Honeywell has selected Air Works as its first authorized service and support center for India.
The company will be Honeywell's regional forward-stocking location partner for major mechanical and avionics parts, Honeywell announced at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition last week in Geneva.
Business jets are growing at a pace of 20% per year in India, and Air Works has been in business for 50 years. Increasingly, clients need local support. As an authorized Honeywell Service Center, Air Works will now have the capability to support Falcon 2000, Falcon 900 and Falcon F7X aircraft, as well as Gulfstream IV, GV, G450 and G550 aircraft.
The agreement enables Honeywell to expand its support capabilities for Gulfstream and Dassault operators in India and the Middle East regions by positioning line-replaceable units intended for aircraft on ground support in Bangalore, India," said Paolo Carmassi, president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, for Honeywell Aerospace.
Honeywell will supply Air Works with major products including fuel pumps, full authority digital electronic controls, display units and modules for integrated avionics systems.
"Our goal is to ship parts within 24 hours of order receipt, and we are driving for a fully stocked operation by June," Carmassi said.
Air Works Engineering is India’s only EASA-approved maintenance, repair and overhaul facility, with approvals for Boeing 737 and ATR42/72 aircraft, and soon for Airbus A320s.
