Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Integrated Flight Display System

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.

Display

IFD Keys

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.

  • 1. Dimming knob for the display brightness mouse left
  • 2. Baro knob to adjust the altimeter setting wheel up for +, wheel down for - and wheel press set 1013 (standard)
  • L1-6 and R1-6 "Line Select Key"(LSK) is a rocker switch and can have two functions left/right indicated in the display
  • LK and RK rotary knob usable with wheel up, wheel down and wheel press and + Shift increases the amount
  • Page Select Key is a rocker switch first mouse left select the page then mouse left navigate through the tabs left/right
