Genesys says AS350 operators will be tempted by EFIS
The large-format, 10.4 in or 26.4 cm IDU-680 and smaller form, 6.4 in or 16.25 cm screen diagonal, IDU-450 can integrate with radios such as the Genesys digital radio, traffic systems and datalink weather.
Both EFIS models come standard with 3D Synthetic Vision, Highway-In-The-Sky (HITS) navigation, Geo-referenced Hover Vector, Helicopter TAWS (HTAWS), Graphical Flight Management System (FMS), NVIS compatibility and MIL-STD qualification.

Genesys Aerosystems' IDU-680 and IDU-450 electronic flight instrument system (EFIS) displays with 8.0K software have earned STC on the Airbus AS350/355 helicopters.

The Level A certified IDU-680 and IDU-450 EFIS utilise ADAHRS, and GPS SBAS data for precision aircraft operations, including RNP and LPV approaches. The large-format, 10.4 in or 26.4 cm screen diagonal, IDU-680 and smaller form, 6.4 in or 16.25 cm screen diagonal, IDU-450 can also integrate with select radios such as the Genesys digital radio (GDR), traffic systems and datalink weather. Both displays replace ageing, and often failure-prone gyros, allowing operators to increase mission capabilities, dispatch rates and usefulness of the aircraft. Additionally, both EFIS models come standard with 3D Synthetic Vision, Highway-In-The-Sky (HITS) navigation, Geo-referenced Hover Vector, Helicopter TAWS (HTAWS), Graphical Flight Management System (FMS), NVIS compatibility and MIL-STD qualification.

“The AS350 and AS355 are highly utilised, and operators depend on them to be ready when they need them. This avionics upgrade not only adds the capabilities of a modern EFIS but removes mechanical gyros, the weak link in the panel,” says Jamie Luster, director of sales and marketing with Genesys.

The IDU-680 and IDU-450 STC and installation kit for the Airbus AS350/355 is available and shipping now. Pricing is available for upgrading from the IDU-III as well as new installations.
