AeroVue Cockpit Retrofit Launched By BendixKing

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BendixKing, a division of Honeywell (NYSE: HON), announced the launch of AeroVue™, a complete cockpit retrofit solution for King Air turboprop aircraft.  Derived from industry leading Honeywell avionics systems, the AeroVue Integrated Flight Deck (IFD) offers King Air operators a sophisticated avionics platform including industry-leading Flight Management System, Autopilot, Synthetic Vision, and INAV™ functionality with Electronic Charts displayed on three large 12" advanced LCD screens. AeroVue also adds wireless capability to the cockpit through the BendixKing AeroWave 100 system.

"Our discussions with avionics dealers and turbo-prop operators indicated that there is a real need in the market for a choice of cockpit retrofits," said Kevin Gould, president of BendixKing. "With AeroVue we answer that call by delivering an advanced IFD with an unrivaled pedigree that descends from Honeywell systems found on some of the most advanced business jets in the world."

Pilots will be able to operate AeroVue two ways: with a combination of button inputs, or with the optional Cursor Control Device (CCD).  The CCD will allow either pilot to control many key IFD functions with their hand firmly stabilized, a significant advantage in turbulent weather or during high-workload periods. 

AeroVue operators will enjoy the similarity with other Honeywell professional flight decks, and this enables fleet owners and operators to minimize avionics transition training across aircraft platforms. The AeroVue lineage will allow King Air operators, for the first time, to incorporate technological and safety advances designed for large business jet and transport category aircraft.

AeroVue will offer an array of industry leading features including a high-resolution Synthetic Vision system, configurable Primary Function Displays including acceleration chevrons, Horizontal Situation Indicator with arc overlay of terrain and weather, and dual Bluetooth® enabled audio panels.

"From a human factors standpoint, the AeroVue system has been conceived for ease of use," said Honeywell Flight Test Pilot Kevin O'Hara. "Having flown more than 400 test hours on Honeywell advanced avionics systems, I am confident pilots will find the AeroVue capabilities, features, and intuitive functionality combined will enhance situational awareness and flight safety."
