A new generation of innovators is looking for ways to quickly and efficiently move people within cities in a safe and environmentally friendly manner. Soon passengers and goods will routinely fly aboard a new breed of cleaner, smarter air vehicles.
The age of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) is upon us, and Honeywell is on the leading edge.
We’re applying our technologies in autonomous flight, avionics, hybrid-electric and electric propulsion, detect-and-avoid, actuation, logistics and connectivity to the unique needs of Urban Air Mobility vehicles.
We’re investing in new capabilities and scaling proven systems to meet UAM size, weight, power and cost requirements.
Our full-time UAM team is working with aircraft manufacturers, governments, universities, and newcomers from the tech and transportation worlds to advance the science of flight.
Our huge portfolio of aerospace products means we can get your vehicle flying fast.
And with 100 years of aircraft certification experience, we help you navigate the regulations as well.
We’re constantly looking for new partners, so tell us what we can do for you. Let us help you take to the skies.
No one knows more about autonomous flight, fly-by-wire, avionics, navigation, situational awareness or connectivity than Honeywell. You’ll find our electronics on aircraft from Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, Bombardier, Dassault, Gulfstream, Pilatus, Textron and many other manufacturers.
We pioneered collision avoidance and ground proximity warning technologies that dramatically improve flight safety. Now we’re applying our expertise to detect-and-avoid technologies that will be critical for UAM operations.

We’ve built more small gas turbine engines than anyone – more than 160,000 in the 600-1,700 shaft horsepower range – and have been working in electric and hybrid-electric propulsion for more than two decades.
We excel in generators, motors, controllers and other essential elements in the electric and hybrid-electric powertrain. And we just introduced the aerospace industry’s first 1 MW generator (above), with the same power density as our 200 kVA generator.

Data communications are key to safe and efficient UAM flight. Honeywell is known throughout the industry for systems that bring Internet and other datalinks to airliners, business jets and helicopters.
But our expertise goes beyond that: we also provide advanced analytics, connected weather, connected flight management and prescriptive maintenance to improve the flying experience for passengers and operators.
We’re now working on applications specific to urban air mobility.
The aircraft certification process can be intimidating.
With Honeywell as a development partner, UAM
builders can breathe easier thanks to our
certification experience with new applications,
products and aircraft programs. We also lead
the transportation industry in enabling aircraft
systems to work together.
Let’s talk about your mission needs
Our Urban Air Mobility team works full-time to ensure our customers are getting the solutions they need – fast.
With a century of experience on our resume and a culture that thrives on growth and innovation, we’re looking for more opportunities to apply our leading-edge technologies on new UAM platforms.
The age of urban air mobility is here. Honeywell is ready.
