Garmin G versus Avidyne Entegra. You’re here because you want to know which glass cockpit is better and/or easier to use: the Garmin G or the. The Entegra Release 9 from Avidyne is a total upgrade of the existing Entegra avionics suite to be found in your aircraft. During the upgrade your old PFD & MFD. Blame the folks who made the nearly inch span of SR22 panel occupied by Avidyne’s certificated, TSO’d Entegra EFIS panel: a primary.

The more you know about glass cockpit technology, the more you’re going to like the technology according to a FSU study. And stacking the Emax engine screen with a navigation map on the MFD allows the pilot to see nearly everything critical at near eyeball level — engine data, heading and air data, and navigation information.

A large attitude indicator is located in the upper center, and wvidyne entire width of the PFD displays a inch long horizon that tilts as the aircraft banks. But, remaining bipartisan, go check out both systems. While grasping this overview might seem like information overload, the accompanying illustration should convince you that the whole presentation is more easily absorbed visually than by any abstract description.

The Garmin G1000 Integrated GPS vs. The Avidyne Entegra

The FlightMax EXC Emax Engine Monitor takes everything you’ve ever seen on a graphic engine monitor and moves it all to a new, bigger, more-colorful level. Speed bugs on the airspeed tape show you Vr, Vx, Vy and best glide speeds, making it easy to remember and maintain a given airspeed.


And that availability will allow me to spread around the blame when the time comes to upgrade our bird into the current century. The HSI along with the bezel keys are all in the lower half of the display, with black being the background color here.

Let’s start with the screen. Once you learn to fly one of these systems, you will NOT want to go back and fly an older aircraft, particularly on longer cross-countries or in IMC.

Well, more are coming, and fast. Toggling between the terrain entegr base map and an IFR navigation map on the MFD was easy and instantaneous, with no lag from waiting on the electronics to redraw the screen.

And there’s more to see on the bottom half of the PFD display. We look forward to hearing from you. Avidyne has demonstrated this with a continuous stream of hardware and software upgrades, [1] including:.

Here’s a summary of certified aircraft and the Glass Cockpits that they offer: And getting the most out of this level of capability really requires more time and practice avidynr during a demo flight.

The nice thing about a G setup is the way everything is integrated within the actual system. The G spreads the engine instruments across three separate screens, except avudyne in the Columbia i and i, which have a full screen engine System page on the MFD.

When a Connie and a DC-8 collided over New York, it fundamentally changed instrument flight rules for the jet age. Use as self-learning guides and quick reference checklists. Entdgra individual IFD can perform the functionality of the other with no unfamiliar or limited reversionary modes due to the fully-redundant architecture of the system. As usual, I digress.

The trend indicators help you see where you’re going to be six seconds downstream, providing a tool to smooth your handling and fly more precisely, while reducing your workload whether changing or maintaining an airspeed or altitude. So the Winner is The cursor avisyne is also context sensitive, providing a clear indication as to whether your current operation is designed to insert a leg to a journey or to modify a waypoint that already exists. And, as we’ll discuss farther down, the EX also serves as xvidyne display for the optional Entegrx Management System.

The two instruments most critical for instrument flight — the attitude and directional gyros — give you somewhat more to see than the standard ATI-size gyro.

FlightMax EX displays route, weather, engine parameters and more. Subscribe to our mailing list today! There, on as crystal-clear a liquid-crystal display as I’ve seen in an aircraft, the two displays cover all the flight instruments, air-data gauges, navigation, attitude and heading information you’re used to seeing.

Rotating either of the knobs presented will move the cursor through the list and a simple push of the rotary knob will select the appropriate airway and prompt for the termination fix. Some G systems e.
