Avidyne is setting its sights on the lower echelon of the turbine business airplane market as part of a strategy by the Massachusetts avionics manufacturer to broaden the audience for its new Entegra R9 glass cockpit, introduced in the Cirrus SR22 and SR20 piston singles in April last year.
Garmin is encroaching on rival Avidyne’s turf with the announcement last month that the G1000 avionics system will be offered as optional equipment in the Piper Saratoga II TC and 6X.
A fast response to AOG alarms is a challenge to which Matrix Aviation (Booth No. 1312) has become accustomed in support of corporate, regional and helicopter operators and maintenance facilities worldwide. From its headquarters in Wichita, Kansas, and supported by an international office in Southend, England, Matrix aims to meet urgent avionics, instrumentation and radar needs wherever they may be.
