Avidyne announced May 19 that it delivered the first Entegra Release 9 to a customer with a Cirrus SR22. The announcement came less than a month after the company earned certification on its advanced, integrated avionics system.
According to an Avidyne representative, the project took less than two weeks from the arrival of the aircraft to customer delivery. “This installation validates the well-thought-out and time-saving benefits of our pre-fabricated, retrofit wiring harness and our highly-detailed retrofit instructions,” said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne’s chief operating officer. Additional installations are ongoing throughout the country, according to the company.
Release 9 is Avidyne’s most ambitious program in years. Besides the system’s standard, two-screen, primary flight display and multifunction display, it features a flight management system, two of Avidyne’s integrated GPS units, new radios, and Avidyne’s datalink. Retail price of the upgrade is $72,800 for the Cirrus SR20 and SR22.
