The MyGoFlight Sight Line DisplayTM (SLD) puts critical flight information in a pilot’s line of sight. It can take the heat with an operating temperature range between 0° to 140°F; is sunlight readable with a very bright anti-glare display; and can be easily mounted without blocking existing instruments. This makes it now possible to have an iPad screen up on the glare shield eliminating the heads down time when viewing the iPad or blocking other instruments. This also helps those flying in large glass area cockpits in both airplanes and helicopters to now be able to see a screen not washed out by the sun or shut off by the heat.
The SLD follows an open architecture and allows all apps to be remotely displayed onto its screen automatically out of the box and will work with iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Developers using standard iOS protocols can write their software to take advantage of this display and do new things not possible before. For example, eliminate on screen control buttons and create as much as 30% more viewable information. An app can be set to display information based on phase of flight automatically. Taxi diagrams can be auto zoomed with directional arrows displayed; auto switch to a PFD or synthetic vision or moving map on take-off; switch to an approach plate with altitude and speeds displayed in line of sight when that is part of the flight plan. The ideas are endless.
