Supernal and Honeywell to Collaborate on AAM Avionics

Hyundai Motor Group’s Supernal has announced an agreement to integrate the Honeywell Anthem, a flight deck produced by Honeywell, into its eVTOL jet. The Honeywell Anthem, which was unveiled last year, is the first cloud-connected cockpit system that can be customized for virtually every type of aircraft, including eVTOLs.

“Supernal is combining automotive’s high-rate manufacturing capabilities and aerospace’s high certification standards to build the foundation for everyday air vehicle transportation,” said Supernal’s Chief Technology Officer, Ben Diachun. “We are pleased to work with aerospace leader Honeywell to mature Advanced Air Mobility avionics systems and certify our eVTOL vehicle to the highest commercial aviation safety standards.”

Supernal, which is displaying its eVTOL vehicle concept at this year’s National Business Aviation Association’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition in Orlando this week, hopes for its eVTOL to begin commercial use in 2028.

“Honeywell Anthem will change the way aircraft are piloted, and we believe that Supernal’s aircraft will be a shining example of how aviation will evolve to be smarter and more sustainable,” said Stéphane Fymat, Vice President and General Manager, Urban Air Mobility and Unmanned Aerial Systems, Honeywell Aerospace. “Honeywell has a wide variety of ready-now solutions to help create a more sustainable future for the aviation sector, and we’re proud to be on this journey with Supernal.”
