Honeywell selected to provide Avionics and Auxiliary Power Units for fleet of 60 A320 aircraft

Honeywell Specialty Materials : 20 July, 2006  (Company News)
Honeywell announced today that it has been selected by Air Deccan, India
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The selected Honeywell systems include the 131-9[A] APU and Full Avionic Suite that includes Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System, Airborne Collision Avoidance System, Weather Radar (RDR-4B), solid state Flight Data Recorder & Cockpit Voice Recorders, QuantumTM Line Communications & Navigation System and Air Data Inertial Reference System.

Delivery of Avionics equipment and APU will begin with aircraft deliveries this year and will continue through 2011. As part of the agreement, Honeywell was also selected to provide APU Maintenance Service for the 131-9 APUs. Service will be provided from Honeywell’s Repair Center in Singapore.

“A common configuration of mechanical and avionics components, Honeywell’s proven regional support from Singapore and inventory nmanagement will help Air Deccan control their maintenance costs in a competitive airline environment,” said Garrett Mikita, Vice President, Airlines, Honeywell Aerospace.

Capt. Gopinath, Managing Director of Air Deccan said, “This partnership is based on the Honeywell’s long-term commitment to Air Deccan and Indian air travel by its value offering including superior technology and breadth of solutions – thus making air travel affordable and safe.”

Honeywell’s selection were evaluated by Air Deccan’s operating team lead by Mr. Warwick Brady, COO; Mr. G. Mohankumar, CFO & Mr. Ryan Goveas, Engineering Head, who were impressed with Honeywell’s close support and relationship that helped contribute to Air Deccan’s remarkable growth.

An APU is a small gas turbine engine that provides compressed air and electrical power for main-engine starting and operation of aircraft systems on the ground or in flight. EGPWS, invented by Honeywell, provides a terrain display and alerts the flight crew if the aircraft approaches too close to terrain.

Honeywell’s patented ACAS (aka TCAS, Traffic Collision Avoidance System) provides a display of surrounding aircraft and sounds a warning if another aircraft comes too close for safety. FDR & CVR recorders record flight data parameters and cockpit voice conversation for analysis. CNS enables cockpit crew to interact with ground stations such as Air Traffic Controller. ADIRS helps pilots keep the Aircraft on course by sensing its movement in all three dimensions.

Based in Phoenix, Honeywell’s aerospace business is a leading global provider of integrated avionics, engines, systems and service solutions for aircraft manufacturers, airlines, business and general aviation, military, space and airport operations.
