Chelton Flight Systems, Boise, Idaho, received European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification for its Electronic Flight Instrument System for use on Bell 206A, B, L-series, and 407 light single helicopters. Chelton’s synthetic vision system uses 3-D graphics to translate the terrain ahead and around the helicopter into a real-time picture. The system also includes Highway-In-The-Sky capability, which allows pilots to fly with ILS precision to any point in the world, and Helicopter TAWS, which delivers visual and audio clues when terrain or obstacles present a hazard. Chelton’s newest software package, version 6.0B, will be installed on the system.
