Honeywell to Provide EBAS for 737 MAX
Boeing has selected the Honeywell electronic bleed airsystem (EBAS) for its 737 MAX planes.
The EBAS produces warm air to the wings of the aircraft to prevent potential icing by taking airflow from the engines to provide cabin pressurization and environmental cabin controls.
“As a provider of 737 MAX products and services (expected to exceed current NG ship volumes), we play an instrumental role in maximizing the reliability of Boeing aircraft to improve on-time performance so that ultimately passengers can get where they are going in the most efficient manner possible,” said John Bolton, president of air transport and regional operations at Honeywell Aerospace.
Boeing plans first delivery of the 737 MAX planes in 2017.
