All IFDs are equipped with Avidyne’s beautiful 3D Synthetic Vision (SVS) for improved situational awareness. SVS is fully integrated and requires no additional boxes or wires.
All IFD systems offer Terrain Awareness capability which can be displayed over the color-contoured terrain base map for easy pilot recognition of an imminent encounter with nearby terrain.
For an even greater measure of safety, Forward Looking Terrain Alerting (FLTA) actively projects the aircraft’s flight track in time to determine whether a collision with terrain or obstacles is imminent. Caution Alerts are provided when a collision with terrain is projected within approximately 60 seconds, and Warning Alerts are provided for terrain projected within approximately 30 seconds.
The IFD uses standard high, low, and grouping symbology with clearly depicted obstacles using color-coded threat levels based on threat levels on the SVS display. 3D Traffic uses standard traffic symbology with traffic depictions indicating relative threat level by their size and relative altitude and bearing. As traffic draws nearer to you, the traffic symbols grow in size on the IFD screen.
Airfields are depicted with a METAR-style flag when in field of view. With valid METAR data from your datalink, airfield flags will be color-coded to represent the ceiling and visibility, consistent with the moving map presentation.
