Envision Primary Flight Display Retrofit Upgrade for General & Business Aircraft

With several display options, including single and dual EXP5000 PFDs, 10.4-inch EX5000, and 5.5-inch EX500 MFD configurations, Envision can be customized to fit in virtually any panel space. The versatile EX500 or EXP5000 shows navigation data, MultiLink™ datalink weather, lightning, traffic, obstacles, and terrain with an intuitive user interface, therefore, reducing pilot workload.

The PFD and MFD are visual references to simplify flight by instrument navigation. The display consists of a “flying wedge”, indicating the airplane’s altitude and a set of “command bars”, indicating the recommended altitude to maintain the selected course.
