Honeywell plans to provide the Zing Test Elite rotor track-and-balance maintenance technology to MD Helicopters to support all current and new MD500 series helicopters. Based on the Zing HUMS 1134 on-board system, Zing Test Elite is a carry-on system that quickly provides the ability to perform helicopter rotor smoothing, engine refining performance checks, component balancing, and vibration surveys to save time, fuel and maintenance costs.

Honeywell expects to complete field evaluation testing of its Zing remote diagnostic service for TFE731 engines by the end of next month. So far, the Zing system has accumulated more than 1,500 flight hours on a Hawker 800 and performed more than 275 downloads of engine data at U.S. and international airports. According to Honeywell, Zing will be available for TFE731-powered Hawkers through dealers and service centers starting in July.

Since launching the Zing engine data-gathering service at last year’s NBAA Convention, Honeywell has been testing the system in a select group of customer airplanes in preparation for its official rollout. Zing eliminates the need for a mechanic to plug a laptop computer into an airplane to download engine operating data. It instead allows wireless transmission of engine information by tapping into the existing GSM/GPRS cellphone network.
