Meeting Aviation Mandates

In the next 20 years, 7.2 billion airline passengers are expected to fill the skies. To keep this growing population of travelers—and the pilots and crew that serve them—safe, aviation safety authorities are mandating a series of upgrades to aircraft of all kinds.

These mandates focus on maximizing airspace use and increasing safety through improved location information and communications. And while meeting these mandates may seem like a burden, it can also be seen as an opportunity. Upgrades can provide you with valuable new functionality that can make your flights more efficient and potentially enhance your bottom line. Honeywell can help you make those upgrades cost-effectively and on deadline.

Safer Airspace for Everyone

While aviation mandates require effort and investment to attend to, everyone benefits in the end with more efficient, safer flights for the industry and operators alike. Advancements such as Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B), Future Air Navigation System (FANS), Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) and others promise improvements to communications, fuel efficiency, safety and availability of airspace. The key when facing mandates, then, is to make the upgrades quickly to both avoid downtime and begin capturing the potential benefits as soon as possible. 

“Our research and customer talks suggest that a large percentage of operators are not ready to meet designated mandate deadlines. Waiting until late 2019 will result in equipment shortages and scheduling problems.”Robert Wolfersteig, Program Manager, Honeywell Aerospace

Compliance Without Complexity

At Honeywell, we’ve been working on cost-effective ways for aircraft operators, the military and health aviation organizations to meet mandate requirements. By working with us and our partners, we can expedite the appropriate avionics retrofits, modifications and upgrades.

In addition, buying a Honeywell product through an authorized dealer or partner guarantees warranty protection and can help minimize maintenance issues later. Ultimately, our goal is to help you move beyond simply meeting a mandate to achieving better efficiency through upgrades to your systems. 

Our products address and provide solutions for upcoming mandates concerning: 

  • Flight data monitoring equipment 
  • Terrain and warning systems 
  • Technology and radar altimeters 
  • Upgraded cockpit voice recorders 
  • Underwater locators 
  • Threat and error management 
  • Fuel efficiency management 
  • ADS-B Out systems 
  • FANS communication and reporting 
  • Emission control management 
  • Traffic collision avoidance system

A History of Safer Skies

From the first radio compass in 1936 to the first traffic collision avoidance system in 1968, Honeywell has always been focused on making smarter, safer skies. Put our more than 100 years of aviation expertise to work for you as you upgrade your aircraft to meet mandates.

With a unique portfolio that spans network connectivity, hardware, software and services, we have solutions that will help you upgrade communications, improve flight recording and boost efficiency in ways that will help you comply with the mandates you face today and tomorrow.

Q. Why should I choose Honeywell to meet mandates rather than other providers?

A. Only Honeywell can deliver the integrated solutions that fit seamlessly into your existing Honeywell components. With other third-party add-on products, you’ll need additional cross-certification and extensive post-installation testing by the FAA, which can add to aircraft downtime and costs. Plus, the bolt-on solutions are not guaranteed to be completely compatible with current and future evolutions of the Honeywell cockpit.

Also, Honeywell solutions are found on nearly every aircraft in the world and serve 500 airports globally. We offer:

  • More than 100 years of experience and expertise in the aviation, defense and space industries
  • Unmatched ability to connect aircraft, airport and ground services
  • Critical implementation capabilities in installation, training and support
  • A history of blending physical products and software to make more connected, efficient and productive solutions
  • Analytics and software specialists focused on helping you take advantage of your data
