Hillsboro Aviation now has the Garmin G500H available for helicopters.
Dual 6.5-inch LCD screens, mounted side-by-side in a single bezel, put Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Multi-Function Display (MFD) capabilities right in front of the pilot for easy scanning and interpretation, said officials with the company, which has facilities at Portland-Hillsboro (HIO) and Portland-Troutdale (TTD) airports near Portland, Oregon. The PFD screen shows attitude, airspeed, altitude, climb rate and course/heading information, while the left side MFD provides detailed moving-map graphics depicting the helicopter’s current position in relation to ground features, chart data, navaids and flight plan routings. To help monitor the aircraft’s location on unfamiliar airports, the G500H comes with preloaded geo-referenced SafeTaxi diagrams for more than 900 U.S. airports, as well as a trial version of Garmin FliteCharts, officials add. The G500H also includes Garmin’s HSVT (Helicopter Synthetic Vision Technology) as an option.
