Certification For Mirage, Meridian Expected Next Year
The first Piper PA-46 Matrix equipped with Avidyne's Entegra
Release 9 integrated flight deck has been delivered by the avionics
company. Avidyne said in a news release Monday that this was the
first PA-46 aircraft to get the R9 upgrade, which includes dual
IFD5000 integrated flight displays and dual FMS900w WAAS-capable
flight management systems (FMS).
"The Matrix is a terrific cabin-class aircraft and the Entegra
Release 9 suite adds significant capability," said customer Mark
Mathys of Ohio. "Having already flown for over 20 hours with
the system, R9 has given me more confidence knowing that I am
flying the safest, most modern glass cockpit on the market."
"We are pleased to have completed the first Matrix with Entegra
Release 9 for Mr. Mathys, adding to the growing fleet of satisfied
R9 customers," said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne's Chief Operating
Officer. "Combining our innovative dual-databus system
architecture, highly-capable dual WAAS FMS systems, and an
intuitive user interface, our customers are finding that Release 9
reduces pilot workload and allows them to fly more confidently in
the IFR system."
The Entegra Release 9 retrofit for Piper PA-46 Matrix aircraft
includes two XGA high-resolution IFD5000 displays, dual-redundant
FMS900w systems with FMS keyboard, next-generation fully-digital
16-watt VHF NAV/COM radios and dual WAAS/RNP-capable GPS
The Matrix upgrade carries a list price of $72,800, plus
installation. Certification of the system for the Mirage and the
Meridian is expected in 2011.
