LX9050 5" Colour Navigation and Vario System


The LX 9050 is a high end vario navigation system with extremely bright colour 5" WGA display readable in all sunlight conditions with backlight automatically adapted using a photo-sensor, running on well proven LX 8000 firmware with a multi-language interface. The simple and logical user interface is designed for top-level competitors, club operation as well as for gliding beginners. The instrument is preloaded with worldwide terrain maps, airspace and airport databases. Integrated FLARM collision avoidance system and flight recorder according to the highest level IGC specification. It manages complex tasks with assigned areas manipulation and real-time flight optimization to meet FAI and OLC rules.
