Bye Aerospace, developer of the all-electric family of eFlyer aircraft, is to supply the Garmin G500 TXi avionics system on the two-seat eFlyer 2.
"Bye Aerospace is very pleased to work with industry-leading Garmin and their engineering team on the world's first 14 CFR 23 normal category electric aircraft and avionics suite," says George E. Bye, CEO of Bye Aerospace. "We want to provide our flight school customers with the best user experience possible, and we believe the G500 TXi is the ideal avionics package."
"We are proud to work with the Bye Aerospace team to support the electric aircraft market with the G500 TXi flight display and a suite of Garmin avionics providing VFR and IFR GPS/NAV/COMM, standby, and transponder capabilities," adds Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing. "The modern G500 TXi flight display has been tailored for the eFlyer 2 to display its electric propulsion information, while also adding advanced capabilities such as safety enhancing synthetic vision, terrain and traffic alerting, geo-referenced charts, and more. These impressive capabilities are all featured on an intuitive, high-resolution touchscreen display that makes G500 TXi in the eFlyer 2 ideal for the global flight training market."
The eFlyer family, including the eFlyer 2 and the four-seat eFlyer 4, aims to be the first FAA-certified, practical, all-electric aircraft to serve the flight training and general aviation markets. All the company's current and future families of aircraft feature engineering, research and electric aircraft solutions are designed to specifically address compelling market needs. Benefits include five-fold lower operating costs, no CO2 emissions and decreased noise. Bye Aerospace estimates the eFlyer will eventually eliminate the release of millions of metric tons of CO2 each year as its deliveries begin and the general aviation fleet is replaced.
