=IFD : Integrated Flight Display=
The system assist a single pilot to manage an IFR-operated flight. The design is clearly oriented to provide quick access to the requested information and to handle the data as quickly as possible. The goal is to relieve the pilot and reduce the pilot's workload.
The Integrated Avionics System in the Extra500 consists of two IFD-s in the front and one Keypad in the center console.

Each IFD has five page-select keys at the bottom. With these keys the active page can be selected. Once on the active page, the appropriate page-select key will navigate through the associated tabs. On the left- and right hand side, there are multi- function keys, so called "Line Select Key"(LSK). Each tab serves a function on the LSK. If it has a function, this is indicated with a light on the key (green at day, white at night). The intended function name of the LSK is displayed next to it on the display. On the left and right bottom corners, there are two rotary knobs. The intended function is displayed in the left/right corners of the tab indication.
