PS Engineering, the leading innovator in aircraft audio panels and high- fidelity intercom systems has reached a breakthrough in cockpit convenience and connectivity.

Introducing the new PMA8000BT, featuring Bluetooth capability. This audio control panel offers pilots with smart phones, like iPhone, BlackBerry, or Palm Pilot and others, to connect wirelessly with the audio panel. This capability allows the music in the Smartphone to stream into the audio panel for distribution to the aircraft occupants. In addition, it allows the pilot, and anybody on the intercom, to connect to the cellular telephone from the audio panel. No clumsy wires. It has been extremely well received, but they wanted to proceed carefully in the certificated world, to make the application as transparent and seamless as possible.

Mission accomplished. Operation of the Bluetooth link is as simple as using the Smartphone to discover the PMA8000BT and establish a link. From there, either place a call and press the TEL button, or begin streaming music. Four muting modes and music distribution capability allow the pilot and passengers to decide how the music is treated. The audio panel remains robust and in complete compliance with the FAA TSO requirements.”

In addition to the new Bluetooth technologies, the PMA8000BT continues to offer all the category-leading features of the PMA8000B, including six-place intercom with IntelliVox®, dual-channel entertainment inputs through hardwire connections, fully featured audio panel functions with the new Monitor Mode, digital aircraft recorder and pilot selectable audio panel configurations.

Not really a review but the 8000BT does NOT come with an external audio jack. Earlier revisions may have it but the current panel available now does not.

Q: Do these units come with mounting tray and connector kit?

Yes, both versions of the PMA 8000, part numbers 11-04354 and 11-08537 include the mounting tray and connector kit.

Q: What does NVG stand for in the model drop down?

NVG stands for night vision goggles, which means the screen is visible with night vision goggles. These are typically military applications.

Q: Will the PS Engineering PMA 8000B audio panel work in a 14v system?

Yes, it will. This unit is designed for an 11-30 VDC range.

Q: I have a SiriusSXM SXAR1 receiver that broadcasts the sat radio on bluetooth. Can the 8000BT receive this signal and output it to the headsets? Can my cell phone be paired to the 8000BT at the same time? Chris

Per P.S. Engineering the 8000BT can receive both signals. One is a music source and the other is a hand held device.

Q: Will the Bluetooth feature work with a Garmin VIRB Ultra 30?

Per the Manufacturer the Bluetooth feature will not work with Garmin VIRB Ultra 30.

Q: Is it possible replace PMA 7000 MS to 8000 BT without wiring change?

Per PS Engineering: No. The 8000BT has a different tray and wiring from the PMA 7000.

Q: In your review of this model you state it is a slide in replacement for the Garmin 340. Is it also a slide in replacement for the GMA 345?

No, Per the installation manual P/N 11-08537 is not a slide in replacement for the GMA 345.

Q: I Have an 8000M-B. Will a 8000BT slide right in without additional wiring?

Per the manufacturer, the only difference is the bluetooth capability. The wiring connections are the same.

Q: Is this PMA 8000 BT a direct slide in replacement for the PMA 8000 D?

Per the manufacturer installation manual, no, the PMA 8000B is not a direct slide in replacement for the PMA 8000D.

Q: If the PS Engineering 8000BT is Plug N Play compatible with the Garmin GMA 340, why is a custom wiring harness required?

It is not required if you are doing a plug and play setup with the GMA340.
