This is great news. How long does it take and what would be involved before one could be fitted to an EASA aircraft?
I may well be missing something but looking at the Installation Manual I see this
so for an aircraft with a mandatory AI (which will be practically everything IFR certified) all you are really getting is a solid state AI. The other features shown in the promos must be disabled.
You can buy a vacuum or electric AI for a lot less from various sources, including US Ebay And that should go straight in, whereas with this one you have a day or two’s work, with wiring and t-plumbing into the pitot/static pipes.
For a backup AI, yes, it looks great.
I understand this differently. For me, it just means you cannot switch it in flight to HSI. But you’ll get the display attitude, slip, IAS, altitude, heading, etc. This picture is the one shown for “Primary attitude” on the website.
To me, it just means you cannot get those screens:
But you can add all extra information that can be displayed on the AI screen on it.
