ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sky Connect Tracker III is the
first system that enables simultaneous worldwide automated tracking, text
messaging and voice capabilities to improve crew and passenger safety and
increase aircraft availability. The all-in-one voice, text and tracking system
from Honeywell Aerospace (NYSE: HON)  has received FAA Supplemental Type
Certificates for the Sikorsky S-76, AgustaWestland AW139 and Airbus AS350
rotorcraft platforms.


"Sky Connect Tracker maintains voice, text and tracking communications for
thousands of aircraft operated worldwide and is now expanding its services for
three key helicopter platforms," said Paul West, sales director at Honeywell
Aerospace. "Sky Connect Tracker III provides helicopter operators with the
crucial information to keep their fleet safe and efficient. Our dual redundant
servers currently handle more than 5 million tracking, text and telemetry
messages each month, and we expect this number to grow as more customers
realize that Sky Connect Tracker III is the best solution for Iridium-based
asset tracking and connectivity needs."

Using the Iridium satellite network, Sky Connect Tracker III allows for
real-time communication in situations such as:

  oAlerting ground personnel and crew if an aircraft deviates from a planned
    flight path
  oProviding alerts if an aircraft enters a restricted area
  oReal-time notification of maintenance needs to ensure that the correct
    maintenance personnel are on hand to perform checks upon landing
  oMaximizing efficiency of flight operations by tracking the location of the
    entire fleet at any time
  oClose monitoring of when, where and how an aircraft is flown for aircraft
    leasing operations
