Hilton Software now supports the XRX PCAS Traffic System from Zaon Flight Systems. WingX Pro7 connects wirelessly to the portable XRX traffic system to provide real-time display of traffic threats on its moving map.
WingX Pro7 also introduced its new field-tested traffic symbology. These new color-coded symbols improve the visual ergonomics and reduce interpretation time and errors, company officials said. WingX Pro7 is compatible with both new and existing Zaon XRX systems. A small wireless dongle costing less than $100 is required for connectivity, company officials add.
“Our WingX Pro7 design philosophy is safety-driven. WingX Pro7 was the first and is currently the only iPad to seamlessly integrate a number of safety features including Synthetic Vision, AHRS-driven attitude, dynamic terrain overlays, and in-flight weather. The addition of in-flight traffic together with our new traffic symbology increases traffic awareness and therefore flight safety,” said Dr. Goldstein, CEO of Hilton Software.
Kevin Van Drunen, Vice President of Zaon Flight Systems, says “We’re excited to be working with Hilton Software to increase pilot and passenger safety. WingX Pro7 users will now be able to see the surrounding air traffic depicted on top of the moving map on their iPad application that they’re already using for navigation, increasing their situational awareness.”
WingX Pro7 is available for download from the App Store and iTunes. WingX Pro7 is iOS 3, iOS 4, iPad, and iPad 2 compatible. Synthetic Vision requires iOS 4. Zaon traffic support is planned to be released sometime this month.
