Honeywell Eyes System Upgrades For Ageing Regional Military Aircrafts
Director of Sales in Asia-Pacific for Honeywell Derek Lockett says the firm is eyeing an upcoming opportunity in order to offer key systems upgrades to Malaysia’s ageing military aircrafts in a bid to help extend the life of the fleet. With Honeywell’s presence in the region expanding through the addition of sales staff, Lockett sees immense growth opportunity and by extension the potential of Malaysia where there is a burgeoning race amongst the commercial airlines to equip aircrafts with Wi-Fi. This is in direct response to the fact that the US is a major player in the airliner connectivity space.
Honeywell’s health and usage monitoring systems which Lockett feels would tremendously help the country’s C-130s especially in regards to Malaysia who could use a system that would update maintenance crews for components and system issues before they become a problem. Preventative maintenance would boost aircraft availability by as much as twenty percent.
Among other upgrades that would aid the ageing transports in the region include terrain collision avoidance and enhanced ground proximity warning systems which would bring them completely up to speed with other modern commercial aircrafts. Per Flight Fleets Analyzer, the Royal Malaysian Air Force operates 14 C-130s which shows an average of 32.8 years in terms of age.
