AvMap Ultra EFIS worldwide preview at EAA Airventure 2013

AvMap, the Italian manufacturer of GPS since 1994, presents the Ultra EFIS, a stand alone unit providing Air data, Attitude, Heading and Altitude Reference for your flight.

The AvMap Ultra EFIS is a stand alone device with a 3.5” ultra bright, Sunlight Readable LCD display. The unit is compact (only 1.95” / 49.5 mm installing depth) and ultra light: only 5.1 oz / 145 g while other products on the market are around 1 lb 9 oz / 700 g.

Fitting in a standard 84 mm (3.3”) panel hole, the AvMap Ultra EFIS can be easily installed in your panel and be connected to the GPS receiver (included) and to the aircraft Pitot-static system to provide reliable and advanced ADAHRS.

Designed for light-sport, ultra light and experimental aircrafts, the AvMap Ultra EFIS contains solid-state gyros, accelerometers, magnetic field sensors, air data sensors and UAV Navigation motion processor, the outcome of more than 8 years of motion and flight control experience at UAV navigation (uavnavigation.com)

Mr. Parodi, CEO at UAV Navigation, commented: "ULTRA is now the most compact, reliable and complete Primary Flight Display of its type in the world. We are delighted to continue to work with AvMap to produce such leading edge aviation products. We're looking forward to putting it through its paces at the Worldwide Air Race Championships."

AvMap products range is extending beyond navigation to include more and more avionic tools with the objective to provide a complete AvMap Glass Cockpit system. To this purpose we are selecting the best partners in the market to work with, such as UAV Navigation.” added Simone Lazzarini, CEO at AvMap.

AvMap Ultra EFIS is the second product developed in collaboration with UAV Navigation, after the A2 ADAHRS module launched this April.aEURuAvMap gives you now the possibility to choose your EFIS solution: stand alone or integrated with EKP V. According to your cockpit space availability and your navigation needs, you can choose two displays or one unique device. The Ultra EFIS is the stand alone solution for panel mounting; otherwise, if you already own an EKP V, you may consider buying the A2 ADAHRS module to be used together with the Cockpit Docking station to complete the AvMap EFIS set. The A2 ADAHRS module in facts extends the functionalities of the EKP V Aeronautical Navigator bringing attitude and airspeed to the moving map and converting it into a centralized Glass Cockpit System for both navigation and primary flight display.

Retail Prices: The Ultra EFIS will be on sale starting this Fall at $1200, while the complete AvMap EFIS set (EKP V + Cockpit Docking Station + A2 ADAHRS) retails at $ 2750 http://www.avmap.us/avionics/instruments/UltraEFIS
