Honeywell Expands Navigation Database Service

FMS Guided Visual Procedures Offered as Stand-Alone Option

Honeywell Aerospace, the storied North Carolina-headquartered maker of aero-engines, avionics, and bleeding-edge aeronautical technologies, is expanding its premium Navigation database subscription service to offer Flight Management System Guided Visual procedures as a stand-alone option. FMS Guided Visual procedures were initially offered only as part of the broader Required Navigation Performance – Authorization Required (RNP-AR) Navigation database subscription.

Visual approaches are commonplace at most airports on good-weather days and require a pilot to visually maneuver the aircraft to the runway while maintaining separation from traffic and terrain. However, in a challenging environment, a visual approach can create the possibility of unstable approaches. Honeywell’s Flight Management System (FMS) Guided Visual procedures provide lateral and vertical guidance, designed to create more consistent, stable approach paths.

“Honeywell’s FMS Guided Visual procedures can help reduce pilot workload, enable a more comfortable experience for passengers, and more importantly, help reduce the likelihood of an unstable approach,” said Karen Miller, general manager, Connected Aerospace, Honeywell. “Be aware that failure to maintain a stabilized approach often results in a landing that is too fast or too far down the runway, increasing the potential for a runway excursion or loss of control.”

“This is a big step forward for safer flight operations with FMS-driven Lateral Navigation/Vertical Navigation (LNAV/VNAV) procedures that greatly enhance the safety margins. Kudos to Honeywell,” said Nat Iyengar, captain – VPCOR, FDM Analyst, Jet Aviation Business Jets (Hong Kong).

Honeywell products and services benefit the virtual entirety of the world’s commercial and defense aircraft and most of humankind’s spacecraft. Honeywell’s Aerospace division builds aircraft engines, APUs, cockpit and cabin electronics, wireless connectivity systems, mechanical components and a great many additional contraptions salient to aeronautical endeavor. Honeywell’s hardware and software solutions have given rise to more fuel-efficient aircraft, more direct and on-time flights, and safer skies and airports.
