Honeywell’s Flight Management System Takes Off for Airbus

Airbus has chosen Honeywell’s Flight Management System (FMS) for its A320, A330, and A350 Aircraft.

The new FMS promises to deliver more efficient, reliable, and safe operation of these widely used airplanes. The system will also include connectivity with the outside world, including Electronic Flight Bags which can ease the pilot workload and enhance fuel savings. It will also allow for future enhancements without hardware changes.

“The new FMS combines multiple current FMS offerings for Airbus into one single solution for their A320, A330 and A350 platforms,” said Jim Currier, president, Electronic Solutions, Honeywell Aerospace. “Importantly, the new FMS hardware is 15 times more capable than current hardware and enables a path to future enhancements without hardware changes.”
