Honeywell Aerospace was awarded “Engineering Innovation of the Year” for its Weather Information Service at the Middle East Aviation Business Awards on Sunday, October 25th in Dubai.
Hosting the annual Aviation Business Awards (ABA) is publisher ITP Business, producer of Aviation Business magazine, ArabianSupplyChain.com and Logistics Middle East magazine. The event has evolved since its inception in 2007, quickly becoming a front-runner promoting the latest achievements and innovation in the Middle East aerospace industry.
Honeywell’s Weather Information Service provides pilots with continuously updated, in-flight weather information delivered directly through a mobile application or tablet. The service builds on the success of its current graphical weather product and also complements the company’s 3D Weather Radar. The service is ground-breaking because compared to current systems where pilots are often referring to outdated printouts or occasional radio dispatches, some hours old, the Honeywell service saves time for pilots, reduces fuel costs for airlines and increases safety and comfort for passengers.
