Avidyne Avionics Training

Avidyne Entegra

The Avidyne Entegra integrated flight deck features large-format, 10.4” flat panel liquid-crystal displays which replaces virtually all traditional instruments or “steam gauges” in the cockpit. Over 3,500 Cirrus aircraft are equipped with Avidyne PFDs. The typical Avidyne equipped cockpit consists of a PFD and MFD with two Garmin GNS 430 (NAV/COM/GPS) units. With experience in both Avidyne and Garmin avionics, we can provide quality training in both systems to help you gain maximum proficiency in your aircraft.

Avidyne Entegra Release 9

Release 9 is now available as an upgrade to Entegra-equipped Cirrus aircraft. Offering a truly redundant system, the new Avidyne Entegra Release 9 prevents single point failures from spreading to other parts of the system. The simple “page and tab” format allows easy navigation to important information. Information is presented on two fully-interchangeable IFD5000 Integrated Flight Displays with XGA (1024×768) glass.

The all-new Entegra FMS900w Flight Management System (FMS) allows for quick and intuitive creation and modification of flight plans. Basic functions are accessible through the bezel controls or through the optional ACD215 Control/Display Unit. “GeoFill” helps predict the next leg or waypoint of your flight based on proximity to your current position or previous waypoint in your flight plan. This results in a 75% reduction in keystrokes to enter a flight plan. The “FMS Vectors” feature allows for enhanced calculations for wind-corrected roll steering commands to the autopilot resulting in smoother, safer navigation.

The DVX740 is a 100% digital software aviation radio, capable of supporting NEXCOM next generation datalink protocols. The all-digital software controlled design allows 4 COM/Datalink channels and 4 NAV (VOR, LOC/GS) channels in each radio to operate simultaneously.

The Entegra Release 9 provides support for future software releases including Synthetic Vision (SVS), Enhanced Vision (EVS), and Highway in the Sky (HITS).
