Model: B-FL3Brand: MGL Avionics
The FLIGHT-3 is an 80 mm Primary Flight Instrument.
The Blaze FLIGHT-3 is a compact, multi-function, complete primary flight system intended as a main flight instrument in smaller aircraft, or as a backup / secondary flight instrument in larger aircraft. This 3 1/8” (80 mm) instrument provides a range of flight functions, such as altimeter, airspeed indicator, VSI indicator, fuel level, fuel flow, RPM, volts, current display and many more. The FLIGHT-3's light weight, small size and high level of functionality makes it an excellent choice for many applications.
The FLIGHT-3 makes an ideal companion to the Blaze EMS-2 universal engine monitor, for a compact, low cost, yet highly functional and complete cockpit solution.
The FLIGHT-3 has the following features:
The altimeter contains an internal high accuracy 24 bit digital altitude sensor which calculates altitude from -1500 ft up to a maximum of +35000 ft. The FLIGHT-3 outputs various formatted RS232 serial data protocols compatible with serial input transponders such as that from Garmin, Magellan, Northstar, Trimble, Microair etc. The altimeter can display altitude in feet or metres and local pressure can be set in millibars or inches of mercury. The FLIGHT-3 also provides a parallel Gillham code interface when used in conjunction with the MGL Avionics CNV-ALT.
ASI (Airspeed Indicator)
Airspeed can be indicated in statute miles per hour (mph), kilometres per hour (km/h) or nautical miles per hour (kts). The FLIGHT-3 also provides a programmable Vs and Vne airspeed alarm output. ASI sensitivity can be calibrated by the user to cater for errors caused by pitot tube placement.
The FLIGHT-3 can measure airspeed from 20mph to 250mph and the FLIGHT-3HS (High Speed version) can measure airspeed from 20mph to 320mph. Both are well suited to slower aircraft due to very good sensitivity and linearity at low air speeds.
VSI (Vertical speed indicator)
The VSI indicator can be displayed in either feet/minute (ft/min) or metres/second (m/s). The VSI can be calibrated by the user once the instrument has been installed in the aircraft.
The FLIGHT-3 can measure engine and/or rotor RPM.
Full functionality is available with a fuel flow and level sender or only with a fuel flow sender using calculated fuel levels based on fuel usage. Fuel injector systems are also supported. Standard automotive fuel level senders can be used, even with odd shaped tanks due to a comprehensive, multi-point calibration system. Most fuel flow senders can be used as the K-factor of the sender can be entered into the system for simple calibration. Fuel flow can be displayed in l/Hr or in G/hr.
MGL Avionics supplies a lightweight dual range fuel flow sender that is ideally suited for the FLIGHT-3. Fuel flow senders from other manufactures are equally suitable.
In addition, the FLIGHT-3 can use the actual ground speed from a RS232 NMEA enabled GPS receiver to determine fuel range.
Local Time display
The FLIGHT-3 is capable of displaying time to facilitate ordinary ATC time reporting. Time is maintained by an internal lithium battery which can be replaced by the user.
Battery Voltage, *Current and Charge display
The FLIGHT-3 can be used to monitor your aircraft’s battery power supply. The FLIGHT-3 is very useful in determining your battery’s health, charging status, as well as the current load consumption of your aircraft. The FLIGHT-3 can be used in both 12V and 24V aircraft and can measure voltages up to 30V DC.
The FLIGHT-3 uses the MGL Avionics Magnetic Closed Loop Current Sensor to measure the aircraft's current load. The FLIGHT-3 contains a programmable low/high voltage alarm to automatically detect bad batteries and alternator failures.
OAT can be shown in either degrees Celsius or degrees Fahrenheit. The FLIGHT-3 also contains a programmable low/high OAT alarm.
Flight Timer & Flight log
The FLIGHT-3 provides a 50 entry flight log that stores the start time and duration of each of the last 50 flights. The flight timer can either be started using the front push button or automatically from RPM and airspeed.
