Advancing avionics for the rotorcraft market, Universal Avionics introduces the EFI-890H Flat Panel Display for helicopters. With software based on Universalâ€™s popular fixed-wing Flat Panel Display system, the EFI-890R, and hardware proven and approved to withstand high-vibration environments, the EFI-890H is suited for the unique requirements of helicopter operators. Universal Avionicsâ€™ EFI-890H offers flexibility for installation in single or multiple display architectures.
â€œAs a long time supplier of Flight Management Systems (FMS) to the rotorcraft market, we became aware of a significant need for avionics qualified for IFR operations in both Part 27 and Part 29 airframes,â€ said Dan Reida, Universal Avionicsâ€™ Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Support. â€œOur EFI-890H is the cornerstone of our suite to address this need,â€ he added.
