Heart Aerospace and Honeywell are collaborating to integrate Honeywell’s next-generation flight control system into Heart Aerospace’s ES-30 regional electric aircraft.

Following the successful Joint Definition Phase of the ES-30, Honeywell’s compact Fly-by-Wire system will be integrated into development for production.

“We are thrilled to welcome Honeywell to the ES-30 programme,” said Anders Forslund, co-founder and CEO of Heart Aerospace. “With its long track record in flight controls, they are an ideal collaboration partner for Heart Aerospace as we strive to decarbonise air travel before the end of this decade.”

“Honeywell’s flight controls provide the ideal solution for Heart’s mission to revitalise and electrify the regional transport market,” said Vipul Gupta, President of Electronic Solutions, Honeywell Aerospace. “Honeywell’s all-electric compact Fly-by-Wire is a ready-now solution based on decades of flight control experience in all aircraft types, and that reduces development time and risk for Heart.”
