Ovation Select Nearing Certification

 - November 5, 2010, 11:25 AM

Ovation Select, the cabin-­management system from Honeywell, is nearing ­certification and the new cabin mockup, with production hardware and everything from HD monitors to iPad docks to surround-sound audio, was on display
at the NBAA Convention last month.

The Ethernet-based system is scalable for aircraft from midsize to widebody jets and is designed as a forward-fit item for new ­aircraft as well as a retrofit package for ­refurbishment projects.

Honeywell has also assembled a worldwide support and service network
for Ovation Select.

Certification of the system is ­expected ­before the end of this year or the ­beginning of next. The company also recently ­introduced its JetMap HD. Unlike the JetMap III software upgrade introduced last year, JetMap HD is a hardware upgrade and is not backwards compatible with JetMap II or JetMap III.
