This category introduces information systems available in the advanced avionics cockpit. These systems support you in following flight progress, and in avoiding terrain, traffic, and weather hazards en route. A moving map continuously displays the aircraft’s position relative to the intended route of flight, and helps you maintain the “big picture” (situational awareness) as your flight progresses. A Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) color codes surrounding terrain to make it easily apparent when terrain poses a threat. Weather systems provide in-flight access to many of the same weather products available on the ground. A fuel management system makes predictions about fuel remaining at each waypoint along the route, and helps monitor actual fuel use as your flight progresses.
