FAA has approved Honeywell’s Zing health and usage monitoring system (HUMS) 1134 for supplemental type certificate (STC) installation on the AgustaWestland AW139.

The Zing HUMS solution is a sensor-based monitoring system that continuously tracks aircraft flight data while determining component health. Honeywell developed the STC in partnership with Air Concepts International, and will allow current and new production AW139 operators to purchase the Zing HUMS 1134 system at a lower cost. The advanced HUMS functionality of the system meets CAA, CAP753 and CAP739 requirements, according to Honeywell.

“We believe that the Zing HUMS 1134 onboard system will be an excellent option for all AW139 operators, particularly those supporting the oil and gas industry and VIP and corporate operations,” said Brian Sill, vice president of defense and space Americas aftermarket at Honeywell.
