[UPDATE - 1.2][AERONAUTICS] Spirit Avionics

Spirit Avionics produces electronics that every airplane still flying in the world today must use - computer systems, instrument panels, and other electronics - hence the formation of the word "avionics", a portmanteau of "aviation" and "electronics". We pride ourselves in delivering features that ultimately provide a completely new flying experience - making flying safer, faster, and more efficient. It is the future of aviation and a new era of flying!



Our History
Spirit Airlines was founded in 1978 when the production of jumbo jets first began. With bigger and heavier airplanes came the need for streamlined yet functional avionics: more parts meant more things the flight crew had to monitor, and avionics were their tools to do so. In the mid-1990s. Spirit Avionics unveiled a huge leap in the avionics industry: what is known today as the "glass cockpit". We replaced all of the analog gauges and other controls with digital and computerized systems. For the flight crew, it meant a unified display of all vital information needed to fly the aircraft that intelligently sorted information and displayed it when necessary, reducing clutter yet allowing for functionality.

Today, almost 20 years later, we continue to revolutionize the avionics industry - with state-of-the-art PCAS, EICAS, ACAS, ACARS integration with the autopilot mechanisms, we provide the newest innovation in piloting aircraft. We encourage you to give our systems a try and embrace the new era of flying.



Our Products
Integrated Avionics System (IAS)
The IAS is the fruit of over 20 years of research, design, trial, error, and improvement. We have combined all of our newest innovations and placed them in one integrated, synergistic system. It is made up of many conventional systems, including:
  • Autopilot and autothrottle
    Has standard modes of operation, including heading, lateral navigation, VOR/LOC, altitude hold, vertical speed, level change, vertical navigation, and ILS/approach. Essentially, the autopilot is the interface that the flight crew will interact with most directly. The autopilot then works with other components to fly the aircraft. Also has a neat autoland function pre-programmed to work with over 200 airports around the world.
  • EGPWS (Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System)
    A necessity on all modern aircraft, this sounds a warning when the altitude is too low or when a CFIT is about to occur. With modern terrain clearance floor, terrain display, and terrain database look ahead functionality, our EGPWS system provides a greater level of safety than those of competitors', whose systems often lack these features and only rely on a single radio altimeter as a data source.
  • ACARS (Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System)
    This system provides a datalink between the aircraft and a ground station or a satellite. The connection can be used for many things: for airlines, it can be used for systems reporting and maintenance, and for pilots or air traffic control, it can provide a more accurate fix on location data. The system was originally built on teletypewriter protocols, which we have replaced with much more modern digital protocols. We have improved the system to use only connections encrypted in the AES-256 algorithm, as hijack and sabotage attempts have occurred with our competitors' systems, and we intend to make such acts impossible with our system. Our ACARS system also features a RFDR/RCVR function (remote flight data recorder/cockpit voice recorder) - in the case of an accident where the physical recorders cannot be found, a copy of the data will still be stored elsewhere by transmission via ACARS.
  • EICAS (Engine Indication and Crew Alert System)
    The EICAS provides important troubleshooting information during an emergency, as well as instructions on steps of action to take. During normal flight, it displays information about the engines, landing gear, and flap extension. Any warnings or alarms triggered will also appear on this subpanel.
  • FMS (Flight Management System)
    The FMS contains primarily navigation data regarding waypoints and landmarks. Pilots can use it to enter waypoints that they wish to pass through to establish a route. Spirit's FMS utilizes fourteen different sensors to determine the location of the aircraft - one GPS sensor, five scanning DME sensors, five VOR sensors, and three independent inertial reference system sensors, which is more than any other FMS on the market.
  • ACAS (Airborne Collision Avoidance System)
    This system ensures that the path taken by the aircraft will not cross (or come dangerously close) to that of any others. The margin of safety can be configured as desired, and unlike other ACAS systems, Spirit's ACAS allows for real-time traffic information broadcasted through ACARS to be used, so that the position of other aircraft can be determined even before their transponder broadcasts are received.
  • MAIS (Meteorological and Atmospheric Information System)
    This system receives live weather updates from a forward pointing nose radar, as well as from secondary sources through the ACARS datalink. It also reports the surrounding weather conditions back to the satellite or ground station via ACARS, where the information can then be broadcasted to other nearby aircraft. The system provides warnings when conditions are unsuitable for flying, taking off, or landing, factoring in factors like microburst prediction, tailwinds, and wind shear.
  • PCAS (Propulsion Controlled Aircraft System)
    Possibly our greatest improvement to aviation, the PCAS was originally researched by NASA in 2009, after which we got wind of it and began researching and designing a PCAS that was both functional and affordable. Now, we are finally glad to have reached that destination. The PCAS allows for pilots to continue flying an airplane after the primary controls have failed, which may occur in the event of explosive decompression, incendiary detonation, or other loss of integrity to the airframe. The primary controls often fail due to physical control cables being jammed (on older aircraft) or loss of hydraulic power (on newer, fly-by-wire aircraft). PCAS solves this issue by controlling the thrust differentials of the engines of the aircraft. For a plane that is rolling in one direction, for example, the PCAS will apply more power to the lower side in order to level the airplane. The PCAS, however, still does not provide the same level of control as the primary control surfaces, but it does provide enough control for pilots to land the aircraft safely. Such a backup system can improve the odds of survival greatly after a loss of primary control surfaces.

The IAS is available for all Monteluci Aeronautica and Post Aircraft Corporation commercial aircraft that has two or more turbines/jets at this time. For best results with the PCAS, we recommend that the aircraft being retrofitted have at least three turbines/jets. These systems are not compatible with charter jets, military aircraft or other general aviation aircraft (those able to carry five people or less). Commercial aircraft retrofitted as cargo carriers are compatible.

Price: $82,400 - includes parts and service
If your aircraft has more than four turbines/jets, please contact us via TG as our system may require some adjustments to fit your needs.
