This project focused on the design and implementation of an Electronic Flight Instrument System for a home built experimental aircraft known as a CH-701. Older aircraft use manual gauges and dials based on varying internal instruments such as gyro’s and the like but many of these traditional instruments to a singular GUI displaying multiple instruments data at one time. These devices are aimed at helping the pilot stay more alert and aware when flying between automatic warnings when in dangerous flying conditions / configurations as well as simplifying the instrument panel to only display what is absolutely necessary. These programs help with reaction time and response and will improve the overall safety of the flight for the pilot, passengers and ground civilians alike.
