Avidyne has received FAA approval for the Release 9.1 software upgrade to the Entegra Release 9 Integrated Flight Deck (R9) avionics system. It has received Technical Standard Order (TSO) approval and was awarded a supplemental type certificate (STC), which provides authorization for installation of the upgrade into the existing fleet of R9-equipped aircraft. Release 9.1 provides several product improvements and also some new features such as FMS Procedure Preview, FMS Map Center View, and also includes the required software for the enhanced vision capability (EVS). EVS will be available later this year pending appropriate STC approvals for interface with EVS hardware. FMS Procedure Preview allows pilots to see a graphical presentation on the split-screen map as they scroll through the list of available departures, airways, transitions, and approach procedures in the R9 flight management system (FMS). FMS Centered View is a fourth map view which centers the map on any selected waypoint in the flight plan. This feature enables pilots to scroll through the flight plan and view the entire route of flight at a single range setting on the map, to get a better idea of the weather along the route. Entegra Release 9.1 software is field-loadable by Avidyne-authorized distributors and is being made available to all current Entegra Release 9 owners at no charge. Nominal installation charges may apply. For more information call (800) 284-3963 or visit www.avidyne.com.
