Honeywell Aerospace selected by Pilatus for PC-24 cockpit avionics
Honeywell has been selected by Pilatus Aircraft to supply the avionics suite for the newly announced Pilatus PC-24 Twin Jet. A combination of components from Primus Epic and Primus Apex will provide the core functionality, safety and display content for the Pilatus Advanced Cockpit Environment (ACE), designed specifically for the PC-24. Primus Apex is proved on several platforms including the Pilatus PC-12 NG. Drawing on functionality from Honeywell’s Primus Epic flight deck, which is available for larger cabin business and regional aircraft, Primus Apex for the PC-12 NG and Pilatus ACE for the PC-24 ensure the consistency of design philosophy and operational practices throughout the Pilatus business aircraft line. Pilots will have access to safety features and operational functionality previously reserved for the most sophisticated global business jets.
