Precise, High Performance Safety System Integrated with Glass Cockpit Displays Available as Factory Option on Very Fast Single-Engine Turboprop

Waco, Texas, July 28, 2014 -- FreeFlight Systems announced today that DAHER-SOCATA has selected FreeFlight Systems RA-4500 radar altimeter system as a factory standard for the TBM 900 very fast single-engine turboprop. The RA-4500 integrates with the TBM 900's cockpit displays to add precise AGL information at critical low-altitude phases of flight to the aircraft's robust set of safety and performance features.

With precision from 2,500 feet to ground level, the RA-4500 offers improved situational awareness when flying over water or rough terrain, at nighttime, in close ground proximity and in other environments lacking visual cues to the flight path. The system uses an ARINC 429 connection to integrate seamlessly with cockpit displays for altitude pre-select and altimeter readout and optional audio alerting for altitude and other aircraft conditions. Known for their precision, reliability, light weight and low cost, the RA-4500 and the RS-232-equipped RA-4000 are available for factory or retrofit installation on dozens of light general aviation aircraft worldwide. The RA-4500 also is available as a factory option on the TBM 850.
