Honeywell To Provide Avionics For E-jets 2nd Gen

Tue Feb 05, 2013 9:29 pm

Honeywell and Embraer have signed an agreement worth $2.8 billion over its lifetime to provide Honeywell’s Primus Epic as the integrated avionics system for the second generation of Embraer’s E-Jet aircraft family. Primus Epic integrates navigation, communications, and display systems into a compact offering and adds innovative technologies such as synthetic vision and advanced flight management for better situational awareness and more fuel-efficient, direct approaches at airports.
“Honeywell’s Primus Epic is an incredibly innovative, highly integrated and proven technology that makes flying safer and more efficient. Our avionics systems are found inside the world’s most successful aircraft, including Embraer’s existing 170/190 E-Jet family of aircraft,” said John Bolton, President, Air Transport & Regional, Honeywell Aerospace.
“Honeywell has been a valued partner of Embraer for many years, so it is with great confidence that we extend our relationship for this important program,” said Paulo Caesar Silva, President and CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation. “We believe that the evolution of the Honeywell Primus Epic, including large landscape displays, will provide flexibility for continuous innovation in the flight deck, while offering a mature system and a smooth transition for pilots between the current and future generation of E-Jets.”
The Embraer second generation E-Jets program is expected to launch later this year and enter service in 2018. Honeywell and Embraer have a long history of working together on a variety of products and services, dating back 25 years

That explains the ERJ-170 I've been seeing at the Deer Valley airport KDVT in Phoenix for the last few months at the Honeywell hanger. It was E-170 i believe OH-LEL old paint scheme.
