Honeywell's KFD 840 receives EASA certification for Piper airframes

Honeywell’s Bendix/King KFD 840 primary flight display has received an EASA STC for the Piper PA24 and PA28. “The KFD 840 demonstrates how Honeywell is bringing its business aviation technology into the general aviation market at an unrivalled price-point,” said Rob Wilson, president of business and general aviation at Honeywell Aerospace. “With these latest EASA certifications for the KFD 840, alongside the Bendix/King KSN 770 multifunction display, Honeywell’s general aviation customers can expect yet another step up in performance, usability and safety.”

The KFD 840 incorporates an 8.4in diagonal LCD screen and additional functionality, including a Flight Director capability and a Weight and Balance feature. The unit, which is already certified for the Cessna C172 and C182 aircraft, is based on Honeywell’s business aviation technologies, and is available for less than US$12,000. Replacing many of the analogue primary flight instruments found on general aviation aircraft, the KFD 840 is a self-sufficient unit featuring an embedded Air Data Module and a Micro Electromechanical System (MEMS) Attitude and Heading Reference System (ADAHRS), supplying attitude, heading and air data functions to the pilot. In the event of a loss of electrical power, an optional battery unit will keep power to the ADAHRS. Honeywell says that both the KFD 840 and KSN 770 can be retrofitted into the cockpits of most Part 23 aircraft without the need for costly time-consuming cockpit overhauls.
