Robinson adds Avidyne IFD to options
December 20, 2018 By Helicopters Staff
Robinson Helicopter added Avidyne’s IFD 400 series touchscreen GPS navigators to its R22, R44 and R66 avionics options.
Featuring a 4.8-inch display, the 400 series may be operated by either touchscreen or buttons and knobs. Robinson explains this allows the IFD to be installed in the helicopter’s lower centre console or in the pilot side console. Wi-Fi, for interfacing with an iPad, and Synthetic Vision are standard.
When used in conjunction with Avidyne’s IFD100 app, Robinson explains an iPad may mirror the IFD display or may serve as an independent display capable of controlling the IFD. The IFD100 app is free and available on the Apple App Store.
