Honeywell to provide avionics for second-generation E-Jets

  • 22-Feb-2013 09:26 EST

Honeywell and Embraer signed an agreement worth $2.8 billion over its lifetime to provide Honeywell's Primus Epic as the integrated avionics system for Embraer's second-generation of the E-Jet aircraft family. Avionics can include navigation, communications, and display systems in the cockpit to give pilots and crew critical information to help them fly safely, accurately, and efficiently. Primus Epic integrates these systems into a compact offering and adds innovative technologies such as synthetic vision and advanced flight management for better situational awareness and more fuel-efficient, direct approaches at airports. The second-generation E-Jets equipped with Honeywell's Primus Epic is planned to enter service in 2018, with the program expected to launch later this year.
