Garmin’s G500H TXi touchscreen flight display has received certification and is now available for normal category VFR helicopters, the company announced on 3 January.  

The G500H TXi display has been designed specifically for normal category VFR helicopters and is available in several sizes and formats, including a large 10.6in touch-controlled display and two versions of seven-inch touch-controlled displays in either portrait or landscape orientations.

The G500H TXi incorporates a clean-sheet touchscreen design with modern processors that support improved map and chart rendering, faster panning and contemporary single-finger zoom and pinch-to-zoom gestures.

It is equipped with five-colour Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning System (HTAWS), WireAware wire- strike avoidance technology, as well as optional Garmin HSVT 3D synthetic vision. HTAWS offers forward-looking avoidance capability and predicts where potential hazards may exist to help pilots maintain safe separation from nearby terrain, towers or obstacles.
