Honeywell Aerospace has been working on the clean-sheet design Anthem integrated avionics suite, flying over 100 flight test hours in hopes of eventual FAA certification. It was showing the system at AirVenture 2022 at Oshkosh and Aviation Consumer Editor Larry Anglisano sat down with Honeywell’s Andrew Barker for an update on the project.
I have only flown steam Guage aircraft. After experiencing the android auto glitches in my new Cadillac, and having to use my cellphone as a backup, I am not entirely sold on all this automation. At least I still know how to use a paper map. This is what scares me most about everything going electronic these days. I won’t fly without a backup option, and always bring a old school paper chart with me. Hope other pilots will as well…..
If you ask 100 pilots, less than 15 still fly with paper. There are no more reasons to fly with paper maps. With phones, tablets and avionic stacks, paper is long gone from the cockpit, other then notes/weather, etc.
