Since 2008, Honeywell Aerospace has been a member of the SESAR program. Already, we’ve led or significantly contributed to more than 40 collaborative research projects to increase the capacity of Europe’s existing airspace by up to 73%, and make flying safer, greener and more efficient. We’re also happy to have played a leading role in major FP6, FP7, ARTEMIS and ESA projects, building the EU’s aerospace innovation capability for decades to come.
