PS Engineering has introduced flightmate, an audio storage/recall system, included in the new PMA8000G.
The flightmate system allows the pilot to record alert messages that can be triggered by some event or switch in the aircraft, like a stall warning or autopilot disconnect.
These four logic inputs trigger specific messages pre-recorded by the pilot.
In addition, there is 2-½ minutes of recording time to store brief checklists or other information, which can be played back at the push of a button labeled “PLAY.”
Also new to the PMA8000G is a USB charging port, capable of 10 watts to power and charge all your personal electronic devices.
Additionally, IntelliAudio is now represented by the HRTF button. Head Related Transfer Function, or HRTF, is PS Engineering’s patented Spatial Audio system. When HRTF is activated, the crew will hear COM 1 at a 10 o’clock position, and COM 2 appears at the 2 o’clock position. This spatial audio feature helps the brain process audio sources, adding comprehension and easy listening to multiple radios, company officials explained.
The PMA8000G can be equipped with the optional PS Streamer Bluetooth module for streaming cockpit audio to a device such as a compatible video camera.
List price of the PMA8000G is $2,295.
