Rosen’s FlightView In Production

 - October 9, 2006, 8:50 AM

After much market research and considerable research and development, Rosen Aviation Displays’ FliteView moving map passenger information system will go into production in August. The Eugene, Ore.-based company describes FliteView as fitting a niche between the low- and high-end products but at about one-fourth the price of the high-end.

According to v-p of sales and marketing Andy Beers, the box is “extremely small,” about 8 inches by 8 inches by 5 inches, and weighs just four pounds. And he noted that it works well with Rosen’s new seven-inch widescreen personal plug-in display monitor.

Rosen has also begun deliveries of the new Slimline LCD 6.5-inch multi-standard, plug-in display, which replaces the older 5.6-inch display. Best of all, the viewing area has in essence doubled, the resolution is doubled, video input capability has tripled, and it is “completely backward compatible with the 5.6-inch display it replaces.” Including the plug-in arm, the Slimline is priced at about $3,000.
