Honeywell, Pipistrel team for urban air mobility

30th January 2019 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Honeywell and Pipistrel have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to explore and develop aircraft technologies for the future urban air mobility market, Honeywell announced on 24 January.

The companies will integrate Honeywell avionics, navigation, flight control systems, connectivity and other products and services onto a future Pipistrel VTOL air vehicle to support fully autonomous operations in the future.

Urban air mobility refers to on-demand and automated passenger or cargo-carrying air transportation services, typically flown without a pilot.

For the project, Honeywell will leverage its experience in integrated avionics, flight control systems, systems integration, certification and manufacturing; while Pipistrel will utilise its capabilities in the design and development of advanced light aircraft to support the initial phases of a demonstration programme in early 2019. A schedule announcing flight demonstrations for the vehicle prototypes will be confirmed later in the year.
