We trot out icons of a grey-haired, bearded old man and a...

Steel, aircraft, the right pilots, and certain equipment — such as night-vision systems — have all posed challenges to operators striving to meet high customer demand. 2006 PROVED TO BE A YEAR PACKED WITH ACTION — ON THE BATTLEFRONT, IN OPERATIONS, sales campaigns, and regulatory debates, and on the picket lines. The helicopter community found itself in the unusual position of seeing...

Honeywell has taken its lumps in the helicopter market. In the last few years, its LTS101 has been tarred--unfairly, many would say--as the culprit in reliability problems that plagued the U.S. Coast Guard's HH-65 Dolphin fleet.
