Honeywell's Avionics Selected By Russian Operators For New Aircraft Fleets

MOSCOW, Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MAKS- Russian airlines Aeroflot, UTair and aircraft leasing firm Aviation Capital Services (ACS) have ordered a total of 126 avionics suites from Honeywell Aerospace (NYSE: HON) for installation on their latest fleets. Honeywell's avionics suites feature the latest systems to maximize safety, increase passenger comfort and reduce pilot workload. Deliveries start in 2013 and include:
  • 16 avionics suites for Aeroflot's latest Boeing 777 fleet.
  • 50 avionics suites for ACS' latest Boeing 737NG fleet. In 2012 Aeroflot signed a memorandum of understanding with ACS to lease 50 737NGs, extending Aeroflot's Honeywell avionics portfolio.
  • UTair has selected 40 Honeywell avionics suites for its new Boeing 737NG fleet and a further 20 Honeywell avionics suites for its new Airbus A321 fleet.


Honeywell's avionics suites bring Aeroflot, UTair and ACS numerous advanced safety systems that comply with current and anticipated future international mandates. These technologies include:
  • IntuVue 3-D Weather Radar: IntuVue helps pilots identify and plot a course around bad weather up to 320 nautical miles away. Unlike conventional 2-D systems, it collects and presents details in 3-D, making it easier for pilots to visualize the full extent of a storm through intuitive graphics. The system also helps pilots detect potentially damaging turbulence and offers the industry's first hail and lightning prediction system as an option.
  • Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS): Proven through more than 800 million flight hours, Honeywell's EGPWS uses aircraft inputs such as position, attitude, air speed and glide slope, along with internal databases of terrain, obstacles and airports, to predict potential conflicts along the planned flight path. It uses a database loaded with approximately 30,000 runways and 80,000 objects in more than 10,000 airports worldwide to improve pilots' situational awareness in the terminal vicinity.
  • Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS): TCAS includes the latest Change 7.1 standards to ensure advanced collision avoidance protection and also the latest resolution advisories to provide pilots with the best course of action. Additional capabilities include SmartTraffic, which helps pilots and air traffic control optimize long-haul flights based on surrounding traffic to reduce fuel consumption and increase traffic awareness through Hybrid Surveillance.
  • Flight Data Recorder (FDR) and Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR): Honeywell's FDR and CVR systems record activity on the flight deck and across the aircraft, to help investigators understand the chain of events leading up to an accident.
