Genesys Aerosystems’ EFIS Now Certified on Airbus AS350/355

Mineral Wells, TX (November 17, 2020) –– Genesys Aerosystems announced today that the IDU-680 and IDU-450 EFIS displays with 8.0K software have earned Supplemental Type Certification on the Airbus AS350/355 helicopters.

The Level A certified IDU-680 and IDU-450 EFIS utilize 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 aging, 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

·         MIL-STD qualification

·         And much more

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

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. Please contact Genesys Aerosystems for detailed information.
