FAA approved the Supplemental Type Certification for the Zing 1134 onboard health and usage monitoring system for AW139 helicopters
LAS VEGAS, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HELI-EXPO -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced that its onboard Zing Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) 1134 has received FAA approval for the Supplemental Type Certification (STC) for installation on AW139 helicopters. This STC, developed in partnership with Air Concepts International, will enable current and new production AW139 operators to select Honeywell's Zing HUMS 1134 system at a lower cost.
What is HUMS?
Honeywell's Zing HUMS solutions are sensor-based monitoring systems that continuously monitor aircraft flight data and vibration at numerous points throughout the drivetrain, determine component health and pinpoint anomalies before they become catastrophic failures. Honeywell HUMS solutions provide helicopter operators with actionable information that enables them to anticipate mechanical failures, make anticipatory maintenance decisions and act only when maintenance is actually necessary - on-condition maintenance rather than at predefined intervals. On-condition maintenance allows maintenance personnel to do only the appropriate repairs, minimizing spare parts cost, system downtime and time spent on maintenance.
