Blue Mountain Avionics Enhances EFIS/Lite To Add EHSI and Moving Map

Blue Mountain Avionics has announced the introduction of a significant upgrade to its popular EFIS/Lite Electronic Attitude Display Instrument.

The EFIS/Lite is a self contained electronic ADI that now offers four display modes: electronic Attitude, electronic HSI, moving map and air data page. Malcolm Thomson, General Manager of Blue Mountain Avionics says, "We have been selling the EFIS/Lite now for over a year as an electronic replacement for the six primary flight instruments. Many of our EFIS/One customers purchased the EFIS/Lite as an independent backup unit to provide them with redundant AHRS and dual displays. The addition of the EHSI and moving map capability provides the option to install two EFIS/Lites, one above the other, as an Attitude/EHSI combination." 

The EFIS/Lite Combo uses two identical EFIS/Lites, each operating independently in any of the four available modes.

This provides the pilot with backup instruments for the following: electronic AHRS and Attitude display, air speed, ground speed, true air speed, altimeter, vertical speed, turn and bank, slip indicator, all attitude magnetic compass and HSI, virtual VOR, 12 Channel GPS receiver, moving map and various air data information.



The EFIS/Lite is available for $3500. The upgraded EFIS/Lite with EHSI and Moving Map is priced at $4500 and includes a remotely mounted magnetometer and small keypad. Existing customers can easily upgrade to this new functionality by loading new software and adding a small external keypad.
