WMU Release 9-Equipped Aircraft To Be Updgated To Latest Software

Synthetic Vision, ADAHRS Capability To Be Added To Training Fleet

A partnership between Western Michigan University (WMU), Avidyne, and Brown Aviation Lease has been extended with the addition of Avidyne’s Synthetic Vision and dual Air Data/Attitude-Heading Reference System (ADAHRS) capability to WMU’s fleet of Cirrus SR20 aircraft.

Through Brown’s Operating Lease Solution, WMU’s fleet of 26 Cirrus aircraft will be upgraded with System Software R9.3 and a second ADAHRS.  Each aircraft was previously equipped with Avidyne’s Entegra Release 9, comprising dual high-resolution IFD5000 Integrated Flight Displays, a single ADAHRS. WAAS-capable FMS900w Flight Management Systems (FMS), 16-watt all-digital VHF radios, and MLB700 SIRIUS/XM for broadcast datalink weather.
 
“We previously chose Avidyne’s Release 9 system because of its fantastic flight management system capabilities that are especially valuable for training tomorrow’s corporate and air transport pilots,” said Captain David Powell, Dean of the WMU’s College of Aviation. “The addition of the R9.3 Synthetic Vision upgrade and the second ADAHRS strengthen our training program by providing students with state-of-the-art display capability, and dual-sensor failure mode training.”

“We are delighted to continue our relationship with WMU and their premier pilot training program,” said Dan Schwinn, Avidyne’s President and CEO. “This upgrade allows WMU to train the next generation of professional pilots to a new level of proficiency.”

“Extending our partnership with WMU and Avidyne for this upgrade is a great example of how we are providing top-tier universities, flight schools and fleet operators with continued access to state-of-the-art aircraft and avionics systems. For WMU, we were able to improve the overall performance, safety and utility of their fleet while lowering their monthly lease costs,” said Jason Griswold, Managing Director of Brown Aviation Lease.
