Honeywell powers first connected helicopter flight around the world

Honeywell’s advanced connected aircraft satellite communications products and services are connecting a Bell 429 helicopter during Canada’s first helicopter flight around the world. The Canadian father-son team will use Honeywell’s Aspire 200 Wi-Fi system and GoDirect Cabin Connectivity services to share their planned 37-day journey and stay connected from the air everywhere in the world, including over cities, mountains and oceans.

The C150 Global Odyssey team of Bob and Steven Dengler will embark on their trip July 1, 2017, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation. The tour will kick off at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa before making more than 100 stops in 14 countries.
