Eagle installs Australia's first Garmin G500H TXi for Helipower

Eagle Australasia, together with Queensland based operator, Helipower, have brought the Garmin G500H TXi touchscreen flight display to Australia. Readers may recall Helipower's Bell 206L3 underwent a full interior and exterior refurbishment by the Eagle team late last year, including an upgrade to Garmin's G500H flight display. For helicopters already equipped with the original G500H series flight displays, full G500H TXi compatibility with existing system sensors makes for an easy, cost-effective upgrade path which was too good for Helipower to ignore.

The first of its kind to be installed in this country, the G500H TXi is equipped with a five-colour HTAWS, WireAware wire strike avoidance technology and Garmin HSVT 3-D synthetic vision. it also features multiple video input options, NVG compatibility and a graphical map overlay with HSI for most display formats.

Designed for helicopter-specific mission readiness, the G500H TXi provides full touchscreen continuity between the navigation, communication and flight display functions in a panel. The system's familiar user interface and best-in-class graphical display capabilities provide pilots with access to high value flight information at a glance. The clean-sheet touchscreen supports improved map and chart rendering, faster panning and contemporary single finger zoom and pinch-to-zoom gestures. Modernised displays and large fonts offer improved readability whilst the intuitive user-interface helps reduce overall pilot workload.
