Chelton Flight Systems reports it has begun field installation of its synthetic-vision glass-cockpit software capable of integrating and displaying Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) information. The company is installing the version 6.0B software in southeastern Alaska under the FAA’s Capstone Phase 2 Program. Working with the FAA and the University of Alaska Anchorage, it also will provide training on the new software to operators of nearly 90 Part 23 aircraft through the end of this month. The update for Chelton’s electronic flight instrumentation system received FAA approval in December, according to the company, and is DO-178B Level-A certified. For related news
