Airshow Moving Map Replacement


Moving map displays for the cabin have come a long way since they were introduced and Flight Data Systems has come up with a plug-and-play upgrade for some of the pioneering systems still installed on business aircraft. The new gear fits pin-for-pin into the racks holding Rockwell Airshow 100, 200 and 400 series units but provides the most up-to-date satellite imagery at a cost FDS says may be less than repairing the existing gear.

“There are thousands of old Airshow units flying today that are no longer supported,” said FDS VP Jay Healey. “Flight Display Systems now offers an easy, inexpensive option to modernize those moving maps for the passengers.” Because the gear plugs directly into the old racks, there is no wiring or aircraft downtime for installation.
