The Sport 10.1 puts a large, primary flight display with moving maps in your panel. Software options let you purchase what you need now, and expand later, without removing the EFIS from your panel. Built on more than two decades of avionics experience, and using the industryís only AHRS that can operate unaided, the Sport 10.1 provides primary flight functions, moving maps and engine pages which can be driven by any GRT EIS engine monitor. The Sport 10.1 even includes synthetic approach to any runway, and depiction of obstacles on the PFD screen.
The optional synthetic vision, with its 10 mile range, provides intuitive terrain awareness. This awareness is essential whey flying in mountainous areas, and also creates a natural sense of height above the ground, location, and direction of flight. 3-D way-points, obstacles and runways, make navigation simple and help protect you from the threat of towers.
Ten split-screen combinations are included, combining two or three views into one screen of the PFD, map and HSI, and engine monitoring. Information is clearly presented, making it practical to fly with a single screen and rarely touch a button. For dual screen installations the split-screens provide a single-screen reversionary mode suitable for IFR flight.
Often the days we fly do not require constant monitoring of the airplanes attitude. Airspeed, altimeter, and a map are all we need, with the PFD attitude to back us up if conditions change. We love those days and so does the Sport 10.1. That is why we allow you to show airspeed and altimeter tapes on your moving map. The Sport 10.1 rounds everything out with wind and destination information.
The green arc shows where the airplane will be when it reaches a pre-selected altitude (ground level in this case). Extended centerlines make it easy to line up on the correct runway, and is essential at night.
The greatest value of obstacle alerting occurs when you find yourself forced to fly under an overcast in less than desirable visibility. At times like this, it must be effortless to understand such threats. That is why we show your threats on the PFD and not just the map. We show you the threat in the exact place you will be looking-the PFD. They appear in the same location out the window as they appear on the screen. Simple, and potentially life saving.
Internal AHRS and Air-Data simplify installation
Safe-fly ADS-B 2020 compliant GPS/uAvionix echoESX may be mounted directly to the back of the Sport 10.1, making installation even simpler.
Moving Map is included!
Situational Awareness without Synthetic Vision
Deferring synthetic vision does not mean you are sacrificing situational awareness. The Sport 10.1 shows obstacles and runways on the screen as they appear out the window, even without the synthetic vision. The highway-in-the-sky guidance for the synthetic approach still delivers the sense of reality necessary to make any approach easier and more precise.
Display ADS-B Traffic and Weather
Include the ADS-B Option, and the Sport 10.1 is ready to GRT EIS to display weather and traffic from a large variety of ADS-B receivers, including the popular Stratux/Raspberry Pi based receivers. Weather displays include weather radar overlay, as well as metars, temporary flight restrictions, and other weather functions as they become part of the ADS-B system. Traffic, with voice alerts, is displayed on the map, and on the primary flight display, just as the airplane appears out the window.
Angle-of-Attack (AOA) Sensing/Stall Warning
Angle-of-attack sensing is now available on the Sport 10.1. Sensing is via a two-port 45 degree pitot tube, such as those commonly available from a variety of manufacturers, or using a probe fashioned by the builder. This method has no moving parts, and allows the use of heated pitot tubes that preserve the stall warning function even in the presence of icing.
The GRT Avionics AOA function drives on-screen AOA symbology that shows too fast/too slow/optimal approach speeds, as well as stall warning. An audio output provides an approaching stall warning annunciation (a pulsating tone that varies with proximity to the stall warning angle) and a solid tone indicating stall is imminent.
Basic or Comprehensive Engine Monitoring
Connecting any GRT EIS to the Sport 10.1 provides you with comprehensive engine monitoring, but you can start simpler with the Basic Engine Monitoring Option. This low-priced option includes the sensors to provide oil pressure, oil temperature, tachometer, hourmeter and flight timer, which wire directly to the Sport 10.1. The engine data appears on split-screens, and the full graphical engine monitor pages. Later, when you choose to upgrade to an EIS, the sensors are also usable with the EIS, reducing the upgrade cost.
Connect and EIS for Comprehensive Engine Monitoring
Having produced the EIS engine monitor for over 20 years, weíve accumulated a great deal of personal and customer engine monitoring experience. From this came such exclusive features as the exhaust gas temperature (EGT) time history. A simple graph of the last two minutes of all EGTs, our engine monitoring system makes it effortless to distinguish between engine problems affecting one cylinder, or the entire engine. This distinction could be essential when making decisions in response to engine problems, especially at critical times such as initial climb out. We find it so useful that we never takeoff without it displayed, and we recommend you donít either.
CHT time history also proves useful by making the trend obvious. This is especially useful in high-performance airplanes, such as RVís, Lancairs, and all pushers, where engine cooling can require some pilot technique to manage. It leaves no doubt which way temperatures are headed.
Finally, we love the specific fuel consumption display. Its measure of engine efficiency that confirms when you have leaned properly, and tells you when you need to lean again.
Engine Data with a Bonus
Engine data is provided to the Sport 10.1 via the Engine Information System (EIS). The EIS is a complete instrument with a display and user-interface. It may be remotely mounted, just like any data collection device, but it can also be mounted in the instrument panel as a primary or backup display of engine data. In tandem seating airplanes it can be used as an instrument for the rear seat. Engine limits can be set in the EIS and can be used to drive its own warning light, even when remotely mounted. Have room in your panel? We recommend you mount it there. You will come to appreciate this time-honored engine monitoring instrument, even if it isnít as colorful as our EFIS.
