The FAA has granted STC approval for installing Chelton FlightLogic synthetic vision EFIS systems in the Bell 204/205.
The systems feature the Chelton primary flight display with forward-looking synthetic vision, a multifunction moving map display, GPS WAAS, full FMS, helicopter TAWS, air data computer with fuel totalizer, solid-state strap-down AHRS, master caution voice warning system, digital flight recorder, and NVG compatibility.
Already approved for the Bell 206, 206L, 407, and the Eurocopter AS350/355, Chelton has introduced two unique capabilities to the helicopter market: HITS and hover vector. HITS (highway-in-the-sky) navigation provides precise 3-D GPS guidance for en route and instrument procedures as well as search grids and precision helipad approaches. The hover vector, designed to eliminate whiteout/brownout accidents, provides the pilot with a real-time drift vector that allows zero-zero takeoff and landing.
