Honeywell Aerospace Signs 5-Year Contract with French Navy

Honeywell Aerospace has signed a five-year contract to support the French Navys fleet of Dassault Falcon Guardian surveillance airplanes based in Tahiti.

Under the agreement, Honeywell will provide parts, repair and overhaul services and engineering support for the fleets Honeywell ATF3 turbofan engines.

Honeywell will work with Sabena Technics, the primary maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider, to meet the French Navys requirements.

The two companies have a long history of supporting the Falcon Guardian platform. MRO services on the engine will be provided by Honeywell at its Sky Harbor facility in Phoenix, Arizona, enabling the French Navy to maintain the capabilities of its Falcon Guardian fleet by keeping the legacy engine operational.

Introduced in the early 1980s, the Falcon Guardian is a twin-engine version of the Falcon 20, specially adapted for maritime missions including surveillance and search and rescue.

In addition to the Honeywell ATF3 engine, the airplane is also equipped with Honeywells Inertial Reference Unit, control box and Navigation Display Unit.
