Home Search Send to Friend Latest Travel News Asia Thursday, 23 October 2014

Honeywell Aerospace has teamed up with Deer Jet, one of the largest business aviation operators in Asia Pacific, to offer in-country access to maintenance service for Honeywells auxiliary power units.

The partnership marks the first line maintenance service center in mainland China for Honeywell since the company entered the business and general aviation market in the country.

The auxiliary power unit system provides primary or backup electrical power for environmental, cockpit and hydraulic systems during flight.

Chinese business aircraft operators will now be able to obtain service promptly in China instead of either calling on an out of country mobile team or traveling out of country to areas like Hong Kong or Singapore.

In addition, the new maintenance service center will be able to provide auxiliary power unit (APU) service to international flights in transit.

Customers of the Honeywell Maintenance Service Plan (MSP), a comprehensive maintenance program, will now be able to enjoy the full benefit of MSP in the region with the new APU line maintenance service center.

Honeywell has a strong reputation in developing and maintaining world-class APUs, said Zhang Peng, president, Deer Jet. The in-country APU line maintenance capability will deliver significant benefits to the business and general aviation market in China and help support China as it rises in the global value chain.

Honeywell APUs are found on many aircraft worldwide and are available in 20 basic models and 339 variants. Since 1952, Honeywell Aerospace has delivered more than 93,500 APUs, used in more than 456 applications.

 In 2009, the Honeywell APU played a critical role in the emergency landing of US Airways Flight 1549 in New Yorks Hudson River, helping to ensure the safety of 155 passengers onboard.
