Blogger Jon Ostrower of Flightglobal recently recounted his visit to Honeywell (complete with a photo album) for an in-flight demonstration of the Primus Epic avionics platform which are being installed on the company’s Gulfstream G550. This software based system designed for business and regional aircraft features large liquid crystal flat panel displays that are scalable and thus allow maps and charts to be resized with 2D and 3D graphic capabilities. In addition, the system monitors weather, terrain and other air traffic.
Jon has also published a more detailed four part series (Ground School, To The Sky, Go-Arounds and Wildfires and The Return Home) about the Honeywell/Gulfstream system early last year.
