AIR Glide Variometer System and FLARM Accessories

Overview
Air Avionics is a young, innovative company in Germany that has already established a reputation for high-quality soaring products. Their new AirGlide Vario is a very powerful new soaring flight instrument.

AIR Glide Variometer System

Starting with the AIR Glide vario system, Air Avionics launches a whole new range of gliding products. The AIR Glide vario combines basic navigation, Air Avionics display functionality as well as many other features with a new technology variometer, based on current research projects and latest sensor technology. It communicates with moving-map solutions and can be easily integrated into existing cockpit layouts.

Components of a Complete AIR Glide Vario System

  • AIR Glide Display S (or M or L)
  • AIR Glide Sensor Unit

A new generation variometer
With a combination of 14 sensors, the relative airmass movement around the aircraft is measured in real time. This means big progress compared to normal variometers, that only use pressure sensors to sense aircraft/air-mass movement. Independent of flight direction the pilot sees real time air-mass and wind data updated repeatedly every second. In many flight-tests through 2011 pre-production devices have already shown the potential of this new technology.

Giant display, easy to install
A new design concept integrates a device with big 2.7“ display into a small 57mm standard instrument cutout. The perfectly readable display features a contrast ratio similar to printed paper. It is readable in any lighting condition and supersedes mechanical pointers.

More than just a vario
The AIR Glide vario system combines:

  • Vario/Speed Command
  • Basic navigation with waypoint database (no tasks)
  • Final-glide calculation
  • Digital compass
  • Accurate wind speed and direction calculation - while cruising
  • Butterfly FLARM®-Radar display
  • FLARM®-voice output
  • Artificial horizon with true airspeed and true altitude
  • Fully certified IGC-flight-recorder
  • Many other features that simplify flying

Vario and sensors
Display- and sensor-unit are two separate devices. Both are connected through a standardized interface-system used in professional airborne systems called CANaerospace. Other display-units or larger screen devices can be easily connected in the future. The AIR Glide Vario system forms the foundation for a whole new product family of gliding instruments from Air Avionics.

Integrated Sensor Unit (ISU)
Our Integrated Sensor Unit contains all sensors. 14 single sensors detect changes in static-pressure, total-pressure, TE-pressure, Temperature, 3D acceleration, 3D turnrate and direction through a 3D-compass-sensor. Additionally a built in state-of-the-art 60-channel high-accuracy GPS receiver delivers accurate position data. This makes the ISU a full-scale inertial measurement unit. All gathered datasets are processed in a high-performance computer and deliver very accurate results.

The sensor system has been developed in conjunction with university research activity that has been performed on our hardware. The exact 3D-position of the aircraft is computed in real-time, many times per second.

All used algorithms are field-upgradeable. Throughout the coming flying seasons we will gather lots of user-data and experience and are going to be able to further improve our software in order to provide even more accurate results.

Variometer Comparison
Device Measuring Method
Normal Variometer:  • Changes in pressure between static pressure, absolute pressure and TE-pressure
AIR Glide Vario System:  • Changes in pressure between static-pressure, absolute-pressure and TE-pressure.
 • Inertial measurement unit computes 3D-position in real-time comparing 14 different sensors.

Real-time Wind and Airmass Info.
For the first time it is possible to measure and display wind as well as airmass data in real-time.

  • Many times per second the current airmass-movement (netto vario) is detected and displayed on the variometer scale as a blue circle.
  • Our new "live-wind" delivers accurate wind information that is updated many times a second. The pilot does not have to circle or change direction to get the latest wind information.

Design and Installation
The new design concept integrates a big 2.7" display into a standard 2,25" panel cutout. The device is mounted from the front of the panel. It is only marginally bigger than a standard 2.25" device and can be easily mounted into any existing cockpit.

The very bright display depicts all necessary information clearly arranged and bigger than common variometers do. The display utilizes special anti-reflection technology making it perfectly readable in *any* lighting condition. Its readability is comparable to printed paper, making mechanical pointers obsolete.

Without mechanical pointers the displayed content can be made bigger and it is possible to suit specific display requirements more flexibly.

Display Size Comparison
Device Display Size Cutout
Normal Glide Computer: 2.7 to 2.8" 3 1/8" (80 mm)
Normal Vario: <1.5" (+ pointer) 2 1/4" (57 mm)
AIR Glide Vario: 2.7" 2 1/4" (57 mm)

All compatible devices, e.g. one sensor-unit and two display-units for two-seaters, are connected through a standardized interface-system used in professional airborne systems (e.g. Airbus A380 or Boeing 787) with robust wiring called CANaerospace. Other display-units or larger screen devices can be easily connected in the future. The AIR Glide Vario system forms the foundation for a whole new product family of gliding instruments from Air Avionics. There is no need for complex wiring.


