Nov 2nd Meeting Dynon Avionics The Magic Behind Glass Panels

This month we have the PRESIDENT of Dynon Avionics speaking at our Chapter 31.

Title:  The Magic Behind Your Glass Panel
Presentation Summary:Learn about the technology that makes electronic flight information systems affordable and practical for small general aviation aircraft. A better understanding of the internal workings of these instruments will illustrate how they offer reliability, affordable redundancy, and greater situational awareness than venerable analog flight instruments. Pilots of even 2-seat VFR aircraft will learn how they can improve safety and situational awareness by making use of the latest in Glass Panel avionics. Pilots of IFR aircraft will learn how to achieve more capability and greater redundancy at lower cost. Learn not only the benefits of this technology, but also some of the safety and training issues relevant in making the transition from traditional analog instruments to glass panel.
Robert Hamilton – President   Robert’s first hundred hours as PIC was in a beautifully restored J-3 cub. This was in 1973, even before the plane was an antique! After earning Electrical Engineering and MBA degrees he spent most of his career as a senior manager at Fluke Electronics making test equipment, and was too busy to do much flying.  In 2002 he decided to get back into aviation and started an aviation software company.  Joining Dynon Avionics in 2008 as the Director of Sales and Marketing, in 2012 he became President. He now flies a Glasair Sportsman he helped build at Glasair’s “Two-Week-To-Taxi” program.
