The GENESIS ESI-500 features a high-resolution, 24-bit color display for the presentation of altitude, attitude, airspeed, aircraft track, vertical speed, airspeed awareness cues, and slip/skid information. An internal battery powers the unit in the event of a panel power failure. The scalable ESI-500 has numerous display options, including SynVis, navigation, terrain alerting, obstacles, metric altitude, vertical speed, and heading. The unit can be configured per aircraft performance specifications to include an airspeed awareness band highlighting VNE and VMO cues.

“When pilots view the vibrant display, they’ll be impressed by the amount of data that is available in this class of standby,” Riddle adds. “L-3’s 40 years of standby technology and experience culminate in the GENESIS ESI-500.”
