Ibis Aerospace selected the FlightLogic synthetic vision system from Chelton Avionics of Boise, Idaho, for its Ae270 a turboprop single, which is  scheduled for certification by the end of this year. FlightLogic combines HUD symbology with real-time forward-looking 3-D views of terrain and obstacles, and the so-called highway-in-the-sky concept (in which the pilot flies the airplane on the approach through a series of virtual boxes). FlightLogic also complies with the FAA’s terrain awareness and warning system mandate for turbine airplanes.
