$2,995.00

Built on more than two decades of avionics experience, and using the industry’s only AHRS that can operate unaided, the Sport 10.1 provides primary flight functions, moving maps and engine pages which can be driven by any GRT EIS engine monitor. The Sport 10.1 even includes synthetic approach to any runway, and depiction of obstacles on the PFD screen.

Synthetic Vision

The optional synthetic vision, with its 10 mile range, provides intuitive terrain awareness. This awareness is essential whey flying in mountainous areas, and also creates a natural sense of height above the ground, location, and direction of flight. 3-D way-points, obstacles and runways, make navigation simple and help protect you from the threat of towers.

Split-Screens

Ten split-screen combinations are included, combining two or three views into one screen of the PFD, map and HSI, and engine monitoring. Information is clearly presented, making it practical to fly with a single screen and rarely touch a button. For dual screen installations the split-screens provide a single-screen reversionary mode suitable for IFR flight.

VFR Friendly

Often the days we fly do not require constant monitoring of the airplanes attitude. Airspeed, altimeter, and a map are all we need, with the PFD attitude to back us up if conditions change. We love those days and so does the Sport 10.1. That is why we allow you to show airspeed and altimeter tapes on your moving map. The Sport 10.1 rounds everything out with wind and destination information.

The green arc shows where the airplane will be when it reaches a pre-selected altitude (ground level in this case). Extended centerlines make it easy to line up on the correct runway, and is essential at night.

Obstacle Alerting

The greatest value of obstacle alerting occurs when you find yourself forced to fly under an overcast in less than desirable visibility. At times like this, it must be effortless to understand such threats. That is why we show your threats on the PFD and not just the map. We show you the threat in the exact place you will be looking-the PFD. They appear in the same location out the window as they appear on the screen. Simple, and potentially life saving.

Situational Awareness without Synthetic Vision

Deferring synthetic vision does not mean you are sacrificing situational awareness. The Sport 10.1 shows obstacles and runways on the screen as they appear out the window, even without the synthetic vision. The highway-in-the-sky guidance for the synthetic approach still delivers the sense of reality necessary to make any approach easier and more precise.

Display ADS-B Traffic and Weather

Include the ADS-B Option, and the Sport 10.1 is ready to GRT EIS to display weather and traffic from a large variety of ADS-B receivers, including the popular Stratux/Raspberry Pi based receivers. Weather displays include weather radar overlay, as well as metars, temporary flight restrictions, and other weather functions as they become part of the ADS-B system. Traffic, with voice alerts, is displayed on the map, and on the primary flight display, just as the airplane appears out the window.

Angle-of-Attack (AOA) Sensing/Stall Warning

Angle-of-attack sensing is now available on the Sport 10.1. Sensing is via a two-port 45 degree pitot tube, such as those commonly available from a variety of manufacturers, or using a probe fashioned by the builder. This method has no moving parts, and allows the use of heated pitot tubes that preserve the stall warning function even in the presence of icing.

The GRT Avionics AOA function drives on-screen AOA symbology that shows too fast/too slow/optimal approach speeds, as well as stall warning. An audio output provides an approaching stall warning annunciation (a pulsating tone that varies with proximity to the stall warning angle) and a solid tone indicating stall is imminent.

Do you prefer a six-pack view?

If you’re more comfortable behind the traditional “six-pack” of instruments we’ve got a PFD view just for you! You can even adjust the shading behind the instruments.

Engine Performance Monitoring

Having produced the EIS engine monitor for over 20 years, we’ve accumulated a great deal of personal and customer engine monitoring experience. From this came such exclusive features as the exhaust gas temperature (EGT) time history. With a simple graph of the last two minutes of all EGTs, our engine monitoring system makes it effortless to distinguish between engine problems affecting one cylinder, or the entire engine. This distinction could be essential when making decisions in response to engine problems, especially at critical times such as initial climb out. We find it so useful that we never takeoff without it displayed, and we recommend you don’t either.
As a practical matter, the EGT Time history is our favorite way to get reassurance of normal engine operation. Now whenever you fly over water, or at night, you will have the confidence that only comes from seeing a history of steady EGTs. It reduces anxiety and adds confidence to any flight.

CHT time history proves useful by making the trend obvious. This is especially useful in high-performance airplanes, such as RV’s, Lancairs and all pushers, where engine cooling can require some pilot technique to manage. It leaves no doubt which way temperatures are headed.

