There was much to see at this year's Heli-Expo... including a massive event in which (among other things) Garmin took the wraps off the G5000H - and integrated flight deck is specifically designed for twin turbine, medium lift helicopters.
The G5000H combines widescreen displays with touchscreen controls... the flight deck features high-resolution, wide aspect ratio primary flight displays (PFD) and multi-function displays (MFD). The system supports multiple display sizes and is scalable to support a large number of display and touchscreen controller configurations. The landscape oriented displays have multi-pane capability that allows multiple pages to be viewed side-by-side on any of the displays. Therefore, pilots can simultaneously view their primary flight display, maps, charts, checklists and system synoptics, HTAWS, TCAS, flight planning, weather or video input pages.
The touchscreen helicopter management system gives pilots rapid access to the flight information they want. It also has the ability to control a variety of operations within the cockpit such as flight management system functions, lighting, environmental controls, electrical power distribution and hydraulic systems. It has a menu-driven interface with intuitive icons, audio and visual feedback, and animation so pilots know exactly how the system is responding to their input, and the growth-oriented architecture allows for future technologies to be accommodated via software updates.
