Ibis Aerospace has selected Chelton Flight Systems to provide primary flight and navigation instrumentation for its Ae270 single-engine utility turboprop. Chelton's avionics suite includes the FlightLogic Synthetic Vision dual-screen electronic flight instrument system, which will be fitted as standard on the seven-seat VIP-configured Ae270 Spirit. US certification is scheduled for the end of the year, leading to first deliveries early in 2004. The Ae270 is being certified for FAR 23 single-pilot operation and will be eligible for FAR 135 operation.
