Boeing and Embraer have selected the aviation safety issue of runway excursions as the next opportunity to deepen an unfolding, eight-month-old partnership between the airframers.
The two companies will collaborate on a new set of runway situation awareness tools that will be provided to operators of Boeing and Embraer jets.
Tools will include better procedures, an instructional video and a new function for pilots to avoid rolling off the runway after landing due to over-speed, mechanical failure or misjudging the distance required to come to a stop.
Both types of jet families already incorporate certain features, such as the Honeywell SmartRunway system, that help pilots make better decisions about landing distances.
Boeing and Embraer will collaborate on a new cockpit function that adds information about the runway landing distance on the head-up display.
It is the latest step in a growing relationship between Boeing and Embraer since last April, when the companies signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on more commercial and military programmes.
Boeing has already agreed to collaborate on the Embraer KC-390 and Super Tucano military aircraft. Both companies are also working to develop a sugarcane-based biofuel, along with other partners including General Electric.
