Collins:
    DC10-30 KSSU configuration (AINS-70)
    Canadair RJ

Honeywell
    757/767, 747-400, 777
    Fokker 100

Honeywell/Sextant
    A320 etc.

Smiths Industries (was Lear-Siegler)
    737-300/400/500 & 600/700/800

Nearly everybody is making what they call FMS/GPS for retrofit
applications, but most lack performance management, which drives
autothrottles.
