Honeywell's Primus Epic in action

| | Comments () | TrackBacks (0) |
Last week, my colleague Lori Ranson and I were invited by Honeywell for an in-flight demonstration of the Primus Epic avionics platform with Synthetic Vision and RNP .1 capabilities that have been installed on the company's Gulfstream G550 (N933H).

The 90 minute flight, which was similar to a G450 flight from a year ago, took us down to Roanoke after we departed Dulles. We flew two approaches to runways 24 and 33 in Roanoke then back to Dulles for a nightime approach on runway 19C.

For a bit of additional background on the Honeywell/Gulfstream system, take a look back the four part series I published a year ago. The Enhanced Vision System II was on full display for this flight and was particularly useful as we spotted a wildfire off the end of the runway in Roanoke.
