Ensuring Flight Safety
The advancement of Urban Air Mobility and increase in commercial travel will challenge the modern airspace. Gain visibility and control of hazards to keep your flights safe—from block time and ground turns through all phases of flight.
Let Us Help You Fly
Urban Air Mobility will radically change flight and the way we move around cities, and at Honeywell, we're working to make it a reality.
New Tech for the Hazards of Weather
360-degree views and crowdsourcing may be the latest in consumer spaces, but they have a vital role to play in managing hazardous weather for aviation too.
Safety with the Connected Aircraft
The Connected Aircraft can help streamline operations and improve passenger experiences, but it can also greatly improve the safety of flight for all involved.
Runway accidents make up 25% of commercial aviation incidents. Reduce the risk for your planes with Honeywell solutions, designed to aid pilots in safe taxi, takeoff and landing. Our solutions can help:
- Increase flight crew awareness
- Pinpoint precise airplane location to aid landings
- Preview runways and airports
We developed the first Ground Proximity Warning System in the 1970s and has continuously improved the technology since. We offer multiple Enhanced GPWS products that can:
- Protect against controlled flight into terrain (CFIT) and wind shear
- Provide unprecedented situational awareness through synthetic vision
- Offer aural alerts, visual annunciations and terrain display
Our weather management solutions use tools such as 3-D volumetric scanning, 360-degree views and in-air pilot-sourced weather information to:
- Improve weather hazard detection by 26%
- Reduce turbulence-related incidents by 45%
- Inform routing and maneuvering decisions
