Next month, Honeywell plans to release the Forge Pilot Connect mobile app, which is designed to improve fuel savings, provide enhanced situational awareness, and increase crew interaction throughout a flight. Pilot Connect integrates with Honeywell Forge Flight Efficiency to offer improved insights and recommendations for flight cost-effectiveness and reduction of carbon emissions.

Honeywell’s Forge end-to-end flight management platform is designed to provide operators with a holistic approach to managing a flight integrating functions from connectivity to flight operations, navigation databases, and maintenance.

“The existing mobile app, formerly known as GoDirect Fuel Efficiency, allows flight efficiency managers to export dashboards from the data analytics portal to a mobile device. While this approach provides flexibility and customization, there is now an increasing need for the data insights to be presented in a more interactive manner that is aligned with the practical and immediate needs of the pilots,” said Honeywell Aerospace president of services and connectivity Philippe Chevrier. “Additionally, our fully customizable Honeywell Forge Pilot Connect mobile app will not only include all of the features and functionalities of the existing app but will also incorporate several new advanced enhancements to improve pilot engagement.”
