Mid-Continent Instruments (Booth No. 2656) is showing the AX1 attitude heading and reference system manufactured by Axitude, an avionics design and manufacturing company based in Naples, Italy. As the exclusive U.S. distributor, Mid-Continent said the AX1 allows aircraft owners to select the primary flight display that meets their individual preferences or requirements, while the unit provides critical attitude and navigational output. It provides primary and/or redundant attitude heading reference to glass-panel retrofit installations and uses enhanced performance Kalman Filter algorithms, high-stability micro technology, integrity monitoring and performance unaffected by high vibration environments. The AX1 is European technical standard order-certified and bilateral FAA TSO approval is pending.
