Becker Avionics Partners with BendixKing and AvPanels for Innovation

R44 Glass Cockpit

March 10, 2022 - Miramar, FL - BendixKing from Pheonix, Arizona, Becker Avionics from Miramar Florida, and AvPanels from Ft. Worth Texas are pleased to announce the cooperative development of a new glass panel cockpit for the Robinson R44 helicopter to be featured in the booth of Helicopter Institute at Heli-Expo 2022 in Dallas Texas.

The new cockpit will center around the BendixKing AeroVue Touch.  AeroVue Touch will be installed as the primary flight display.  The 10.1” display provides the highest screen resolution in the industry. The display can be used as full screen primary flight display or a split screen primary and multifunction display.

“We are very excited to be working with Becker Avionics and AvPanels to bring this state-of-the-art glass panel to a wider helicopter market”, said Tom Neumann, president of BendixKing.  “We’ve always known that this was a great product, and we are proud to partner with the AvPanels team to get this product out to those customers that will greatly benefit from the product’s amazing capabilities.”

The first set of aircraft to receive the new cockpit will be placed into service at the training fleet for Embry Riddle in Prescott Arizona.  Randy Rowles, president of Helicopter Institute said, “We couldn’t be more excited to have a product such as that available from BendixKing in our aircraft providing all levels of training to the students at Embry Riddle”.  Randy continued “This will bring the ultra-modern glass cockpit to our students and help us completely prepare them for their professional careers in the helicopter industry”.

Becker Avionics president Luis Gonzalez is happy to be a part of the team.  “With the 3D spatial audio and digital clear communication provided by the AMU6500 we know this will be the ultimate solution to those students and operators who demand the best and want to prepare for the future.”

The BendixKing, Becker and AvPanels team invite you to stop by the Helicopter Institute booth #2611 or the Becker Avionics booth #4112 at HAI.  The AvPanels equipped R44 will be in the Helicopter Institute booth on display and will have members the from BendixKing, AvPanels, and Helicopter Institute to answer any questions.  The Becker Avionics booth will have a mockup of an H125 cockpit on display with the BendixKing/Becker solution and will have members from BendixKing, Becker and AvPanels ready to assist you.
