerospace.

Collins Aerospace is a subsidiary of Raytheon Technologies.  The purchase price was not disclosed.

Collins plans to integrate FlightAware with its information management services portfolio within the avionics strategic business unit upon closing on the transaction, which is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.

Dave Nieuwsma, head of avionics at Collins Aerospace, said global connectivity impacts aviation’s every segment, and FlightAware’s analytics, customer experience and data collection capabilities will help Collins optimize the connected system’s power in support of clients.

“FlightAware’s flight tracking and data platform, the largest in the world, has the potential to deliver new capabilities and innovations across our entire business,” Nieuwsma said.
