PHOENIX: Honeywell launched a new Future Air Navigation System (FANS) testing capability as part of its GoDirect Datalink services.
The new built-in tool will give operators using GoDirect Datalink the ability to test the system on their aircraft after installation, thus verifying that the system is installed and correctly working.
This helps operators and pilots know that they have access to efficient satellite communication and navigation before takeoff.
Once operators schedule testing through Honeywell’s GoDirect Flight Service, they can use the new capability to verify Future Air Navigation System (FANS) installation and service on their aircraft after maintenance, while receiving troubleshooting support, a preflight FANS check before takeoff and inflight testing.
The system also provides a final, additional verification by giving pilots a report showing results and required communication performance before they fly. All of this lets pilots know they have the right technology working onboard their aircraft to comply with industry regulations before starting the engines.
