Honeywell has introduced a new low-cost multifunction display that brings to non-radar-equipped piston aircraft the functionality of the company’s Bendix/King integrated hazard awareness system (IHAS). The KMD 250 measures just three inches high and features a color active-matrix LCD capable of interfacing with a variety of safety avionics. Honeywell cites the availability of datalink weather through the FAA’s Flight Information Service (FIS) project and traffic either through the Traffic Information Service (TIS) program or a traffic-advisory system as among the unit’s key features. The KMD 250 will also allow pilots to switch directly to map, weather or traffic screens by using a joystick controller that lets the user point, scroll and move a cursor around the screen. Slated to make its market debut in the spring, the KMD 250 joins the Bendix/King KMD 550 and 850 line of displays for high-performance general aviation aircraft. List price for the MFD is expected to be less than $5,000.
