Jeppesen (Booth 1351) has teamed up with Honeywell to develop what it claims is the first integrated navigation data service (INDS) data manager application for the iPad. It will be available later in the summer, initially for operators of the Pilatus PC-12 NG with the Honeywell Primus Apex integrated flight deck and Aspen Avionics CG100P connected panel. The INDS solution greatly simplifies the update process by wirelessly uploading or downloading critical Jeppesen and Honeywell flight data to the onboard avionics.
EBACE co-exhibitors SECA and Vector Aerospace (Booth 1647) are looking to talk to business and regional jet operators and OEMs about their global engine management service (Gems) program. Gems combines the expertise and capabilities of SECA, based at Le Bourget in Paris, and Vector Aerospace’s Engine Services Atlantic (Canada) and UK divisions. Both SECA and Vector are EADS subsidiaries.
Satcom Direct (Booth 455) has signed an agreement with Honeywell to be a distributor for the Inmarsat GX Aviation Ka-band service, for which Honeywell itself is a value-added reseller. The Florida-based communications specialist will also be a distributor of GX avionics equipment. The service is scheduled to be commercially available early in 2015 and is designed to offer “consistent, high-capacity broadband coverage around the world.” For example, users should be able to stream Internet content live or hold uninterrupted video calls from 30,000 feet.
Honeywell is making flying the Pilatus PC-12 NG easier with four new iPad apps optimized for the big single-engine turboprop. The apps cover maintenance and operational solutions and is to be available in Apple’s App Store in July, although the myGDC app is already available, with an updated version coming in July. More information is available at Honeywell’s EBACE exhibit (Booth 487).
Inmarsat and partner Honeywell are poised to launch what Inmarsat describes as the “game-changing Global Xpress aviation service,” that will ultimately provide high-capacity broadband coverage and worldwide data transfer rates of up to 50 mbps.
Inmarsat (Booth 921), a major player in mobile satellite communication services, offered a preview of GX Aviation at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany, last month.
Flight planning and support group Jetex Flight Support forged a new alliance with Honeywell to jointly offer their flight-planning, aircraft datalink, flight-following and international trip support services, the companies announced today at EBACE.
Fast-growing flight planning and support group Jetex Flight Support has forged a new alliance with Honeywell. At the EBACE show yesterday, the companies signed an agreement to jointly offer their flight-planning, aircraft datalink, flight-following and international trip support services.
Honeywell (Booth 487) is at EBACE 2013 exhibiting a fully functioning mock-up of its Ovation Select cabin management system (CMS) and the company is also highlighting a number of avionics upgrades.
Honeywell already delivers synthetic vision for business aircraft under the brand name SmartView, a system that uses the terrain database of the company’s renowned Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS), merged with head-up display (HUD) symbology. It then presents the SVS graphics on an aircraft’s primary flight displays (PFD).
This year’s early round of business aviation market forecasts–from Bombardier, Embraer and Honeywell–present a mixed picture where a moderately optimistic outlook for the U.S. still fails to outweigh economic uncertainty in Europe and slowing growth in Asia.
