Sabena technics and Singapore Component Solutions will provide repair and upgrades for Honeywell’s Air Cycle Machine on ATR 42 and 72 platforms. Honeywell has appointed Sabena technics, a leader in the aerospace maintenance, repair and overhaul sector, and Singapore Component Solutions, a joint venture between Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance and Sabena technics, as Global Channel Partners. The companies will repair and upgrade Honeywell’s Air Cycle Machine on Avion de Transport Regional (ATR) 42 and 72 — twin-engine turboprop, short-haul regional airliners, developed and produced in France and Italy — to its latest standard.

Sabena technics, a French company, is an independent provider of MRO and modification services to civil and military aircraft businesses. The company has more than a century of expertise in the MRO space serving more than 30 airlines and 220 aircraft globally. The appointment of Sabena technics and Singapore Component Solutions as official Global Channel Partners is an expansion of Honeywell’s existing partnership with Sabena technics, which had been primarily licensed for mechanical and avionics component repair.

Honeywell’s Air Cycle Machine is key to air flow in aircraft and improving cabin air temperature, resulting in a better customer experience. Any failures on the Air Cycle Machine can result in significant passenger discomfort due to a warmer cabin and lead to aircraft delays.

Honeywell’s new Air Cycle Machine has an estimated 30% reliability improvement. This will reduce operating costs through fuel efficiencies, avoidance of flight route restrictions and incidental costs from customer dissatisfaction. The system also allows for better air flow in the cabin and cockpit.
