Honeywell and Heart Aerospace agree to collaborate on flight controls for ES-30 electric aeroplane

The new collaboration will help usher in a more sustainable future of aviation.

Electric aeroplane maker Heart Aerospace and Honeywell, a leader in aerospace technology, have announced a collaboration to integrate Honeywell's next-generation flight control system into the new ES-30 regional electric aeropAeropuertoeywell was selected by Heart Aerospace for the Joint Definition Phase of Heart's ES-30 aeroplane the goal, once the phase has been completed successfully, is to fully integrate Honeywell's compact Fly-by-Wire system into development for production.

"We are thrilled to welcome Honeywell to the ES-30 program. With its long track record in flight controls, they are an ideal collaboration partner for Heart Aerospace as we strive to decarbonize air travel before the end of this decade," said Anders Forslund, co-founder and CEO of Heart Aerospace.

Honeywell's next-generation compact Fly-by-Wire system is in an advanced stage of development on multiple aircraft, and its functions are adaptable to the ES-30, allowing Heart to bring its aeroplane to market quickly and cost-effectively.

"Honeywell's flight controls provide the ideal solution for Heart's mission to revitalize and electrify the regional transport market," said Vipul Gupta, President, Electronic Solutions, Honeywell Aerospace. "Honeywell's all-electric compact Fly-by-Wire is a ready-now solution based on decades of flight control experience in all aircraft types, and that reduces development time and risk for Heart."

The ES-30 is a regional electric aeroplane with a 30-passenger standard seating capacity and is driven by electric motors powered by batteries. It will have a fully electric zero-emissions range of 200 kilometres, an extended hybrid range of 400 kilometres with 30 passengers, and the flexibility to fly up to 800 kilometres with 25 passengers, all with typical airline reserves.

Heart Aerospace has 250 firm orders for the ES-30, with options and purchase rights for an additional 120 planes.

Honeywell partners with Fokker.....

Honeywell and Fokker Services B.V. (Fokker) have signed a memorandum of agreement whereby Fokker has been authorized as a Service Center & Channel Partner for Honeywell pre-cooler control valve (PCCV) repair and overhaul services. The agreement, announced at Paris Air Show 2023, will provide airline operators with a wider choice of component repair services.

The PCCV is already used on the Boeing 737NG. Through its Amsterdam centre, Fokker will offer full disassembly, assembly, test, repair and overhaul services to customers across the globe. This collaboration serves as an expansion of the existing repair authorization for Honeywell avionics and mechanical components, enabling Honeywell and Fokker to venture into new product lines together.

"By collaborating with Fokker, we are expanding operators' choices for their component repair needs. Honeywell is proud to partner with Fokker to not only strengthen our existing repair authorization but also open new avenues to explore together," said Maria Sanchez, Senior Sales Director, Airlines Aftermarket, Honeywell Aerospace. "With Fokker's expertise and its Amsterdam facility offering a comprehensive range of services, airline operators can now benefit from a broader range of options, ensuring the highest standards of quality and efficiency in component repair services."

"We are pleased to enhance our partnership with Honeywell as the chosen partner for B737NG PCCV aftermarket support. Our unique value chain, customized product portfolio and customer-centric approach enable us to provide added value to airlines and engine shops in their pneumatic accessories' maintenance," said Menzo van der Beek, CEO of Fokker Services Group. "As our collaboration with Honeywell grows, we will continue to explore new opportunities and expand our service offerings to further benefit the channel partner network."

ITEC and Aerialis joint together to bring F124 engine to new Aeralis fleet

Honeywell, through The International Turbine Engine Company (ITEC), has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) at Paris Air Show 2023 with aircraft designer and manufacturer AERALIS to integrate the Honeywell/ITEC F124 Engine into AERALIS' new modular aircraft.

AERALIS' fleet of aircraft comprise a common core fuselage that will be fully adaptable, using different wings and engines depending on the mission. This modular design means it can be reconfigured to take on a variety of roles, including training pilots with little or no flight experience, operational training, display, surveillance and light combat. It is expected that the acquisition and maintenance of the jets as a collective system will cost 60% less than a conventional light jet system thanks to the modular design, affording an 85% commonality in aircraft parts.

"The fifth and sixth generation of fighter jets requires a new approach to training and operational support roles that AERALIS is looking to deliver through its innovative approach to aircraft system design," said John Guasto, vice president of Defense and Space International at Honeywell Aerospace. "Honeywell/ITEC is pleased to be able to offer the F124 engine solution as part of AERALIS' system approach, delivering the reliability, thrust and affordability that other competitive offerings simply cannot match."

DENSO, Honeywell Co-Develop E-Motor for Lilium’s All-Electric Jet

DENSO Corporation, a leading mobility supplier, and Honeywell, an aerospace leader, are co-developing an electric motor (e-motor) for the Lilium Jet. This is the first product developed by Honeywell and DENSO since formalizing their alliance, and it marks DENSO’s entry into the aerospace market. The two companies will work with Lilium, developer of the first all-electric vertical take-off and landing (“eVTOL”) jet, to integrate the e-motor into Lilium’s aircraft engines.

Electric aircraft are not only quiet and comfortable, but are also more sustainable as they do not emit CO2. As mobility becomes increasingly diversified, air mobility offers potential solutions to prominent transportation issues, such as traffic congestion in urban centers, CO2 emissions and transportation access in less populated areas.

Established in 2015, Lilium is creating a sustainable and accessible mode of high-speed, regional transportation for people and goods. Lilium has designed, built and tested technology demonstrators and invited the world to watch as they pioneer the next phase of flight. .

The e-motor for the Lilium Jet consists of a rotor and stator, weighing approximately 4 kg and having an output of 100 kW. The rotor and stator are uniquely designed to meet the small size and low weight necessary to achieve Lilium’s performance goals. This proprietary, high-performance system, on which the Lilium, Honeywell and DENSO teams have already been working for nearly two years, brings exceptional performance and reliability with zero operating emissions typically associated with commercial jet engines.

DENSO and Honeywell began joint research in 2019 and signed an alliance agreement in early 2021 to design, develop, produce and sell electric propulsion system products for electric and hybrid-electric aircraft.

Stรฉphane Fymat, vice president and general manager of Urban Air Mobility, Honeywell Aerospace said: “Honeywell has been at the forefront of innovation in aviation for a century, and we are proud to closely collaborate with DENSO and help usher in the age of electric flight. Lilium’s innovation, combined with our experience in aerospace, will help to bring about cleaner, more sustainable ways for people to travel for centuries to come.”
