A Smart Electrical System for GA

Dr. Seeley made this available to Green Flight Challenge competitors. As a follow-on to your ideas for simplifying pilot licenses that I presented at Electric Aircraft Symposium III: Here is a link to a very encouraging development debuted at Sun & Fun: A comprehensive, integrated, smart electrical system for GA from Marc Ausman at Vertical Power Corporation ($1500 – $12,000). This looks like a very helpful reducer of pilot workload to help make flying simpler. The more up-scale versions offer redundancy and this technology should save weight and free up panel space as well. Also, the array of COTS eCFI/flight control options from MGL Avionics is very impressive too. Sure wish I had time to build a homebuilt aircraft with today’s technology!
