The Best Map Available

The FlightMax EX5000 is the most advanced, yet easy-to-use large-format MFD available for general aviation aircraft. All special-use and class airspaces are color-keyed for added clarity, and can be displayed at the same time as NEXRAD or weather radar data for a more complete picture. Full overlay capability allows you to add or remove traffic, lightning, and radar, with 180-degree forward view and 360-degree center view maps.


With its complete terrain and water base map, the FlightMax EX5000 provides a clear presentation of terrain hazards. Avidyne’s exclusive terrain scale shows the altitude of the highest terrain in the displayed area. The FlightMax EX5000 also interfaces with the popular EGPWS/ TAWS sensors for added safety, making it the most versatile multifunction display available.

The Easiest To Use

The FlightMax EX5000’s user interface dramatically improves your ability to access and display critical flight data. This design philosophy keeps operation simple and consistent by allowing you to select and display what you need on a single easy-to-interpret integrated moving map. The FlightMax EX5000 can also act as the on-board radar display, providing easy access to radar modes, tilt control, and bearing adjust.

With the FlightMax EX5000’s “map-centric” operation, you can display a moving map of your flight plan along with radar and datalink weather. And special-use airspace. And traffic. And terrain. And lightning. Without ever leaving the map page. It’s the only large-format display that provides the complete picture and it’s the easiest to use.

Curved Paths

The FlightMaxEX5000’s large display shows easy-to-see curved flight path segments such as DME arcs, holding patterns and procedure turns, overlaid with traffic, terrain, weather, airports and runway diagrams, taking the guess work out of shooting instrument approaches.
