New Delhi. 08 November 2016 . Honeywell’s Primus Epic integrated cockpit system has been selected by Cessna Aircraft Company for its new Cessna Citation Hemisphere large-cabin business jet. Honeywell’s transoceanic flight management system — including SmartView for lower minimums, precision inertial reference sensors and a comprehensive Connected Aircraft solution — will enable Hemisphere operators to reach destinations faster and with reduced cost.
“We continue to lead the way in business aviation by providing our customers with advanced cockpit technologies and reliable connectivity systems that are ready to fly anywhere, any time and for less,” said Brian Sill, president, Commercial Aviation, Honeywell Aerospace. “Honeywell engines already power the Citation Longitude, and this agreement expands our relationship with Cessna in the large-cabin aircraft segment.”
Cessna’s Citation Hemisphere aircraft will come well-equipped with Honeywell’s Primus Epic cockpit, which will provide pilots with a conformal 3-D view of the outside world even in challenging weather conditions such as fog, rain or snow to improve situational awareness. Honeywell’s Connected Aircraft solution includes satellite communications and connectivity airtime as well as cockpit, cabin, and maintenance apps and services.
