[Avionics Today 08-14-2015] Honeywell Aerospace and the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) have signed an agreement with the aim to increase aircraft availability, reduce maintenance grounding time and improve mission success. The service-based agreement looks to streamline collaboration on essential repair, maintenance and overhaul services for the air force’s fleets.

The agreement simplifies the contractual process between the RNLAF and Honeywell for a wide range of services, including supplying parts, upgrades, product integration and long-term servicing agreements.
Today, Honeywell has avionics and mechanical technologies on more than 100 aircraft within the RNLAF fleet, including the CH-47 Chinook, C-130 Hercules, AH-64 Apache and F-16 Fighting Falcon.

The agreement also includes a provision for future performance-based logistics support, which involves a commitment to ensure the necessary number of aircraft are available at all times, to improve mission readiness and return on investment for the operator.
