Hints Coming Our Way About "Light Jet FMS'
It's been an
interesting couple of years for Avidyne... but 2008 looks to be a
year of positive and aggressive developments and concrete news
may be coming sooner than you think.
After developing the first electronic cockpit to see true GA
industry acceptance, we hear solid rumors that the company is about
to announce a WAAS-enabled GPS/NAV/COM-capable FMS for single-pilot
Based on the reports we've examined so far, Avidyne may be
planning to give the aviation world their first look at a new VHF
NAV/COM and GPS-based Flight Management System (FMS) during the
upcoming trade show season.
From the limited info
available at this point, Avidyne's FMS system will feature a
WAAS-capable GPS navigator that builds on the ease-of-use that
Avidyne has brought to their Entegra line and will transfer that
type of feature-set to turbine class single-pilot operations. This
system is expected to include the industry's first all-digital,
multi-channel VHF NEXCOM communication and navigation radio -- a
system that has already built up significant "time-in-grade" while
flying 'thousands of hours' in VLJs.
We'll keep you up to date as we get more info but the 'FMI'
below is linked to an Avidyne site that has promised further
developments to folks who sign up for upcoming product
