Synthetic Vision For Pilots

by diane 2010-04-15 20:07

“Synthetic vision is one of the most useful, safety enhancing features that we offer and it makes a world of difference in how you aviate,” said Gary Kelley, Garmin’s vice president of marketing regarding the future consumption of synthetic vision in the G300 and G3X, the avionic platforms for Cessna’s Skycatcher and other experimental and light sport aircraft (LSA). “G300 and G3X pilots will appreciate the added situational awareness in 3D as they fly.”
With SVX on the G300 or G3X, the primary flight display (PFD) illustrates a clear 3D depiction of terrain, obstacles, runway designations, airport sign-posts and more – all shown in relative proximity to the aircraft. In addition, aircraft that are equipped with a Garmin GTX 330 transponder or other compatible traffic receiver will display traffic alerts that use standard traffic symbology represented in 3D.
The G300 and G3X’s synthetic vision, SVX, is specifically for experimental and light sport aircraft. SVX will be included with newly purchased G300 and G3X systems, and will be available for download for those who are already flying with the avionics.
The G300 is a glass cockpit exclusively for the Cessna 162 Skycatcher. The Skycatcher is a two-place, single-engine piston, high-wing aircraft in the LSA category. The G300 presents information as a split-screen PFD and MFD, or as two full-screen displays with an optional second screen.
The G3X, like the G300, is a customizable PFD and MFD combination and features one, two or three all-glass displays; magnetometer; ADAHRS (combined air data and AHRS unit) and engine monitoring.
Garmin anticipates the availability of SVX during Sun ‘n Fun 2010, April 13-18, 2010.
