IMC Clubs: Building Instrument Proficiency Through Community
When it comes to flying, there is no substitute for proficiency and training. And maybe nowhere is that more important than instrument flying.

Bendix introduced their new integrated flight deck which brings together several safety enhancing displays enabling flight crews to better maintain their situational awareness. The system includes three 12" displays delivering 2 PFD's with synthetic vision, and one multifunction display with INAV.
The history of the Bendix name runs parallel to the development of King Radio until the mid-1980s, when the Allied Corporation purchased Bendix Aviation and King Radio and combined the two to create the now-renowned Bendix/King brand of avionics.

The name was further modified to AlliedSignal in 1993 to reinforce a one-company image and signify the full integration of its business.
