The AeroVonics AV-30 is a fully digital dual-mode attitude and direction indicator that replaces the corresponding legacy vacuum driven instruments in older general aviation aircraft.
When configured as an Attitude Indicator (AI), the AV-30 can replace the legacy stand-alone attitude indicator providing a solid-state presentation of roll, pitch and slip. When configured as a direction indicator (DG), it can replace the non-slaved directional gyro.
In both modes, supplemental data can be presented as graphical and textual overlays, fully configurable by the pilot. If interfaced to a compatible panel mount GPS navigator, GPS navigational data such as current waypoint, distance to waypoint, cross track error, and more can be overlaid, and direction can be slaved to GPS track. When interfaced to an OAT probe, temperature corrected air data and GPS navigation information can be displayed.
In each mode, three separate pages can be setup by the pilot, allowing for various configurations for different flight phases or to customize the desired clutter level. A dedicated, fully decluttered page is provided in each display mode where all supplementary data fields can be turned off, leaving only the basic instrument presentation.
The AV-30 preserves the original look and feel by rear-mounting in the instrument panel thereby maintaining the circular nature of the indicator and eliminating the need to cut into existing instrument panel overlays. The unit is highly customizable providing several UI styles and font selections allowing the pilot to select the desired look and feel.
Internal battery provides a typical 2 hour operation (30 minutes guaranteed at -20C).
