BendixKing Demos New Hardware at AirVenture 2018
July 25, 2018 - BendixKing demonstrated some of the company’s new avionics hardware at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 on Tuesday in the BendixKing Pavilion, Booth 292, including a panel geared for experimental aircraft.
The xVue Touch display has a 10.1-inch screen that BendixKing says has higher quality than anything else on the market. It works both as a touchscreen and with the knobs that come with the panel. The current display price is $5,499.
The AeroVue integrated flight deck was also part of Tuesday’s demonstration. Currently used in King Air B200s, the AeroVue replaces all legacy mechanical equipment and features two primary flight displays. BendixKing said voice control for the AeroVue is in the works, and displayed the capability at AirVenture.
Once the voice technology was activated with a simple switch, commands such as bringing up a particular chart or changing the altitude on the display were said and the display updated accordingly.
The AeroWave Text & Track is also on display. Offered through a subscription package, the AeroWave Text & Track can send an updated location beacon, can provide an internet signal to allow texting and sending and receiving email in flight, and has an SOS button that sends a custom message to chosen recipients.
All of the demonstrated BendixKing products and more can be found on display all week at the BendixKing Pavilion, with helpful staff around to give more information and answer questions. BendixKing also announced new deals to provide equipment to Aloong Aircraft, Eviation Aircraft, and Twinjet on Tuesday.
BendixKing President Gregg Cohen said that the recent slate of products announced by the company will soon be joined by even more, thanks to the capability of parent company Honeywell.
“More products are going to come out, and they’re going to continually come out in our cycles,” Gregg said. “There’s a few smaller products out here in the booth that have been turned around in three or four months using the Honeywell capability and technology, really making them at an affordable price for the operator.”