Features in Detail

Vario and speed-command
Vario, netto-vario and wind are accurately computed in real-time with data from high tech sensors.

Display Items on the Vario page:

  • A big black arrow-indicator shows the current vario value.
  • Vertical airmass movement is shown as a blue circle
  • Average climb is displayed as a smaller green arrow.
  • Four freely configurable Info-Boxes show desired values.
  • The wind-arrow depicts the accurate live-wind.
  • The built-in three-dimensional compass always aligns the wind angle perfectly to the roll-axis of the aircraft. This makes the wind arrow turn smoothly, even at high turn-rates.

Independent of the chosen function-page, all needles are always visible, also e.g. the navigation-page.


Artificial horizon and airspeed indicator
The AIR Glide Vario system contains an artificial horizon. The horizon can be of help in dangerous situations that may occur for example when there is unpredicted cloud development during wave-flights. The horizon is a state of the art, solid state precise instrument and can be compared to expensive certified solutions.

The AIR Glide Vario system also features an accurate airspeed indicator with TAS-indication as well as an accurate altimeter.

Horizon functionality can be deactivated in a tamper-proof manner (if necessary for a soaring contest, etc.).

Important Note for U.S. Contest Pilots:
Current U.S. soaring contest rules prohibit the use of any device which allows flight without reference to the ground.  So you would need to remove this device or disable the artificial horizon while flying in a U.S. soaring contest.  I don't agree with this rule, but I do recommend abiding by the rules.  Their official policy is posted here:
http://www.ssa.org/files/member/Restricted Equipment Policy.pdf

In May of 2013 the U.S. Contest Committee OK'd the Butterfly variometer for use in U.S. contests as long as the artificial horizon feature has been disabled for the duration of the contest. Details are below:

The waiver and requirements (below) will be on the SSA website.

1. The presence of the instrument must be made known to the CD or Scorer prior to the first contest grid.

2. Prior to the first contest grid, the prohibited functionality must be disabled using the vendor's lockout mechanism for the entire period of the contest.

3. Prior to the first contest grid, the instrument version information and disablement must be shown to and verified by the CD, Scorer or their designee. Failure to comply with these requirements may be subject to a contest penalty.

Navigation
The navigation function gives you directions to airports or turnpoints from the integrated database. A very accurate final glide computer calculates your glidepath based on wind, aircraft-polar, bugs, and current total-energy.

The built in compass-sensor delivers exact true heading information. The 3D-compass is fully compensated and requires no set-up or calibration and is not prone to compass errors. The navigation page is simple to use and perfect as a backup or for basic navigation.

With our interface modules all generated datasets can be sent to other devices like PNA/PDAs or wirelessly to iGlide.


FLARM®-Display and voice output
Our new vario communicates with FLARM® compatible devices. Traffic information as well as tactical data is shown on a special radar screen.

A voice engine gives relevant information and warning messages in natural voice. Voice messages are only given in dangerous or relevant situations. They seamlessly enhance the pilot's workflow and do not distract.

If a dangerous traffic situation is imminent, The AIR Glide Vario system warns in clear natural voice: "Warning. Glider, 12 O'Clock, High".

Voice output also gives you tactical hints, e.g. when a team partner behind you starts circling: "Eight Yankee starts circling".

Through integrated sensors the AIR Glide Vario system detects battery voltage, gear-state, flap-state etc.


Audio
The AIR Glide Vario system mixes other audio-signals (Vario, COM) with generated voice messages or vario-tones. To ensure good transmission quality, all vario-tones are reduced in volume during sending/receiving COM.

Up to two speakers can be attached to the vario, this is ideal for two-seaters and makes future implementations of directional voice-warnings possible.


IGC Logger and USB
The AIR Glide Vario system features a full-scale IGC-Logger (not yet IGC approved) which is to be certified at the highest possible level.

It is possible to read-out IGC-files, declare tasks, update system software or change settings via USB-stick.

AIR-ATD-57

AIR Traffic Display, ATD-57

Works great with PowerFLARM Core.

Enhance Your Traffic Awareness
AIR Traffic Display is our newly designed premium display solution for traffic data. It features robust hardware, a sunlight readable display and advanced functionality reducing flightcrew workload and increasing traffic awareness. Air Traffic Display works well with many collision avoidance devices like TRX, FLARM®, or systems with GARMIN® TIS interface.

