Honeywell Helps Airbus A350 XWB Soar

PHOENIX, June 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A multitude of Honeywell (NYSE: HON) products contributed to the successful maiden flight of the new Airbus A350 XWB ( Xtra Wide-Body) aircraft. The new A350 family provides long-range capability with seating capacities from 270 to 350 passengers and offers optimal efficiency through the A350 XWB's commonality of systems.


As a Tier 1 Airbus designee, Honeywell provided a more comprehensive package of mechanical and avionics (electronics) products to the A350 XWB than any other current Airbus platform. Honeywell's integrated mechanical components also helped make the aircraft more efficient, reliable and comfortable than ever before. The integration of critical systems helped reduce the overall weight of the aircraft, and the advanced HGT1700 Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) led to a 10 percent reduction in specific APU fuel use and an equivalent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.

Honeywell's avionics for the A350 XWB are built upon proven Airbus systems, providing the most advanced Flight Management System (FMS) and Aircraft Environment Surveillance System (AESS) available for a greater level of overall cockpit integration for pilots. Honeywell also provided passengers and crew with enhanced air management systems for a more refreshed, long-haul flying experience.

AirSIB: A Market Differentiator The A350 XWB Air System Integration Bench (AirSIB) is an integrated test bed for the A350 XWB that enabled Honeywell to observe and confirm interactions between control systems and physical characteristics of mechanical hardware.

By using AirSIB for the A350 XWB, Honeywell was able to test the APU and all of its air generation and conditioning systems on the platform, making sure all major mechanical and electrical systems work flawlessly together. This was the first time all the major mechanical work packages for an air management system were integrated into a single lab and run together. AirSIB greatly improves system maturity compared to past programs, where these mechanical systems would only have come together on the first aircraft.
