Versatile Engine Monitoring System Takes On Turbine Tasks
Flightline Electronics introduced the Auracle system some months back... and the engine monitoring game got quite a boost in the process, as the Auracle line worked heard and well to prove itself the most advanced, reliable engine management system available today for single and now twin-engine aircraft. The system offers comprehensive engine and fuel situational awareness, delivered on a stunning full-color glass panel display, with intuitive controls and easily recognizable indicators that mimic familiar analog gauges.
Everything about Auracle was designed to lower pilot workload, improve operational safety, and increase your fuel economy. The anti-reflective coated active-matrix LCD screen is backlit and easily viewable even in full sunlight, and offers a wide angle of view with both manual and automatic dimming features. Auracle is easily read and quickly interpreted, immediately alerting the pilot to any abnormal engine condition and providing the information needed to make critical decisions rapidly.
And now Auracle has set its sights on the turbine powerplant market. In one of their initial efforts to storm the gates of the turbine engine instrumentation arena, Ultra Electronics Flightline Systems teamed up with Soloy to customize their AuRACLE product line specifically for the Eurocopter AS350B2. After considerable research and due diligence, Dave Stauffer Soloy's CEO, determined Flightline Systems had the right combination of turbine experience, a burgeoning glass panel product line, and was the right company to bring this product to market. "Soloy saw a real need to replace and simplify a multitude of old engine instruments we were working with while converting AS350B2's to our LTS-101 Honeywell engine platform. Ultra has a leading position in fixed and rotary wing engine instrumentation and our Soloy team knew the quality of Ultra's engineering and hardware would make them the best fit for our program." Mr. Stauffer also sees greater product support for the operator. "We are replacing several instruments made by multiple companies and combining them into one instrument supported by a single US based company, Soloy."
