VirtualHUD has introduced the portable battery-powered Wingman EFIS (Electronic Flight Information System) that’s capable of interfacing with a GPS to display HITS (Highway in the Sky) in standard symbology. It can also integrate with the VirtualHUD, to project a “heads up display” picture in your line of sight, according to company officials, who note your attitude, position, and groundspeed can be right in front of you, all the time.
Plan your flight in your GPS; hook it to your Wingman, and experience integrated navigation and attitude information. (The attitude information and HITS display are courtesy of the Wingman and its integrated positioning and motion sensors). When used alone, the Wingman is an EFIS, giving Experimental aircraft more panel space, and offering pilots of LSA and Certified aircraft an independent redundancy for critical instrumentation.
The Wingman will be available at AirVenture Oshkosh 2010, to ship right after the show. Pricing is $1,595, with an early-order discount of $100. For more information:812-539-2846 or VirtualHUD.com
