- GoDirect Datalink users can now easily access fight plans from RocketRoute and ForeFlight
Honeywell (NYSE: HON) is announcing its GoDirect® Datalink service is now compatible with ForeFlight and RocketRoute flight planning applications. This new access is a standard offering for all GoDirect Datalink customers, and allows pilots to upload their ForeFlight and RocketRoute flight plans directly to their aircraft via Honeywell’s datalink network. This capability makes it even easier for pilots to manage flight operations and increase efficiency by using their preferred flight planning app.
GoDirect Datalink provides pilots with seamless, worldwide, two-way communication between an aircraft and the ground. The GoDirect Datalink services include free text messaging, oceanic and predeparture clearances, weather information, custom short codes, and Controller Pilot Data Link Communication. The service helps pilots stay connected to air traffic control wherever they are, while also making life easier for operators and maintenance teams.
In addition to the standard capabilities, RocketRoute, ForeFlight and all other customers using GoDirect Datalink will soon also have access to live flight tracking data, enhancing flight safety and on-time arrivals.
Honeywell GoDirect also now offers a new, low-cost regional datalink plan, dubbed “Datalink Light.” This new service package is designed for business and general aviation operators, and provides real-time weather information in the cockpit. It also reduces pre-flight pilot workload by uploading flight plans directly into the aircraft’s flight management system.
GoDirect Datalink is part of Honeywell’s GoDirect family — the industry’s most complete portfolio of more than 50 aviation services and applications that provide operators, flight crews and maintenance teams with critical information to manage their services and network safely and efficiently.
