 Honeywell and Cessna Sign $800 Million Aviation Equipment Agreement for the
                Citation Latitude and Longitude Aircraft Fleet

Honeywell will provide upgraded environmental control, communications and
navigation systems for Cessna Latitude and Longitude aircraft

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 30, 2012

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced
that the Cessna Aircraft Co. has selected Honeywell to provide the most
advanced environmental control systems, industry-leading LASEREF navigation
and state-of-the-art communications systems for the new Cessna Citation
Latitude and Cessna Citation Longitude aircraft. The new business is expected
to be worth up to $800 million over the life of the program.


Honeywell will provide the Latitude and Longitude aircraft with high-frequency
(HF) radios, LASEREF VI inertial reference navigation systems, digital cabin
pressure control and monitoring system (CPCMS), and the environmental control
systems (ECS) that will help further improve safety, flight navigation and
passenger comfort on these long-range business jets. Honeywell will also
provide its industry-leading RE100 auxiliary power unit (APU) for the
Latitude, which delivers world-class reliability in a smaller size and weight
class than alternative APUs.

Honeywell's Mechanical, Navigation and Communication Equipment

The Latitude and Longitude aircraft will be outfitted with:

  oLASEREF ^ VI, Honeywell's latest generation inertial navigation system,
    designed to simplify pilot workload while dramatically reducing
    installation time, weight, size, power and cost. The LASEREF VI reduces
    operational costs through a 50 percent reduction in box size and over a 30
    percent reduction in both weight and power consumption compared with
    similar systems.
  oHoneywell's Primus HF-1050 radios provide improved frequency strength and
    communication over longer distances compared with current options. The
    Primus HF-1050 is essential for keeping pilots in communication with
    ground crews and air traffic controllers in support of long-range travel
  oHoneywell's digital CPCMS offers more precise cabin pressure control than
    previous systems. The CPCMS controller is an all-electric unit that
    interfaces with the integrated avionics computer to perform fully
    automated cabin pressure control without the need for flight crew
    interaction during normal operation.
  oThe new Citation Latitude and Longitude aircraft also feature Honeywell's
    most advanced midsize environment control system pack — specially designed
    to meet the cabin air-conditioning and pressurization needs of the
    business aircraft marketplace, providing superior cabin comfort in even
    the most demanding environments.

Honeywell and Cessna History

Honeywell and Cessna have successfully worked together for more than 30 years
to provide Cessna business jets with the latest Honeywell technology and
avionics systems. Providing major subsystems to the Latitude and Longitude
further extends that relationship.
