Runway Awareness and Advisory System

April 18, 2012 - 3:42pm

StandardAero Business Aviation has completed its first two Dassault EASy II Avionics flight-deck upgrades on the Dassault Falcon 900EX/DX/LX. The first was completed at the company’s Augusta, Ga. facility and the most recent at its completions center in Springfield, Ill (SPI). Additional installations are scheduled to be done at the Springfield, Los Angeles and Houston service centers. The upgrade includes

Orlando-based StarPort received an FAA supplemental type certificate (STC) for installation of Honeywell’s Runway Awareness and Advisory System (RAAS) in a Hawker 850XP. The project took three months and 450 man-hours because StarPort engineers and technicians had to install a Honeywell EGPWS before adding the RAAS, according to avionics manager John Coon.

Stevens Aviation last month said it has gained an STC for installation of Honeywell’s runway awareness and advisory system (Raas) in the Learjet 60, adding another element to a major cockpit and cabin upgrade program for the model. The Raas software is part of the airplane’s enhanced ground proximity warning system.

Honeywell’s new SmartRunway and SmartLanding technologies have received FAA Technical Standard Order approval. The approval clears the way for installation of the new products as software upgrades to the company’s Mark V and Mark VII enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS). Installation takes one hour, according to a spokesman.

Honeywell yesterday received TSO approval for SmartRunway and SmartLanding, which are both software upgrades for the company’s Mark V and Mark VII enhanced ground proximity warning systems (EGPWS) that can help reduce runway excursions and incursions. The systems require just one hour of aircraft downtime for installation and minimal pilot training, Honeywell said.

Honeywell last week at the Paris Air Show launched SmartLanding, a product intended to reduce runway excursions by alerting pilots if the aircraft’s approach is unstable and at risk for an unsafe landing. “Runway excursions cost the global industry about $900 million every year,” said Honeywell Aerospace vice president for airlines Mike Madsen.

An enhancement to Honeywell’s Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) that aids pilots at unfamiliar airports in reduced visibility will be a factory option on most EGPWS-equipped Cessna Citations.

Since the introduction of the enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS) in 1996, more than 16,000 airplanes worldwide have been fitted with the Honeywell-manufactured safety device. In that time, the CFIT (controlled flight into terrain) accident rate among aircraft that carry EGPWS has dropped to zero.

Honeywell has started demonstrating an optional software upgrade to its enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS) that is intended to curb runway incursions and improve airport safety. Called the runway awareness and advisory system (RAAS), the software-only modification uses the EGPWS unit’s internal database of runways and GPS-derived position to increase pilot situational awareness during taxi, takeoff and landing.
