Brings Avidyne MFD Capability To Rotary Wing Market
Vista Aviation of Pacoima, California, has completed the first
helicopter installation of the Avidyne EX600 Multi-Function Display
(MFD), Avidyne said Monday. The installation was completed in a
Eurocopter A-Star 350B and approved under a FAA Form 337.
"We have installed quite a few Avidyne MFDs, and we were excited
about being the first dealer to install an EX600 into a
helicopter," said Bill DeBarmore, Vista Aviation's avionics
manager. "The customer wanted the EX600 specifically because of its
easy user interface and one-touch panning capability which reduces
pilot workload. The installation went very smoothly, and the
customer was delighted with how it turned out."
"Vista has done a terrific job on this first EX600 helicopter
installation, the first of many for Avidyne MFDs in this market,"
said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne's Chief Operating Officer. "The EX600
provides significant advantages for the helicopter operator
including its overall ease of use and a very versatile radar and
safety-sensor interface compatibility."
This installation also included an Avidyne TAS610 Traffic
Advisory System, a TWX670 Color Tactical Lightning, and an MLX770
Two-Way Datalink Transceiver.
