Becker Avionics and Netherland based PocketFMS Foundation have signed a cooperation Agreement for joint business activities in design, development, certification, production, sales and marketing of moving map products with applications for the general aviation market.

PocketFMS has vast experience in the development, sales and support of software for moving map and flight planning software for personal computers and handheld products, including navigation database, terrain data, streets, cities, navigation aids, airports and weather data.

Becker Avionics is known for the design, development, certification and production of robust airborne computers, aircraft radios and transponders, digital audio systems, and ground ATC radios.

Becker Avionics’ upcoming new multi-function display (MFD) will includes a state-of-the-art moving map and flight planning solution for VFR aircraft. This new MFD is intended for fixed cockpit installations based on a (E)TSO-C113. It can be installed in any type and class of Part 23 aircraft and Part 27 helicopters.

“We want to offer customers an easy to use, reliable and affordable moving map system product” Mr. Roland Becker, President of the Becker Avionics Group stated, “we also wanted to develop new solutions for a moving map data base and flight planning option” he continued, adding that “PocketFMS fits perfectly into our advanced product development goals due to their database concept, which allows access to a world-wide navigation database for a reasonable price”. “We have been looking closely at the PocketFMS product for quite a while,” Mr. Becker continued, “PocketFMS has achieved significant integration and functionality in their software and database design which we feel is more advanced than found in any other product on the market”.

PocketFMS supplies its flight planning software, including the flight map database which can be downloaded from its homepage. The FIR map selection and flight planning can be done easily prior to flight on any computer or laptop.
