Boom Supersonic information details the specifics of the Honeywell Anthem agreement: The flight deck will be tailored to Overture's specific mission requirements, with the aim of enabling exceptional situational awareness and enhanced operator safety.
The advanced avionics interface provides continuity to Overture pilots from initial simulator-based flight training through to actual flights. Honeywell successfully completed the first flight of its Anthem integrated flight deck in May 2023, using its Pilatus PC-12 test aircraft, a prelude to gaining certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Such a specialized aircraft could be used by militaries to deliver medical supplies, provide for emergency medical evacuation, patrol vast areas faster than conventional aircraft, and coordinate other aircraft and ground assets in a variety of scenarios.
