The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

17 November 2023 -"This milestone is not just about reaching a certain number, it's a testament to the unwavering vision we hold for the future of aviation and Advanced Air Mobility," said David Shilliday, vice president and general manager, AAM, Honeywell Aerospace at the Dubai Airshow. "We are committed to transforming travel and delivery services. Imagine a world where a 100-mile journey takes 45 minutes or less, and same-day package delivery is possible in every populated region of the world. With the help of our partners, we're making that vision a reality."

The company says its comprehensive product portfolio of ready-now solutions has been the cornerstone of its successful entry in the AAM market. The offerings, based on generations of experience across all sectors of aerospace, act as the brains, muscles and senses of the aircraft. Honeywell Anthem, a next-generation avionics system, serves as the "brain" behind intuitive cockpit operations. Honeywell's fly-by-wire solutions and custom-built actuation systems function as the "muscles," providing precise flight controls and the necessary redundancy for these advanced vehicles.
