EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedHoneywell expands AV8OR capabilities
Honeywell announced a software upgrade for its AV8OR portable GPS navigators, which will allow users to display airport diagrams on any member of the company’s product line, plus show scanned VFR sectional charts on the AV8OR ACE electronic flight bag.

In addition to VFR sectional chart capability, the AV8OR ACE has been expanded to include geo-referenced Eurocontrol charts, including IFR and VFR procedures, SIDs/STARs and IFR en route charts.

The VFR sectional charts displayed on the AV8OR ACE and the airport diagrams displayed on the AV8OR handheld are geo-referenced, providing greater situational awareness regarding the position of the aircraft at the airport. On the AV8OR ACE, VFR sectional charts displayed also include flight plan and a user-configured navigation data overlay, similar to charts already available.

“Pilots using the Bendix/King AV8OR are getting a product designed for future expansion; one that just keeps getting better the longer they own it,” said Roger Dykmann, director, general aviation, Honeywell Aerospace.

“VFR sectionals on the ACE will make it as invaluable a tool for VFR pilots as it has been for instrument flight rules (IFR) pilots.”

Both VFR sectional charts and airport diagrams are available via subscription and can be downloaded directly from Honeywell’s partner, Seattle Avionics Software. Annual subscriptions are priced at $79 for VFR sectionals and $49 for airport diagrams. A first-time complete download is $99, while annual subscriptions for VFR approach plates and airport diagrams are $249. Complete VFR and IFR charting costs $799, also through Seattle Avionics Software.

Honeywell and Seattle Avionics Software also say they have released a new IFR chart download manager for the AV8OR ACE, which allows pilots to download only the charts that have been changed since the last cycle, greatly reducing download times.
