Honeywell chosen by COMAC to provide integrated wheels, brakes, and Brake Control System for C919 airliner

Honeywell (NYSE:HON) announced today it has been selected by Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC) to provide the wheels and brakes, Brake Control System (BCS), and tires for the new C919 airliner.

"Honeywell's integration of the complete pedal-to-ground solution will ensure a smooth entry into service for COMAC's C919 airliner," said Mark Howes, president of Honeywell Aerospace, Asia Pacific. "Honeywell's carbon brake solution will provide increased operational performance for C919 operators. Honeywell's carbon brakes will reduce aircraft weight, which translates into decreased operating costs from a lower fuel burn and a longer brake life."

Honeywell's 75-year heritage of wheels and brakes development ensures C919 operators will receive long life, up to 2200 landings per overhaul, and high reliability from their wheels and brakes.

"Honeywell is a wheels and brakes leader in China and the Asia Pacific," said Pak Chin, Honeywell's Vice President for Asia Pacific Airlines, Honeywell Aerospace. "We currently supply wheels and brakes for more than 70% of Chinese airlines' existing Boeing 737 fleet. This contract will continue Honeywell's regional leadership on this product."

Honeywell operates 10 facilities throughout China, including Aerospace maintenance and manufacturing facilities in Xiamen, Nanjing, Suzhou, and Shanghai. The Asia Pacific business is based in Shanghai.

Honeywell is collaborating on the COMAC C919 pedal-to-ground solution with Hunan Boyun New Materials Co., Ltd., Changsha Xinhang Wheel & Brake Co., Ltd. A joint venture will be formed to provide the wheels and brakes system for the new C919 airliner.
