Entegra FMS900W Is Designed To Reduce Single-Pilot IFR
Avidyne recently strutted its stuff before the Aero-TV crews
with a demo of their upcoming FMS900W FMS system.
In the works for some time, the new Entegra FMS900W WAAS-enabled
GPS/NAV/COM Flight Management System (FMS) is designed to reduce
workload for single-pilot IFR operations. The FMS900W provides a
fully-redundant, state-of-the art VHF and TSO C146b Gamma
3-compliant turbine-class FMS capability for all GA aircraft.
Utilizing a fully-modular architecture, the FMS900W Flight
Management System is an enhancement to Avidyne's Entegra Integrated
Flight Deck platform and is designed specifically to take advantage
of Entegra's large-format displays and Byteflight peer-to-peer
FMS900W system components include single or dual remote-mount
LRUs, each with Avidyne's GPS723 WAAS/RNP GPS Sensor and a DVX740
VHF NAV/COM module and optional ACD215 Control/Display Units.
Avidyne's GPS723 sensor is a fully compliant RTCA DO-229D, Gamma 3
navigation system, and is designed to meet Required Navigation
Avidyne tells ANN that it is nearing completion of the product
design phase and will soon be entering into the certification phase
of the Entegra FMS900W program.

About Aero-TV: It's DEFINITELY Show
OK, folks, here we go... we are NOW initiating the first
feature programming series for Aero-TV... we're going to take it
slow, but we're also going to try and be steady about this. DO
UNDERSTAND that this is the most complex media program we've ever
undertaken and what you're seeing is just the tip of the iceberg...
but from here on out, we will be doing our best to educate,
inform, and entertain YOU about all aspects of the exciting worlds
of aviation and aerospace.
If you've been an observer of the media and associated media
industries over the last few years, it's not hard to mistake the
fact that a massive revolution is taking place. Old sources for
news and information are falling by the wayside, having to change
their modus operandi or risk obsolescence (or extinction).
Electronic media and print media are both under the assault of
progress, and the online world has been a cornerstone for
We've been ready to go for a while, but to be honest, there's so
much more to this program than we've alluded to, and so we've been
building and planning a massive new organization within ANN. That
said, we're hiring talented new people as
fast as we can find them (a far more difficult
task than we had imagined -- REALLY good people are hard to find),
and we're brainstorming at speeds that would make a deorbiting
Space Shuttle feel like a slug. Suffice it to say that we wanted to
do this right, rather than right-now, and that the development of
this program has been the most carefully pursued undertaking we've
E-I-C Note: The
complete feature shown above is embedded in this
story, with most of the slick and useful functionality
otherwise available on the main Aero-TV site (which will be
upgraded aggressively over the next few weeks). The ability to
embed a video on another web page is but one of the hundreds
of amazing little features that we've worked hard on, for many
months now, to implement in different phases of the initial
release of Aero-TV. It is, BY NO MEANS, the only way to enjoy
unaltered Aero-TV programming on other parts of the web... as we
have extensive plans for future functionality, but this
feature allows those with an interest in a specific Aero-TV News or
Feature program to embed it on a different web site, though we
must note that we reserve the right to forbid such use for those
sites or purposes that we do not feel fit in with the proper
mission of the Aero-News Network, Inc.
Webmasters or Administrators of well-trafficked aviation or
aerospace related sites, are welcome to contact the Publisher to
start conversations on how they may be able to leverage some of the
immense power of Aero-TV programming for their sites and
constituency by clicking the I Want Aero-TV For
