and 1000 Pro PFD; the Evolution 2000 package pairing the 1000 MFD and 1000 Pro PFD; and the Evolution 2500 package, a full triple-header with the Pro 1000 PFD matched up with flanking 500 and 1000 MFD units . Prices start at $4,995 for the 500 MFD or $5,995 for the Pilot PFD . The company also offers special MFD and PFD units designed specifically for the more demanding environment of a helicopter installation . For more information, visit www .aspenavionics .com .
► Avidyne Corp.

A pioneer in glass-cockpit technology, Avidyne’s product line includes two PFDs and two MFDs as retrofit options for owners interested in upgrading . The PFD4000 primary flight display is Avidyne’s new compact system offering, featuring an 8-inch XGA backlit display unit that can mount in the shallowest panels – it’s only 3 .5 inches deep – thanks to a remote unit housing the ADAHRS and pitot-static system hook-ups required for airdata computation . The EXP5000 offers a 10 .4-inch display, with the ADAHRS integrated into the 9 .4-inch-deep cabinet . Features include multiple nav inputs and helpful items such as 6-second trend indicators for airspeed, altitude and heading – something normally found only on larger integrated avionics packages for turbine aircraft . Avidyne also offers the EXP5000 as an MFD without the ADAHRS, or in a smaller-screen MFD package as the EXP500 . Avidyne’s EX600 and EX5000 MFDs also are leaders in the field, offering a full array of weather radar, lightning and traffic overlaid on the main map display, or toggled off for viewing on a dedicated page, if desired . For more information, visit www .avidyne .com . Something new, something old – that’s the status of PFD and MFD products from one of aviation’s oldest, mostrespected avionics names, Bendix/King . On the new front is the innovative KFD 840 PFD, part of the company’s Apex Edge line of products . Sporting a large 8 .4-inch screen, the KFD 840 is sized to fit into the same horizontal and vertical space of the six-pack instruments it’s intended to replace . The integral ADAHRS handles attitude and air-data sensing, while a remote magnetometer keeps DG alignment in line . The screen display uses translucent vertical tapes for altitude, airspeed, vertical speed and the glideslope line which appears only when needed . The 840 pioneered a feature starting to appear more widely – an on-screen, graphic weight-and-balance calcula► Bendix/King by Honeywell

tor custom programmed for the aircraft during installation . Other helpful features include a large-jet-style skid/slip indicator at the top of the DG arc, trend indicators and the ability to interface with a variety of autopilots and navigator systems . Now, for the old part of the glass-cockpit product line: the KMD 550 and KMD 850, two of the true veterans of the fleet . Both provide detailed color base-map functions referenced by the input of an external GPS navigator . They also serve as backbones for the company’s integrated hazard awareness system, displaying information on the same 5-inch screen size using the same AMLCD technology, control architecture and format . They differ only in their input capabilities, with the 850 capable of displaying on-board radar graphics thanks to an integral interface . The interfaces also are available to put traffic, satellite weather and terrain avoidance inputs . For more information, visit www .bendixking .com . Cobham provides the descendants of the innovative EFIS hardware launched under the old Sierra Flight Systems banner, and the PFD and MFD products available today bear the fruit of the early innovations . Sporting a textured 3-D display before synthetic vision systems became plentiful, the Cobham PFD EFIS employs head’s-up symbology also pioneered on the original systems . Complementing the PFD EFIS is Cobham’s MFD EFIS with integral terrain alerting and innovations, such as an engine-out glide rung and trend predictors, which can be combined . The EFIS and MFD packages can be combined in a variety of two, three, four or five-screen configurations, depending on the owner’s needs and budget . For more information, visit www .cobham .com . When it comes to integrating different functions into a single unit, Garmin holds the lead on offerings, starting with its ground-breaking GNS and newer GTN touch series line of GPS/nav/comm units . Garmin offers two unique upgrade solutions, both combining a PFD and MFD into a single dual-screen form, the G600 and G500 . Both provide the convenience of a single-unit panel installation with the advantages of two separate screens and functions . The twin screens sit side-by-side in their respective 10-inch-wide by 6 .7-inch-high packages, each measuring 6 .5 inches diagonally . The units’ shallow 3 .25-inch depth lends well to a host of difficult panel situations . But, it’s the functional depth that pilots find appealing . The G500 is approved for use in class 1 and class 2 aircraft, the
