Honeywell will Upgrade HAITEC VIP Cockpits
[Avionics Today 05-24-2016] Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul provider HAITEC Aircraft Maintenance has selected Honeywell to supply a range of avionics products to the company’s VIP, large-cabin aircraft operators. The contract allows Germany-based HAITEC to offer Honeywell’s range of cabin and cockpit solutions to new completion and retrofit Airbus Corporate Jets, Boeing Business Jets and Gulfstream G550/G650 jets from its Erfurt facility.
Under the agreement, Honeywell will provide HAITEC customers with a range of technologies, including IntuVue 3D Weather Radar and the SmartTraffic Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS). These cockpit solutions are designed to decrease flight delays and maximize passenger comfort and safety by giving pilots better situational awareness of conditions around them. Honeywell will also provide its Ovation Select Cabin Management System, which puts lighting, seat, temperature and galley controls at the fingertips of business jet travelers while enabling them to stay comfortable and engaged at 40,000 feet.
The agreement builds on Honeywell’s existing arrangement with HAITEC to develop a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for Honeywell’s JetWave hardware for two Airbus 319 corporate jets owned and operated by HAITEC customer Tyrolean Jet Services. The agreement, inked in 2014, marked the first business aviation operator to select JetWave for fast, reliable in-flight Wi-Fi.
