By Tish Drake | May 6, 2010

Honeywell added Runway Analysis to its suite of pilot service offerings, the company announced Tuesday at the EBACE show in Geneva, Switzerland.

“Honeywell’s Runway Analysis provides aircraft performance data that maximizes efficiencies and delivers reliable information that helps improve flight safety,” said Candace Eckert, vice president of Services, Honeywell Aerospace. “By utilizing this service from our Global Data Center (GDC), operators will have access to more than 16,400 runway ends and more than 5,700 airports worldwide.”

Runway Analysis helps determine the maximum allowable takeoff and landing weights based on critical engine failure for specific airport/runway conditions and various airplane configurations. This service also provides information on how much fuel to load as well as which runways can be used and what obstacle clearances can be met. This new pre-flight service is an integrated part of the GDC’s flight planning system and supports a full range of aircraft platforms. Operators can begin using this service today at www.mygdc.com. Additional benefits include pre-flight data that helps reduce costs, minimized fuel costs, greater FAA compliance and reduced manual flight data input.
