Honeywell has signed a $55-million agreement with leasing company Boullioun Aviation Services to supply a suite of avionics products for 30 firm and 30 optional new Boeing 737 Next Generation aircraft.

Under the agreement Honeywell will supply its Quantum Line communication and navigation systems, weather radar with predictive wind shear detection, airborne collision avoidance system (ACAS II), flight data and cockpit voice recorders and flight data acquisition and management system (FDAMS).

This equipment is in addition to the standard fit Honeywell equipment. Driven by the Honeywell VIA computing platform this includes liquid crystal primary flight instruments, autopilot, navigation system and Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS).

The company has also announced that it has been selected by Pratt & Whitney to supply its Airline Communication and Reporting System (ACARS) message management system for the company's Large Commercial Engines Group.

The system will decode ACARS messages, route them to the appropriate P&W locations and automatically export the data to the company's Engine Health Management (EHM) programme.
