Smartdeck

Goodrich, maker of the stormscope, skywatch, etc., is stating that their new Smartdeck glass cockpit (NASA’s highway in the sky) will be certified and first delveries will occur in 2002 through an OEM who is under contract. Is the OEM Cirrus? The system looks awesome. Check it out at http://www.bfgavionics.com/docs/sdeck.html

Also, does anyone know what the rate of climb and cruise speed is on the SR22 at 15,000 and 17,500 feet?

I have talk with a salesman at Goodrich and he said they are not presently working with Cirrus. Perhaps it will be the Eclipse. Eclipse did announce that Avidyne and BF Goodrich will provide the avionics for them.

I spoke with the Goodrich people at Oshgosh and they said they hope to have SmartDeck certified in 2 yrs, but expect it to take 3 yrs. They of course could not say which aircraft it would be certified in first.

No, Eclipse is using Avidyne and BAE Systems
