The modern airliner is, in technical terms, a million miles away from Sperry's 1914 Curtiss C-2. Aviation is now safer than it's ever been before. Thanks to technology, you can travel anywhere in the world in less than a day and work, rest or play while on the move. Honeywell Aerospace has been at the forefront of this innovation since 1914, be it through weather radar from Bendix, traffic collision avoidance systems from Bendix and Sperry, mechanical systems from Garrett, engines from Lycoming, or Honeywell flight management systems. The industry still has several challenges such as congestion, fuel prices and emissions to overcome. However, when you consider the progress we have made since Sperry's first demonstration of the autopilot 100 years ago, it is inevitable that over the next century technology will continue to play a central role in advancing air travel around the world and beyond. Here at Honeywell we look forward to playing our part in this evolution. The best is yet to come!
