Emergency AD Issued For Avidyne IFDs

Emergency AD Issued For Avidyne IFDs

The FAA this week issued an Emergency Airworthiness Directive for Avidyne Integrated Flight Display units due to cases of incorrect course indications during RNAV approaches where the final fix is not aligned with the final approach course. The AD (PDF) affects some software versions of 10- and 12-inch R9 displays and the IFD540. It requires adding to the Limitations Section of the airplane flight manual or flight manual supplement to state: “Flying a full procedure (non Vector-to-Final) GPS approach, with a course change at the Final Approach Fix (FAF), is prohibited," and “Flying a GPS approach, with a Direct-To or with an Omni-Bearing Selector (OBS) leg to the FAF, is prohibited.” FULL STORY
