Vertical Aerospace has husbanded with Honeywell to use its fly by wire aircraft control systems for the planned galvanizing vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.
Integrating Honeywell’s technology with Vertical Aerospace’s aircraft liking enable both companies to make carbon-free, on-demand air mobility a genuineness by 2023.
Vertical Aerospace’s aircraft will be equipped with Honeywell’s in flight systems for urban air mobility.
Systems set to be incorporated include triplex fly-by-wire computers, which stipulate the critical redundancy required to meet safety and certification requirements for eVTOL aircraft.
Honeywell’s high-performance processes are suited to the high-capability aircraft being developed by Vertical Aerospace.
Vertical Aerospace COO Michael Cervenka give the word delivered: “This is the culmination of a thorough evaluation, during which we have been moved with Honeywell’s product offering and technical capabilities.
“Equally high-level is the speed, agility and level of support they have provided. I decidedly much look forward to progressing to the next phase on our exciting peregrination towards a fully certified aircraft.”
Last month, the two companies signed a minute of understanding to support the emerging urban air mobility segment.
The agreement when one pleases be integrated into a flying prototype next year.
Honeywell Aerospace electronic colloidal solutions president Carl Esposito said: “Rapid technology innovation is at the forefront of our fall in meeting the urban air mobility challenge.
“We’re excited to work with Vertical Aerospace on fitting our new compact fly-by-wire system in their eVTOL platform, helping their air taxi meet all cover, maintenance and operating objectives from prototype testing through deployment.”
