Type Approval For Cockpit E-Charts And Weather Information System
Innovative Solutions & Support has announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the Class 3 Electronic Charts and XM Satellite Weather upgrade to the Avio NG integrated cockpit system of the Eclipse Aerospace EA500 Very Light Jet.


This upgrade to the Avio NG cockpit provides pilots with Class 3 forward field of view Jeppesen charts and satellite weather information.

Satellite weather is overlaid on a moving map with multiple graphic viewing options including NexRad, Lightning, Storm Cell, Sigmet, Airmet, TFR, Icing, METARS, and Cloud Tops.

IS&S provides own-ship position overlaid on the Jeppesen charts and maps, including en-route, approach plates, taxi ways and other geo-referenced charts. The system provides nearest charts as the aircraft approaches points along or off the route for ease of selection and quick viewing of nearby airports. The system also provides zooming, panning, and scrolling for ease of readability through high resolution imagery.

“Eclipse operators are now able to upgrade their aircraft with advanced Electronic Chart and Satellite Weather features in the highly integrated Avio NG Avionics suite,” said Roman Ptakowski President of IS&S. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with Eclipse Aerospace and to provide pilots and passengers with this increased functionality to improve safety, situational awareness, and reduce pilot workload.”

IS&S also offers the Class 3 Electronic Charts and Satellite Weather functions in the Cessna Citation, Dassault Falcon 2000, Pilatus PC-12, and all Vantage Cockpit/IP systems. A paperless cockpit can be achieved with the addition of a second chart server.
