Honeywell to provide flight deck technologies for Vertical Aerospace demonstrator vehicle

Honeywell and Vertical Aerospace have signed a letter of intent naming Honeywell as the supplier for flight deck technologies for its demonstrator aircraft program.

The demonstrator program will help Vertical Aerospace understand flight characteristics, system requirements and the flight deck user interface to further the development of its urban air mobility (UAM) vehicle. The agreement deepens the collaboration between the two companies following the signing of contracts in 2019 to equip Vertical demonstration aircraft with the Honeywell Compact Fly-By-Wire System and flight control software.

The new agreement includes several other technologies present in the front end of the aircraft. These include multi-touch displays, avionics system controls, avionics software and the vehicle operating system.
