Earlier this year, Heart Aerospace announced its collaboration with a US-based aerospace and defence systems supplier. It was for the Electrical Power Distribution System for the ES-30, the Swedish firm’s first all-electric regional aircraft. Today, it has confirmed another such collaboration. Heart Aerospace has decided to partner with Honeywell to integrate the latter’s fly-by-wire Flight Control System (FCS) into the abovementioned aircraft.
The said FCS is in an advanced stage of development on multiple aircraft. That said, its functions are adaptable to the ES-30 plane. This strategy will help Heart Aerospace complete the development process cost-effectively and introduce the aeroplane to the market more quickly.
The aeroplane maker already has 250 firm orders for the ES-30, with options and purchase rights for an additional 120 aircraft.
