EFIS is an acronym for "Electronic Flight Information System". The EFIS Horizon Series I provides primary flight data (attitude, altitude, airspeed, vertical speed, steering), graphical engine data, and a moving map. It is designed as a cost-effective replacement of traditional vacuum-powered mechanical gyros. Unlike mechanical gyros, no maintenance is required, and installation is much quicker, easier, and lighter. Aerobatics, vibration, and temperature do not affect the life of the EFIS, as it is completely electronic.

In addition to these benefits, the EFIS Horizon Series I provides data not available with mechanical gyros, such a navigation steering data integrated with the attitude display, an artificial view of the world showing airports and obstacles just the way they appear out the window, continuously computed winds, and much, much more.

Its easy to get excited about the functionality of the Horizon EFIS, but it’s more than just features.

System examples:
Single Horizon-HS display, Single AHRS.
Dual Horizon-HS displays, Dual AHRS, Engine Monitor with probes (H/ENG-LYC-4).

The Horizon EFIS is engineered from the ground up without compromises. Small details, like a sunlight readable display, wide –15 to +160 deg F operating temperature range, and an attitude/heading reference system (AHRS) that is built to aerospace standards could easily go unnoticed…and that is exactly the idea.

Instead, what you notice is how naturally all flight information is communicated…how seamlessly navigation and attitude are combined with a highway in the sky presentation, and the flexibility of the user-configurable features.

Even more important are the details that go unnoticed, such as the continuous built-in test functions, the consideration for failure modes and effects, the validation and cross-check of flight critical data...in short the details you would expect in avionic equipment that gives it the integrity making it suitable for flight...details some other manufacturers are unaware of...details that come from our extensive aviation/aerospace experience.

The Horizon EFIS goes far beyond the functions of conventional instruments. The elimination of mechanical instrumentation provides advantages not only in the reliability and freedom from maintenance, but also the ability to provide data not previously available, and in a format that more naturally communicates the state of the aircraft to the pilot.
Dual AHRS
Single AHRS
Features:
  • Highway In the Sky Guidance – effortless and intuitive 3-dimensional guidance
  • Vertical Guidance – Never miss an assigned altitude, or begin a descent too late.
  • User Defined Approach – Vertical and lateral guidance for ILS like approaches to any airport.
  • Digital and graphical display of GPS data
  • Unlimited Pitch and Roll – no gimbal limits!
  • Slaved Directional Gyro – No manual input required!
  • Airspeed, Altitude, and Vertical Speed – No delicate mechanical movements.
  • True Airspeed –
  • Density Altitude –
  • Outside Air Temperature --
  • Wind Speed and Direction –
  • Continuously computed.
  • G-meter Complete engine monitoring –
  • Graphical displays to enhance pilot awareness of engine operation.
  • Moving Map – with gyro-stabilized for smooth, no jerk screen updates.
  • Altitude Encoder with Serial and Grey Code outputs.
  • High speed processor for smooth and seamless (no jerk) display.
  • User-selectable and programmable screens with split screen or full screen modes
  • Alarms and Redlines user settable
  • Instant Start-up –
  • 15 second gyro alignment time
  • And those are just a few of the features of the primary flight data display.
Other features include:
  • Sophisticated AHRS/GPS cross-check
  • No Vacuum pump, filter, or maintenance.
  • Simple Installation – Much easier than traditional gyro/vacuum systems.
  • No mechanical parts to wear out
  • Localizer, Glideslope, and Auto Pilot Ready
It’s hard to overstate the dramatic improvement the highway-in-the-sky steering provides over traditional instruments. Not only are lateral and vertical steering errors reduced by 50-80%, but pilot workload is also reduced, and the ability to capture a desired path it greatly improved (Barrows, A.K, et. al., 2001).
