MyGoFlight has solved a vexing problem for iPad users: how to present the information on the iPad’s screen in a way that the pilot can best view that information. The new MyGoFlight Sight Line Display (SLD), introduced at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, is a separate display that can be mounted on a glareshield, while the iPad that feeds the SLD is located on a kneeboard or somewhere where it doesn’t get in the way. This also solves the problem of overheating iPads, which can shut down if kept in direct sunlight or warm areas. The SLD operates from zero to 140 degrees F.

For the PC-12 NG the new wireless data loading system requires installation of an Aspen Avionics CG100P connected gateway device. In aircraft equipped with Epic avionics, hardware upgrades built into the aircraft’s avionics will facilitate wireless data loading, but a common interface for all Honeywell avionics suites will be a database loading application installed on Apple’s iPad.

With Xplore, Arinc Direct offers an Iridium-based Acars and text messaging system.

With the new Xplore system Arinc Direct is jumping into the market for small portable Iridium-powered onboard communications devices that use Apple’s iPad as the control/display unit for cockpit and cabin data services.

Xplore is a small box, two inches thick and no larger than an iPad, that users will carry onto the aircraft, thus no installation of an avionics unit is required. Xplore needs to be attached to power and to an external dual Iridium/GPS antenna to enable communication with Iridium satellites.
