Aspen Avionics recently received FAA Technical Standard Order (TSO) Authorization for its AT300 Hazard Awareness Display.
The AT300 has been certified as a TSO C8d Vertical Speed Indicator and as a TSO C113 Multipurpose Electronic Display. This dual certification allows it to directly replace the legacy mechanical vertical speed indicator that is found in virtually all light aircraft.
The AT300 can be directly installed in a standard 3-inch instrument hole. This allows the AT300 to show valuable situational awareness information in the pilot’s primary instrument scan, and to do so without the expense or installation complexity associated with traditional Electronic Flight Information Systems (EFIS) or Electronic Horizontal Situation Indicators (EHSI). Because installation requires no panel modifications or equipment relocation, the unit can be installed in virtually any aircraft regardless of the available panel space.
The AT300 moving map display shows the pilot current and next navigation leg information overlaid on a high-resolution terrain and obstacle map. Terrain and obstacle data is color-coded based upon its vertical separation from the aircraft’s current altitude (similar to a TAWS display). The AT300 also provides the pilot with a full time display of the aircraft’s height above ground. It also can be configured to display either side profile terrain or a data block showing the active waypoint identifier, desired track, groundspeed, distance to go and estimated time en route.
