The challenge

Most accidents during flights under visual flight rules (VFR) in general aviation occur due to the pilot's loss of orientation and resulting loss of control in the landing phase, or a loss of situational awareness that leads to a controlled flight into terrain (CFIT). Therefore, there is a large impending demand for 3D add-on navaids with synthetic vision (SV) and guidance for general aviation pilots to improve the safety of VFR and IFR (instrument flight rules) flights.

The solution

avionTek's 3D-PILOT™ products respond to a number of corresponding needs: pilot demand for safe VFR and IFR flight and landing, as well as demand for safe flying/landing at 2,000-plus European airports in general aviation without ground-based navigational landing aids and 30,000-plus airports worldwide based on precise autonomous 3D navigation.
