A New PC Based EFIS from Levil

The Levil EFIS-1831 series brings to the cockpit functionality that many of us have enjoyed on a desktop. The EFIS-1831 is based on the Windows XP operating system, which allows pilots to select their favorite flight packages. The three demo systems on display at AirVenture this year are running Mountain Scope, Flight Cheetah, and Levil default PDF software. With one knob and a touchscreen, the pilot can configure the layout of the screen by simply touching the screen and dragging the displays around to suit individual taste. For those who live where GPS map data is not readily available or who simply don’t want to pay for updates, the EFIS-1831 can accept map data from a number of different sources.

Levil’s basic EFIS-1831 is $2700; add the engine monitor and AHRS and the price goes to $4000. For more information and an explanatory video, visit www.aviation.levil.com. You can also find Levil’s display at Oshkosh AirVenture through August 1 at Building D, Booth 3065.

Contributing Editor Bill Repucci was handed his Private Pilot’s certificate back in the days when the written test was taken with a Number 2 pencil. At the time, Bill was told that he now had a “License to Learn.” And learn he did, mostly that there was humor buried in the quirky ways of those of us who call ourselves aviators.
