Universal Avionics introduces one of its flagship features of the new avionics package in the redesigned Next Generation MD Explorer, a cursor control for the advanced display system as an integrated part of the collective. This “point and click” philosophy brings advanced technology into the flight deck of the redesigned Explorer, which is set to be the first helicopter in the light-twin market to feature such a system.
The “point and click” display control for the Next Generation MD Explorer flight deck is designed to use a Cursor Slew Switch mounted on the primary flight controls. This control enables the pilot to easily change frequently used EFIS selections while maintaining positive control of the aircraft.
