AMETEK to supply fuel gauging system on HondaJet business aircraft

The Sensors and Fluid Management Systems Group (SFMS) of AMETEK Aerospace & Defense has been selected by Honda Aircraft Company, Inc., to supply the fuel gauging system on the new HondaJet business aircraft.  The system is made up of 15 level sensing probes, a refuel display panel, a signal conditioning unit and four in-tank wiring harnesses.

HondaJet is an advanced light jet offering class-leading performance, fuel efficiency, interior cabin space and cargo capacity achieved through numerous innovative technological advances in aviation design.  Honda's first-ever commercial aircraft, the first deliveries are scheduled in the United States in late 2010.

"We are extremely pleased to be working with HondaJet in supplying this advanced fuel gauging system,"comments Deidre E. Cusack, Vice President, Measurement and Power Systems for AMETEK Aerospace & Defense. "AMETEK's fuel gauging systems make use of state-of-the-art technology and materials to provide the lowest weight and safest systems for the business jet marketplace."

"As a leader in fuel systems and components for over three decades, AMETEK provides the necessary integration experience as well as superior component design history to realize the lowest program risk for HondaJet," adds Ms. Cusack.
