Aera 660 – An Old Partner Made New Again


It’s sometimes difficult to imagine what aircraft navigation was like decades ago. With little more than paper sectionals and charts, a stopwatch in hand, and eyes peeled in search of landmarks below, it’s hard to think that flying could have been a relaxing activity. Fortunately, the introduction of GPS marked the beginning of an industry-wide change in the way we navigate from point A to point B. Today with our aera 660, the trusty portable navigator – a pilot’s reliable friend – gets new life in a sleek, touchscreen package.

The technological revolution has led to the introduction of the popular pilot apps like Garmin Pilot on our mobile devices. These applications are fantastic for flight planning as well as navigating and have proved to be a cost-effective tool for the cockpit. However, for those who are hesitant to incorporate a tablet into the cockpit, the aera 660 is a nice step in between tablet navigation and certified avionics.

Our aera 660 was designed specifically for the cockpit. In a product that’s slightly larger than many smartphones, with a 5-inch sunlight-readable touchscreen display, the aera 660 provides pilots with a dedicated, reliable and convenient portable aviation navigation system. With advanced connectivity options, including ADS-B, back-up attitude capability and synthetic vision from our GTX 345 all-in-one transponder, Flight Stream 210 or GDL 39 3D, the aera 660 can provide more than just a line on the map.

Keep your peace of mind in the cockpit with our aera 600 and simply enjoy the ride. Perfect as a primary navigation tool or even as a solid back-up, it’s a great for any pilot’s flight bag.
