    OPTIONAL ACCESSORY

    FTG-410 TONE GENERATOR

    The FTG-410 gives pilots important audio alerts when

    operating at low altitude, at nighttime, over water, or

    rough terrain.

    • Audio alerting enhancement to call attention to

    critical

    altitudes when operating in hazardous

    environments

    • Compatible with existing avionics and audio

    systems

    • Two-channel system provides maximum value and

    flexibility in installation

    FreeFlight Systems modern radar altimeters are

    backed by more than 50 years of experience, and

    have a proven track record as a reliable solution in

    the most challenging and critical segments of flight.

    The TSO and ETSO-approved systems are extensively

    deployed worldwide in helicopter fleets, including

    some of the largest HEMS operations worldwide.

    Designed for helicopter and seaplane operations, our

    radar altimeters provide precise AGL information from

    2,500 feet to ground level.

    CRITICAL INFORMATION VISUALIZED. VITAL FLIGHT DETAILS AVAILABLE VIA

    EASY-TO-READ LED READOUT.

  • DISPLAYSRADAR ALTIMETER DISPLAYSFreeFlight Systems’ line of panel-mount displays provide critical AGL and trend information to the pilot which is especially important when there are no visual clues to the landscape surrounding the airport or the flight path.

    RADAR ALTIMETER DISPLAYS The RAD-40 and RAD-45 Radar Altimeter Displays are compatible

    with the FreeFlight Systems RA-4000, RA-4500 and FRA-5500

    Radar Altimeters. Critical information is displayed on a bright

    LED read-out as reported from the Radar Altimeter unit through

    a standard serial interface. The pilot is able to set a decision

    height (DH), and when the preset altitude is reached, a DH LED is

    illuminated and a DH discrete output is set. The pilot is also able

    to activate five trip-point discrete outputs (100-1000 ft.) to signal

    additional alerts to the navigation management system if the

    aircraft descends through these altitudes.

    In addition to the standard version, both the

    RAD-40 and RAD-45 are also available as a night vision goggle

    (NVG) compatible display.
