In these unprecedented times, our industry - one filled with innovation, safety, hope and unity - must stand shoulder to shoulder to recover from the impact of COVID 19.
There are many logistical and financial aspects to consider when restarting operations. Once the decision has been made to return an aircraft to service, there is still significant work to be done. Of course, much will depend on how long the aircraft has been grounded – whether this has been limited to just a couple of days, where very little maintenance is needed, or a couple of months and longer where preservation of the aircraft had become necessary.
Of course, your Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM) remains the primary source of information.
That said, Honeywell provides many key products and systems for the worlds’ airline fleets, which may need updates or maintenance before an aircraft is returned to service. We have many service bulletins (SB) and Service Information Letters (SIL) in place for both mechanical and avionics components which advise of improvements or software upgrades which will increase the efficiency, reliability and performance of your fleet.
As always, you may contact your assigned field service engineer (FSE) directly, we are committed to treating every return-to-service request in an urgent manner while staying in alignment with the aircraft OEMs. Alternatively, you can also access this support through our portal.
The right part, at the right price, at the right time
Should you require urgent spare parts as you restart your operations, Honeywell Aerospace Trading (HAT) offers tailored packages of new and used equipment based on the needs of your fleet. HAT provides pre-owned certified parts (both Honeywell and other manufacturers’ products) across multiple commercial aviation platforms. We’ve recently expanded our inventory to include more than Honeywell products. We provide the complete set of line replacement units required for Boeing 737NG, 777 and Airbus 320 series aircraft, nose to tail.
Of course, we can provide Honeywell auxiliary power units, avionics, wheels & brakes and mechanical components, but we can also provide thrust reversers, flight control surfaces, integrated drive generators, landing gear and any other replacement unit that can be removed from an aircraft.
Keeping Passengers and Crew Safe in the Skies
In addition to maintaining the health and safety of your aircraft, Honeywell can also help protect your crew and passengers. We’re supplying airlines with hand sanitizer, N95 masks, gloves, respirators, gowns and other personal protective equipment that shields against viruses, including COVID-19. Find Out More.
Whether you have a quick question on a specific product or looking for general advice as you prepare to return your fleet to the skies, we’re here to listen, we’re here to support and we’re here to act with levels of technical support only Honeywell can provide. Most situations will not require a site visit and a call to our technical support will likely provide a much more immediate solution.
