AEA 2023: Avidyne’s Replacement Avionics


At the Aircraft Electronics Association’s International Convention and Trade Show in Florida, Avidyne was showing its dealer network several replacement options for aging avionics. This includes the IFD series slide-in navigators for existing Garmin GNS 430 and 530 systems, plus the Vantage flight displays, which replace vintage Entegra PFD and MFD systems. Aviation Consumer Editor-in-Chief Larry Anglisano caught up with Avidyne’s Tom Harper for an update on the product lines.

  1. They have been talking about these products for 2-3 years now…
    It is painful they target Cirrus first in circumstances that it is plenty of Cessnas and Columbias out there spring loaded for them, let alone the negative interest of this company in getting the digital autopilots certified for Cessnas and Columbias.
    Get real guys and take better care of your old clients outside of the Cirrus cloud.
