GPS Legacy Aviation System (GLAS™ ) Technology

GLAS™ is a highly integrated, simple to install method of enabling legacy pre-WAAS EFIS flight decks to fly GPS approaches with vertical guidance. It has different configurations appropriate for most legacy EFIS flight decks including Pro Line 21 and Primus 1000. Installing IFDs with GLAS technology provides ADS-B position data as well as being the least expensive, quickest and most functional way to add LPV capability to these legacy EFIS aircraft. GLAS tightly integrates either the internal VHF of our IFD550 or the external VHF provided in some configurations using the IFD545 to seamlessly switch the EFIS and autopilot ILS input to GPS with vertical guidance. There are appropriate annunciations and reversion mode considerations in each installation.

FOQA Flight Data Analysis

Avidyne’s IFD Series, ATLAS or HELIOS are the only FMS/GPS navigators on the market that have integrated flight data analysis capability.  The business aviation community can now take advantage of FOQA flight data analysis, or flight data monitoring, to improve pilot performance and safety. This intelligence program allows pilots the opportunity to evaluate their performance, spot trends quickly and easily from their smart device so pilots can take corrective action before a serious incident can occur.
