Bell has launched the latest version of its 407 single engine helicopter, the 407GX. The main new feature is an integrated glass flight deck that provides crews the essential flight information at a glance for improved situational awareness and operational capability.

The advanced Garmin G1000HTM integrated flight deck features two 10.4in (26.4cm) high-resolution LCD displays with an intuitive, easy to scan layout and an integrated avionics system that presents flight instrumentation, navigation, communication and identification information. Integrated safety features include: traffic information system (TIS); helicopter synthetic vision technology; moving map; helicopter terrain avoidance warning system (HTAWS), and a range ring calculation system. It also features engine and crew alerting systems such as power situation indicators and fuel flow, as well as automatic power assurance checks. The suite also features critical flight parameter storage on an SD card to enable post flight analysis.
