Hi,

It's great that there are GeoRef Charts and Airport Diagrams available for AFS in both the US and Australia/New Zeeland, but what about Europe ? Is there anything available at all ?

Not yet, Seattle Avionics was looking into supplying European data.

Shawn, this is the answer I got from Seattle Avionics:

"We provide European aeronautical data to many avionics manufacturers. Its up to the manufacturer to choose which regions are supported. Please fell free to share your thought with AFS."

I guess this is a B2B discussion to be had between AFS and SA on this topic if they are able to provide European aeronautical data.

It would really take AFS to a higher level if we had VFR mapping, airport diagrams, IFR plates etc which is already available for US customers.

I'm not sure how to diplomatically reply to this. The AF-5000 displays use data provided by the Seattle Avionics Data Manager. If the Data Manager supplied data for the EU then you would be able to load it. Just the same as Australia is provided by avplan-efb.

thanks Shawn... Still think it's a B2B discussion, but I will reach out to the Seattle Avionics and ask them what can be done... As said it would make the AFS EFIS brilliant for European customers.

We are close to releasing a new software release that makes the AF-5000 EFIS work with all the same chart data that the Dynon Skyview can use for Europe.