Note: The manufacturer does not include a microSD memory card. One can be added at check-out for $10. I will load the latest FlarmNet file onto the microSD memory card. I highly recommend this option.

The newly designed traffic indicator - From the inventors of the graphic FLARM®-Display
With the "Butterfly Displays" we have introduced the first graphic FLARM® Displays back in 2007. We have used all of our experience and the results of current university research to design a truly new and powerful traffic indicator from scratch. AIR Traffic Display supports pilots and effectively enhances traffic awareness. Its unique user interface helps understanding traffic situations more precisely and its intuitive warning features provide reliable data for making well founded split-second decisions in hazardous traffic situations.

Works well with popular collision warning systems
There are many different collision warning systems on the market. AIR Traffic Display is compatible to many systems, even if they are older. It works with all FLARM® compatible systems, ADS-B-IN devices, and with systems that use the GARMIN® TIS protocol. Its standard design fits into 57mm (2.25") panel cutouts. AIR Traffic Display comes with a standard cable and easily integrates into existing installations.

Robust, premium hardware
The new AIR Traffic Display is perfectly readable in bright sunlight yet it draws very little power. It can be used at day and night. The robust all-metal design has been developed and tested to comply with aviation standards.

New Functions
We have added a list of new and unique functions to increase safety. A new radar symbology helps differentiating gliders from powered aircraft. The new alert view helps to avoid misinterpretations in conflicting traffic situations. Traffic is also monitored after signal loss with a tracking of its probable position.

Better through research
Many functions of the new AIR Traffic Display have been developed as a result of current research projects at leading research facilities such as the Institute of Flight Systems and Automatic Control at the Technical University of Darmstadt.

Compatibility
AIR Traffic Display is compatible to all FLARM® compatitle systems, many ADS-B-IN devices, and with systems that use the GARMIN® TIS protocol. It directly works with TRX-Devices, FLARM®-Devices, PowerFLARM®-Devixes, LX-FLARM® and many other units from different manufacturerers without configuration. Included with delivery is a standard-FLARM®-Cable (RJ45).

Installation
AIR Traffic Display can directly replace an old Butterfly Display or a different FLARM®-Display. It is covered by Minor Change Approvals for TRX-Devices or FLARM®-Comaptible Systems as well as EASA Standard Changes. It therefore can be installed into a broad range of aircraft without re-certification.

    Head-On Alert View
    Conflicting head-on traffic is displayed using a unique "horizon-style" indication that allows for quick and easy situation conception. The new indication has been developed in cooperation with research facilities, with the help of expert interviews and the help of surveys of several hundreds of pilots. It can help to reduce reaction time in confliciting situations.
  • ATD57_outofrange
    Signal Loss
    After losing the signal of a selected target, the target's last known position is continuously monitored and displayed with increasing vagueness. This helps keeping an eye on out-of-range-targets and estimating their probable position.
  • ATD57_select
    Target Selection
    Targets on the radar-view can be selected using a rotary knob. Pilots can actively select a target to review detailed target information such as vertical separation or distance. The integrated database delivers in-detail infos on targets such as registration or aircraft type. Targets of special interest can be marked in different colors for easier recognition.
  • ATD57_teamselect
    Team Selection
    Sometimes airspace is really crowded, so is the display. Finding special targets can take very long. AIR Traffic Display uses softkeys for fast and convenient selection of up to four special targets like teammates or friends.
  • ATD57_warn
    New Alert View
    The new alert screen has been designed as a result of current research. It helps reducing potential for misconceptions, especially in situations with high bank angles of the own aircraft. The screen is easy to interpret, even for crews who are unfamiliar to flying with traffic warning systems.
  • ATD57_radar-150w
    Traffic Indication
    Traffic is indicated in a "radar-style" screen. The range can be adjustet using a rotary knob from 500m to 32km radius. The own aircraft (magenta) and other received traffic are shown with aircraft symbols.
  • ATD57_symbols-150w
    Advanced Symbology
    Different types of traffic (powered aircraft, gliders, circling aircraft) are shown with different symbols. Very high or very low targets are smaller than targets in the same altitude as the own aircraft. Differential altitude is directly indicated on the symbol (little plus or minus sign) - helping to easily interpret the traffic situation.
  • ATD57_nightmode
    White on Black mode
    The user interface can be switched to a dark mode. Especially when flying at night, the dark user interface helps avoiding distractions. Some users also prefer the dark user interface in daytime. Especially if other black displays are used in the same panel, AIR Traffic Display shows a familiar face.

