[Avionics Today 05-26-2016] Honeywell signed an agreement with Empire Aviation Group to provide its full suite of GoDirect connectivity services and products for the cabin and cockpit. The technologies, developed by Honeywell's recent acquisition, Satcom1, will be installed on the entire fleet of aircraft managed by Empire Aviation Group.
The GoDirect services and systems aim to enhance crew and passenger productivity, as well as boost passenger entertainment for Empire Aviation Group's business jet owners and charter clients. Honeywell's products include the AvioIP cabin router, which helps enable more reliable in-flight connectivity for passengers by giving them Internet access, email, videoconferencing and smartphone usage. Pilots will also have access to Honeywell's Global Data Center in the cockpit, where real-time flight support and weather information services help them increase efficiency, measure fuel usage and avoid delays.
