Honeywell announces its latest acquisition of TruTrak Flight Systems, a company pioneering in autopilots for experimental, light-sport and certified aircraft.
The acquisition will become part of the company’s BendixKing business, helping to deliver affordable technologies to the experimental and general aviation markets.
Carl Esposito, president, Electronic Systems at Honeywell Aerospace, commented “It provides great technology at affordable prices, which is central to BendixKing’s business. Furthermore, adding TruTrak to the BendixKing family will attract new talent, foster collaboration and help us identify new ways to bring value to our customers.”
Under the agreement of the two companies, TruTrak’s chief executive officer and owner, Andrew Barker, will join the BendixKing executive team and will continue to drive the successful adoption of TruTrak’s autopilots in the experimental and certified aircraft markets. BendixKing will also add TruTrak’s engineers to its staff to maintain the integrity of the technology and the affordability for which TruTrak’s products are known.
TruTrak has sold well over 15,000 autopilots and continues to introduce new products and features to improve autopilot technology, improve safety features, and add new capabilities. TruTrak’s autopilot systems can fly a wide range of aircraft and fly well in turbulence. They are also easy to install, maintain and use.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed as of now.
