Avidyne’s fully integrated “Release 9” Entegra avionics system will be available as a retrofit on Piper PA-46 Meridian, Mirage, and Matrix aircraft.
“Entegra Release 9 is ideally suited as a next-generation flight deck upgrade to meet the mission profiles of the high-performance Piper PA-46 aircraft,” said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne COO. “These aircraft are single-pilot IFR workhorses, and Release 9’s easy-to-use FMS and its fully redundant system architecture dramatically reduce pilot workload and increase safety.”
The Entegra Release 9 retrofit for PA-46s includes a three-box display.
The company said it would set prices for the upgrade following FAA certification in 2010.
