Butterfly Vario - Now the Air Glide System

The Butterfly Vario has been superseded by the new Air Glide modular system.  What was the Butterfly vario is now composed of the Air Glide Sensor Unit (ISU) and the Air Glide Display S.  The Sensor unit is the heart of the system and contains all sensors and an IGC certified flight recorder. It computes vario, airspeed, instantaneous wind, air mass movement, GPS-Position, magnetic heading and attitude.

The relative air-mass movement around the aircraft is measured in real time through the use of 14 separate sensors instead of the standard practice to use only pressure sensors to sense aircraft/airmass movement. Independant of flight direction the pilot sees real time air-mass and wind data updated repeatedly every second.

Air Connect

Is an interface module that connects via a DB9 serial port to your flight computer and then wirelessly sends the air data from the flight computer to your iphone or other mobile device by creating an IEEE802.11 b/g WiFi® network and transmits RS232 data via the TCP/IP protocol.

air connect

It features one central Power/Data connector (D-SUB 9) and a standard SMA antenna connector including a small quarter-wave antenna. Butterfly connect is supplied by a DC source in the range of 8V to 32V and typically consumes less than 100mA.
