Honeywell received FAA Technical Standard Order (TSO) approval for its Primus Epic-based EASy II software package for the Dassault Falcon 900 EASy series business jet.
EASy II is the second application of the SmartView family. Features of the EASy II include Honeywell’s Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS), Satellite Based Augmentation System - Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance (SBAS-LPV), the SmartRunway and Automatic Descent Mode features, and Automatic Descent Mode. Other new Dassault EASy II flight deck configuration features include FMS improvements, ADS-B Out Transponder, XM Graphical Weather and Dual Jeppessen charts.
Dassault is working to certify EASy II on the Falcon 900 EASy series with an upgrade scheduled for release later this year.
“The progress made by the EASy II avionics suite -- up to and including today’s announcement of FAA certification -- has been remarkable,” said Rob Wilson, president of Honeywell Business & General Aviation. “A wide range of upgrades, improving both efficiency and safety performance, will ensure EASy II’s place at the forefront of business avionics for years to come.”
