The Primus Apex® system core (computing and graphics generation) is based on Honeywell’s Primus Epic® system with “designed-to-cost” point products such as radios and sensors. This approach enables high-end business jet functionality at an affordable price for turboprops and light to mid-size business jets.
Primus Apex’s synthetic vision system, digital charts and maps, coupled vertical navigation, and graphical flight planning provide exceptional safety and situational awareness. Its unsurpassed graphical displays in the ergonomic and stylish cockpit provide the ultimate flight experience and capabilities for pilots.
Primus Apex consists of a base system with unique options which provide new capabilities and the flexibility to effectively meet new airspace mandates.
Two primary flight displays (PFD) and one or two multifunction displays (MFD) featuring crystal-clear, high-resolution liquid crystal displays and wide viewing capability allowing cross-cockpit scanning.
