Hainan Airlines focuses on safety
It will equip fleet with sensors developed by Collins Aerospace
The Chinese Hainan Airlines will equip its fleet of aircraft with Total Air Temperatures (Air Data Sensors) and Pitot 0851MC sensors developed for differential pressure monitoring by the US company Collins Aerospace, a subsidiary of Raytheon Technologies specializing in technological solutions for the aerospace and defense industry.
These instruments will be installed on the A-320 and A-330 aircraft, as well as on the B-737NG. These technologies are critical to ensuring aircraft performance by measuring a range of important data, including airspeed, altitude and other computer calculations. These sensors will achieve greater reliability, cost savings and improved aircraft efficiency.
In particular, the pitot 0851MC sensor will prevent ice crystals from forming on the aircraft, improving safety. A system developed according to the current standards set by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (Easa).
