Honda selects EMTEQ's SkyPro™ for Cabin Management on the HondaJet

SkyPro, the Advanced Connectivity and Productivity Solution, is the Cabin Management System (CMS) and In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) System to be installed on the HondaJet, Honda Aircraft Company's industry-leading advanced light jet. SkyPro is an innovative system offering full cabin control, SkyShow (SkyPro's HD moving map), AVOD (Audio and Video On Demand), and more – technology and system configuration above and beyond today's standard cabin management and in-flight entertainment systems.

"The EMTEQ SkyPro system is the only solution that fully meets our needs for flexibility, scalability & customization, while also providing comprehensive capabilities and state-of-the-art performance. We look forward to developing this exciting functionality for the HondaJet and to continuing to expand and build on our successful relationship with EMTEQ," said Honda Aircraft Company President & CEO, Michimasa Fujino.

More than a standard CMS/IFE system, SkyPro is a proven all-digital, high-definition (HD) system scalable for any aircraft. SkyPro features specific to the HondaJet include HD touchscreen monitors, Audio/Video on Demand (AVOD), interactive 3-D HD moving map, exterior camera with real-time viewing capability, and cabin control.

HD Touchscreen Monitors and AVOD

The HondaJet SkyPro package includes HD, ultra low-profile touchscreen monitors mounted and deployable at each seat. The system features highly innovative touchscreen controls including capacitive touch switches and an intuitive menu for enhanced usability. Passengers are able to independently access any audio, video and information they wish, with the option to sync with another passenger to simultaneously view content through SkyPro's advanced passenger sync system. AVOD is available through the removable media storage unit, capable of storing virtually your entire media collection. With multiple media inputs available, passengers are able to interface with audio, video or gaming systems brought onto the aircraft through SkyPro to play through the speakers and HD monitors. HondaJet will also be offering an XM Satellite Radio option, where SkyPro will interface with XM allowing passengers to select their desired station presets at their own seat.

SkyShow Interactive 3-D HD Moving Map

SkyShow, the fully interactive 3-D HD moving map system for SkyPro, allows passengers to individually view and navigate the world through their monitor. With pan and zoom capability and a 360 degree world view, passengers can view 3-D landscapes down to the street level. Also available for passengers to view is flight path and status information, which is overlaid on the HD moving map.

Cabin Control

Passengers are given control over their cabin environment through the touchscreen at their seat. This includes full control of lights within the cabin. EMTEQ, a leading interior lighting supplier, will also be providing the full suite of interior lights to accent the HondaJet's unique styling.
