November 8, 2017: Honeywell has intoduced consigned inventory management for its maintenance protection program, the Honeywell Avionics Protection Plan (HAPP). This feature lets Business and General Aviation aircraft operators store the avionics they need at the repair facilities to ensure that parts are more readily available. The upgrade is available for any customer using the HAPP or HAPP Gold programs.
Consigned inventory management cut down aircraft turnaround time compared with present programs, taking up to 75 percent less time to replace a failed aircraft part. The protection plan is specially designed to maintain high aircraft availability, helping operators save money in unnecessary costs from grounded aircraft.
HAPP offers operators with the flexibility to choose repair parts with either Honeywell-recommended products or their preferred products. The selection of cost-effective products lets large fleet owners increase aircraft readiness and flyable conditions by utilising Honeywell’s access to a global community of more than 600 repair facilities to support operators’ needs. Honeywell avionics are backed by the company’s Spares Exchange Program, which provides line-replaceable unit exchanges and rentals for both warranty and nonwarranty situations.