Mount-PFLARM-Portable-Flat Mounting Kit for PowerFLARM Portable - Flat Dual-Lock Version
This rugged yet lightweight aluminum mounting bracket makes it easy to mount a PowerFLARM Portable on top of any flat surface - such as the top of the instrument panel cover.  It includes 2 parts, a flat plate the attaches to the bottom of the PowerFLARM Portable using 2 screws, and a "U" shaped mounting base that mounts to the flat surface with 4 screws and nylon lock nuts.  3M Dual-Lock is used to secure the PowerFLARM Portable and its mounting plate to the mounting base. 

It may be easier and less expensive to use 3M Dual-Lock fasteners to secure the PowerFLARM Portable directly to the mounting surface, but that would cause the bottom of the PowerFLARM Portable and the top of the mounting surface to get "gunky" from the adhesive on the Dual-Lock (which is very difficult to remove).  Also, since the majority of the bottom of the PowerFLARM Portable is taken-up by the battery compartment cover (which is not secure enough to use as a mounting surface) this system offers a much more secure solution.

Dimensions:
Width: 101 mm (3.98 in)
Depth: 81 mm (3.19 in)

Mount-PFLARM-Portable-Tall Panel-Mount Kit for PowerFLARM Portable - Tall Version
This rugged yet lightweight aluminum mounting bracket makes it easy to mount a PowerFLARM Portable in the instrument panel.  The 4 mounting holes are spaced to match a standard 3 1/8" (80 mm) instrument hole.  They are equally spaced on an 89 mm bolt circle.  However, the overall width may be wider than other 80 mm size instruments (see dimensions below).  

Two screws are provided for attaching the mount to the bottom of the PowerFLARM Portable using it's built-in threaded mounting holes.  Four screws and nylon locknuts are provided for attaching the mounting adapter to the instrument panel. 

Note: You will want to remotely mount the PowerFLARM's FLARM and ADS-B/Transponder antennas using an extension cable.  I will have them in stock soon in several lengths.  Since the GPS antenna is built-into the PowerFLARM, and it may not get good reception if mounted under other instruments in your panel, you may need to buy a remote GPS antenna.  I will stock those soon.  If the PowerFLARM is mounted at the top of the panel - you shouldn't need a remote GPS antenna and may not need to remote mount the FLARM and ADS-B/Transponder antennas - if you make a holes for them to stick up through the top of the instrument panel cover.

Mount-Disp-Rect-RAM RAM Mounting Arm Kit for Butterfly FLARM Rectangular Display
This is a nice, clean mounting option for the Butterfly FLARM Rectangular Display (not included).  It utilizes a custom mounting plate together with a RAM-A-237 ball with threads, RAM-A-201 arm and RAM-B-238 diamond base.

Weight: 2.7 ounces (77 grams)
Length of arm from center of ball to center of ball: 1.75 inches (44 mm)
Overall length of assembly from the back of the base to the face of the display mounting plate: 3.35 inches (85 mm)

An optional RAM-A-201B can be used to make the arm 1.5 inches (38 mm) longer - making the overall length of the assembly 4.85 inches (123 mm).  It would replace the standard length arm in the assembly.

Note: The small RAM "A" balls can sometimes fall off over time if you clamp the mounting arm down too tightly onto the balls.  But RAM offers a lifetime warranty on the parts.  RAM "B" parts never fail, but they are a bit large and clunky looking when supporting such a small item. 

If you prefer to use RAM "B" (1" balls) mounting parts - the RAM-B-237 works very nicely with the custom mounting plate in this kit.  If you go that route, I recommend using a RAP-B-201 standard length arm or RAP-B-201-A short arm and RAP-B-238 diamond base.  A RAM "B" arm would be overkill since the display is very small and light, but RAM "B" parts never fail.  This approach may may sense if you are using other RAM "B" parts in your glider.

4 mounting screws are included for mounting the unit to the display.

PowerFLARM-Y-Adapter-RJ45

PowerFLARM Y-Adapter, RJ45
The PowerFLARM Y-Adapter, RJ45 is an RJ45 "splitter". It makes it possible to connect 2 FLARM displays or a single FLARM display and 12V power leads to a single RJ45 port on a FLARM unit. To avoid data collision issues
, one of the 2 ports allows data in both directions between the FLARM and display and the 2nd port only sends data from the FLARM to the other display - It does not allow data to be sent from the 2nd display to the FLARM. One display can both send and receive data from the FLARM and the other display can only receive data from the FLARM. 12V and 3.3V power connections are passed through to both ports.
