Safety has always been a priority for the aviation industry, and our continued focus is paying off with aviation remaining one of the world’s safest modes of transport. But that doesn’t mean it’s time to sit back and rest on our laurels! Continued investment in safety related products not only protects your passengers, your crew, your aircraft and your airline’s reputation, but can also deliver significant benefits across your operations and organization.
Preventing even minor in-air or on-ground incidents can significantly enhance your operations through reduced unscheduled maintenance, improved dispatch punctuality and increased operational efficiency. A good example is turbulence, which costs the global airline industry more than $100 million each year in delays, diversions and unplanned aircraft maintenance. Safety upgrades such as the IntuVue RDR400 Weather Radar, which helps pilots avoid turbulence obviously delivers significant savings.
With more than 100 years in the aviation industry; with solutions on nearly every aircraft type in the world; and with our knowledge of supporting infrastructure and system at more than 500 airports globally, we understand the world of aviation. We’ve pioneered many of the key safety technologies in use today, including developing the first ground proximity warning system (GPWS) in the 1970s, and introducing the enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS) in 1996.
Maintaining safety standards in the modern airspace with the advances in unmanned flight will require improvements in communication, navigation accuracy, sensors, situational awareness and cybersecurity. With the help of Honeywell, you can be a part of the aviation industry’s continuing history of safety.
