ILS Navigation (Localizer)

Course deviation based on the received localizer singal can be clearly viewed on the CDI display. The superior visibility aids in the landing approach during bad weather conditions.

VOR Navigation

When the FTA-550L receives a VOR signal, the display automatically switches to the NAV band screen and shows the CDI based on the received signal.

Easy to operate menu system

The FTA-550L comes configured with an easy to operate icon driven menu system. The displays and menu settings are logically configured for a more intuitive user interface.

Huge Dot Matrix LCD display

The FTA-550L features a huge 1.7" x 1.7" full dot matrix LCD display with full backlight and dimmer. The high resolution display makes it easier to view all the great features the FTA-550L has to offer.

200 Channel Memory band

The FTA-550L can store up to 200 Memory channels for quick and easy retrieval. With the capability of using up to 15 Alphanumeric characters per name the FTA-550L allows for a better channel description.

PC Programmable

The FTA-550L channel configurations can easily be reprogrammed using the supplied USB programming cable and the optional YCE01 programming software.
