Honeywell Aerospace was chosen to provide safety avionics systems to Russian airlines, Aeroflot and UTair, and aircraft leasing firm Aviation Capital Services for the operators’ latest fleets.
The Honeywell avionics suite features the latest technologies designed to maximize safety, increase passenger comfort, and reduce pilot workload based on numerous advanced safety systems compliant to current and anticipated future international mandates. These technologies include IntuVue 3D weather radar, Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS), Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), and Flight Data Recorder (FDR) and Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR).
“In Honeywell we have selected a proven and trusted avionics partner, building on a well-established relationship we already have in APUs,” said Anton Belofastov, 737/777 Fleet Manager, Aeroflot Russian Airlines. “Our 16 new 777s will benefit from the industry’s most advanced safety systems, and through our latest leasing agreement with ACS, we will also bring passengers flying our new 50-strong 737NG fleet this same level of safety and comfort.”
