5 Reasons to Install Honeywell’s ADS-B Upgrade

April 15, 2019 | Author: Kathryn Kearney

Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Out (ADS-B Out) is set to revolutionize the global air traffic control infrastructure. It will allow for more precise and accurate aircraft positioning in crowded airspace, as well as helping to make routes more direct—which saves time and reduces fuel consumption. With less than a year to go before the deadline, here are five reasons to choose the Honeywell ADS-B upgrade:

1) Enjoy a seamless installation process. With Honeywell, your ADS-B Out upgrade will be easy and seamless, thanks to well-integrated parts and systems. Integration means you don’t need extensive post-installation testing by governmental regulatory agencies such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which increases downtime. Honeywell experts can get you mandate-compliant while also getting your aircraft back up and running in no time.

2) Avoid aftermarket bolt-on solutions. With third-party add-on products, you’ll need additional cross-certification and post-installation testing by the FAA. This means increased aircraft downtime and costs. When you choose a Honeywell partner for your ADS-B Out upgrade, you are choosing a quality solution installed by technicians with longtime expertise in the industry. Most service centers also have access to the required supplemental type certificates (STCs).

3) Ensure compatibility with future evolutions of the Honeywell cockpit. Another problem with third-party solutions is that they’re not guaranteed to remain compatible with the Honeywell cockpit as it evolves. Relying on a third-party solution could mean a lot more cost and trouble in the future as new technologies and capabilities emerge. By choosing Honeywell, you ensure future compatibility.

4) Get peace of mind with high reliability. Our decades of experience and our expertise in aerospace and avionics means we fully understand every nuance of the industry’s issues and challenges. We also have deep experience in technology and data—thanks to sophisticated analytical tools and approaches. All of this adds up to true reliability of our solutions. Our reliability is demonstrated by the fact that our solutions are used in the vast majority of aircraft cockpits today.

5) Increase your aircraft’s value with an integrated system. An integrated system is a definite plus when calculating your aircraft’s value. It translates into easier repairs and service, as well as more compatibility with future Honeywell products. It also demonstrates your commitment to excellence in choosing the reliability and outstanding performance of Honeywell solutions.

The ADS-B Out deadline is fast approaching. Make sure that your ADS-B Out implementation meets the highest standards of excellence and that your upgrade is done quickly and professionally. Honeywell’s legacy in aerospace and our expertise in servicing aircraft make it your best choice for meeting today’s mandates.
