Avidyne’s IFD550 is a state-of-the-art, hybrid touch-screen Flight Management System with Synthetic Vision, designed for virtually any aircraft or helicopter.
Avidyne is renown in aviation circles for our innovative products and it’s no secret that safety and ease of use are true hallmarks of all Avidyne products. With the new top-of-the line IFD550, Avidyne combines our latest in touchscreen, WAAS/SBAS GPS/VHF navigation and communication along with stunning 3D synthetic vision technology to deliver the most powerful and capable touch-screen, panel-mounted navigator ever made.
The IFD550 has all the great features of Avidyne’s IFD540 along with integrated Synthetic Vision: Requiring no additional boxes or wiring, the IFD550 displays a three-dimensional scene representing “egocentric” (out-the-window) and “exocentric” (in trail) views of your aircraft in relation to nearby terrain and traffic.
3D Terrain & FLTA - Terrain Awareness (SVS-TA) is provided via hashed coloration of terrain. Textual and aural alerts are provided for terrain hazards. Forward Looking Terrain Alerting (FLTA) provides an extra measure of safety by displaying a solid yellow or red impact point based on projected flight path in the event that a collision with terrain is projected. FLTA also provides visual CAS messaging & aural alerting.
Airport Flags - 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.
