Default AFS adds to their line

I just saw this on AFS's website! A NEW 12.1" EFIS. Looks like it is called a 5800.

My 5600s are obsolete and I haven't even screwed them into the panel! At least I have solace in knowing that the new 5800s wont even fit in my panel it's that big!

The AF-5500, AF-5600, and AF-5800 are all identical other than the size of the screen. They all have the same resolution screen and run the same software.

With the rate this industry goes, pretty soon we will see a 55" flat screen in the front of us

I'm not even bothering with windows anymore. I'm just going to mount large flat panel screens up to either display instrumentation or outside camera views.

Default No windows here either

That way I don't have to worry about Loard. Hysol, Proseal, or what adheasive to use. Just going to fiberglass over all the window openings and put flat panels everywhere.

I'm waiting for the panel-shaped capacitive multi-touch touchscreen.
