Flytec 6030

The 6030 is the flagship of soaring instruments. It has all of the advanced flight and navigation functions of the 6020 but also adds a high-resolution display, internal pitot airspeed sensor, McCready speed-to-fly and final glide, sophisticated route setup and real-time optimization.

The 6030 is the flagship of soaring instruments.  It has all of the advanced flight and navigation functions of the 6020 but also adds a high-resolution display, internal pitot airspeed sensor, McCready speed-to-fly and final glide, sophisticated route setup and real-time optimization.

Dual, user-replaceable, rechargeable battery banks should virtually eliminate flights being cut short due to dead batteries. 

Like the 6020, the 6030 is designed for the serious XC and competition flying yet its ergonomics and ease-of-use make it a popular choice even for entry–level pilots. 

The 6030’s sophisticated flight recording make it very popular with aerospace parachute performance testing.
