Concepts for Future General Aviation Avionics 971500
Technological advances provide the means to implement designs to give the pilots improved and safer control of an aircraft throughout the whole flight regime from gate to gate. These advances also give the passengers access to everything they need to have a flying office and for en route entertainment all at feasible costs. These same advances in technology present many complex design, certification and operational issues that must be addressed to effectively use the information that is available for aircraft systems, flight crew and passenger use. This paper describes some of the issues involved and some of the avionics advances that can be expected.
