Avidyne Corporation, a leading provider of integrated flight deck and safety systems for general aviation aircraft, today announced a new lower-cost FMS400 flight management system and additional Entegra Release 9 Integrated Flight Deck (IFD) system configurations that provide three different price points tailored for increasing levels of capability and redundancy.
“Avidyne’s strategy is to provide a broad portfolio of flight deck options that meet the missions and budgets of our customers,” said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne’s Chief Operating Officer. “The FMS400 configuration allows Cirrus owners that do not require full WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) precision approach capability to enjoy the advanced, yet easy-to-use Entegra Release 9 and FMS functionality.”
“Avidyne strives to provide avionics systems that make flying safer and simpler for all general aviation pilots,” said Dan Schwinn, President and CEO of Avidyne. “We understand that not all pilots use their aircraft the same way, and we are committed to providing the simplicity and safety of Release 9 to meet the needs of each segment of the market.”
