The next evolution of RAAS, SmartRunway® and SmartLanding®, a software option for the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) increases flight crew positional awareness during taxi, take-off and landing.
According to IATA approximately 65% of recorded aviation accidents occur during approach & landing, with unstable approaches and long landings being a major contributing factor. SmartLanding promotes stabilized approaches, decreasing the risk of long landings, hard landings, tail strikes and runway excursions.
One key feature of SmartRunway and SmartLanding is the addition of visual messaging to the capabilities of the already popular runway advisory and awareness system (RAAS), which allows installation flexibility, giving pilots timely information and a quieter cockpit environment.
SmartRunway and SmartLanding is certified for most Airbus and Boeing aircraft, as well as numerous business aviation platforms including aircraft with our Primus 1000® and Primus® 2000 avionics. Simple and fast software updates to your EGPWS MK V, MK V-A, MK VII or Epic EGPWS Module (EGPWM) are available.
Operators should contact Honeywell sales at the link below or an authorized Honeywell dealer to determine if a supplemental type certificate (STC) or service bulletin exists for a simple software upgrade.
