Vision SF50 Update: the cockpit

It’s here. A bold new era of avionics for your bold new Vision Jet! Announcing Cirrus Perspective Touch by Garmin, an advanced integrated touchscreen system that sets the new standard in performance, personalization, safety and ease of use for operators.Unique to Perspective Touch are three 5.8” touchscreen controllers, each positioned in landscape orientation under the 14” PFD and MFD glass screens. Each of the three controllers can be rotated between PFD, MFD and NAV/COM dedication with a soft-key command. This offers the pilot broad angle views and sunlight-readable high resolution (1280 x 768) LCD color displays, plus 100 % infrared touchscreen technology that eliminates input errors by calculating the entry and exit points of the user’s finger–even with gloves on. The PFD and MFD displays also have split-screen capabilities. This allows the ability to access aircraft system synoptics, engine/fuel analysis, landing gear, electrical power, environmental properties, ice protection and more literally at your fingertips.The icon-based user interface on the touchscreen controllers gives pilots the same familiarity they have with their smartphones and tablet devices, including the popular full QWERTY layout for data entry. Additional features include weight and balance entry–a place to safely account for passengers, fuel and bags along with a center of gravity calculation, digital pressurization monitoring and checklist usage. One additional piece we think you’ll really enjoy about this integrated touchscreen approach is the elimination of soft key buttons. It creates a clean, contemporary appearance, replacing the cumbersome switchboard of knobs and dials that often over-clutters cockpits.For more information go to: http://cirrusaircraft.com/perspective-touch-features/
