Honeywell has introduced the next generation of its Cabin Pressure Control and Monitoring System (CPCMS) with applications in both commercial and military aircraft. This new version of the system is all electric, lighter in weight, and available now for business and regional aviation as well as tactical or military trainer-sized aircraft.
The CPCMS helps maintain and monitor the air pressure inside an aircraft. It can be found onboard any aircraft that flies high enough to require air pressurization, including commercial and business jets as well as military aircraft. It regulates the air that is pumped into the cabin of an aircraft to maintain a safe and comfortable environment while flying at high altitudes. It also manages the rate of pressure change to avoid passenger discomfort during climb and descent.
Honeywell has won a contract with Piaggio Aerospace to provide the new CPCMS for its integration into the new P.180 Avanti Evo aircraft configuration, currently under development. The products will start delivery in the third quarter of 2021 and the first planes with the new system are expected to enter service in the first half of 2022.Email Post to a Friend
