New Safety Feature Allows Display Of Attitude On Sandel's
SN3500 and SN4500 Primary Navigation Displays
Sandel Avionics has received FAA approval for its SN3500 and
SN4500 Primary Navigation Displays with Reversionary Attitude Mode.
This new safety feature enables the display of integrated attitude
and navigation information on the SN3500/SN4500 in event of failure
of the primary attitude indicator.
"This is a significant safety enhancement for aircraft and
helicopters," said Jerry Henry, Sandel's Director of Sales. "Pilots
now have added capability in the cockpit in the event of failure of
a primary attitude indicator."
FAA Part 25 approval for the Reversionary Attitude Mode was
granted following a successful flight test in Sandel's Citation
S/II test aircraft. The feature is controlled by the pilot through
a remote switch. When activated, aircraft attitude is shown
immediately on the Sandel Primary Navigation Display in an
integrated format. Navigation information is overlaid and includes
heading and lateral and vertical guidance for enroute or precision
approaches, including GPS WAAS procedures. For situational
awareness, the pilot retains the ability to momentarily show moving
map, traffic and weather data if desired. The Reversionary Attitude
Mode feature is available now for the 4" SN4500 and the 3" SN3500
Sandel is exhibiting in booth 2842 at Heli-Expo 2009.
