BEHA partner – Avidyne
When the BEHA development programme was started, it was clear that avionics was a key area of capability where the aircraft had to be setting the standard in its class. It is for this reason that the company selected one of the best in the business – Avidyne Corporation.
Having Avidyne as a partner, gives access to avionics expertise to deliver a state of the art cockpit and flight control systems capability that will position BEHA as one of the most advanced aircraft in its class.
Avidyne Corporation is a market-leader in the design and manufacturing of integrated avionics systems for general aviation (GA) aircraft. Avidyne is headquartered in Lincoln, MA, with facilities in Melbourne, FL. and Westerville (Columbus), OH.
Avidyne designs and manufactures integrated instruments, flight displays, VHF and GPS-based navigation, communication, and data link transceivers, digital flight control systems, as well as a range of ADS-B, traffic detection and weather detection sensors.
Experienced entrepreneur and pilot Dan Schwinn founded Avidyne in 1994 with the mission of modernizing GA avionics by applying advanced technology in order to improve safety and increase aircraft utility. “As a pilot and aircraft owner, I was struck by how little GA cockpits had changed over the last 30 years,” said Schwinn. “I saw huge potential to develop a core technology and define a new generation of avionics that improve flying safety.”
