Delta has a $62 million contract with Pennsylvania-based avionics-maker Innovative Solutions & Support to add new cockpits on 182 MD-88 and MD-90 twinjets. The cockpits will include flat-panel displays, dual GPS/wide-area augmentation system receivers and a new flight-management system. The upgrades are expected to result in immediate fuel savings because of the lighter weight of the aircraft and increased NextGen capabilities.