When it comes to flying economically, the specific fuel consumption (SFC) display is just the ticket. Its measure of engine efficiency confirms when you have leaned properly and tells you when you need to lean again. Without SFC, it is nearly impossible to know if re-leaning is required due to changing conditions. Next to the EGT time history, this is one of our favorite engine monitoring features. It literally pays for itself. Miles per gallon through the air makes it easy to detect changes in efficiency of your airplane due modifications for drag reduction or if you just forgot to fully retract your flaps. Miles per gallon over the ground lets you optimize your economy while accounting for the wind.

Engine Data with a Bonus

Engine data is provided to the Sport 10.1 via the Engine Information System (EIS). The EIS is a complete instrument with a display and user-interface. Models are available for practically every engine, from 2-strokes, 4-strokes, turboprops and turbines-we have instrumented it. The EIS may be remotely mounted, just like any data collection device, but it can also be mounted in the instrument panel as a primary or backup display of engine data. In tandem seating airplanes it can be used as an instrument for the rear seat. Engine limits can be set in the EIS and can be used to drive its own warning light, even when remotely mounted.

Simple Operation

Simplified screen layouts and more buttons also allow for simplified operation. Menus are practically identical for the PFD and map screens. New to the EFIS and not sure what a softkey does? Go ahead-press it! Every softkey is labeled and the Sport 10.1 shows you the options available before it does anything. Pressing the same softkey again exits without action. Always find your way back to the main screen view with the blue “HOME” softkey. Color coding and “hold for shortcut” features further streamline operation. Simple, effective and efficient.

GRT Safe-Touch – Your PFD is now an Autopilot Mode Control Panel!

GRT Safe-touch option provides touch screen interaction without the risk of inadvertent activation. We use the simplicity of the touch screen for making selections, such as choosing the leg of the flight plan to be modified, with the positive action of a softkey press before activating the selection. Simple and secure, even in turbulence, nothing happens until you confirm or cancel and touch screen edits with a softkey press.

Touch screen functions will be added over time, but the first release will include at least the following:

Shortcut to setting of autopilot airspeed/vertical speed/altitude targets. Just touch the airspeed/altimeter, or vertical speed display and select the target with the knob. Your PFD becomes an autopilot mode control panel.

  • Flight plan editing, including moving, deleting,
    and inserting waypoints.
  • Flight plan “rubber-banding”
  • Direct-to waypoint selection
  • Airport/navaid details selection
  • Map Slewing

The Source of the Attitude

The integrity of an EFIS is dependent on the integrity of the attitude data that drives it. GRT Avionics has always lead the way with the only AHRS in the industry that can operate without airspeed or GPS aiding. The same adaptive AHRS that is used in our stand-alone AHRS, is built into the Sport 10.1.

The Connectivity You Need

Six serial ports in and out, and dual USB port,s allow for great flexibility within your panel design

Autopilot Ready

The Sport 10.1 includes full autopilot functionality. Just add GRT servos and you are on your way to a fully automated cockpit. Like all GRT EFIS systems, it can also control an external stand-alone autopilot. Even without servos, all autopilot functions are available to drive the flight director, giving you a single cue to follow to control attitude and navigation, greatly improving accuracy while reducing workload. Read more here.

Already own an autopilot? Just wire it to the Sport 10.1 and it will couple it to all your navigation sources.

Heads-Up Display Capable

A heads up display can now be part your your GRT Avionics equipped airplane for as little as $300. Our pursuit of heads up display technology has led to support for the Hudly automotive after-market heads up display. Graphics optimizations in the GRT remote app, combined with the impressive readability and value of the Hudly have resulted in the first practical heads up display for experimental and general aviation (certified) airplanes.

  • Aircraft mounted heads-up display
  • Sunlight Readable Color Symbology
  • Primary Flight Data
  • Flight Director and HSI Guidance
  • Lateral/Vertical Deviation for Approach
  • Stall warning and all other features of GRT Remote app

Audio Alerts

Voice alerts are provided for critical engine and flight conditions, as well as altitude call outs. System changes, such as autopilot disconnect and way-point passage are also annunciated. Angle-of-attack audio utilizes an attention-getting beeping tone that increases in urgency as your approach stall. You can even use your own audio recordings for your alerts.

Angle of Attack Sensing / Stall Warning

The GRT Avionics AOA function drives on-screen AOA symbology that shows too fast/too slow/optimal approach speeds, as well as stall warning. In addition, an audio output is providing an approaching stall warning annunciation (a pulsating tone that varies with proximity to the stall warning angle) and a solid tone indicating stall is imminent.

Sensing is via a two-port 45 degree pitot tube, such as those commonly available from a variety of manufacturers, or using a probe fashioned by the builder. This method has no moving parts, and allows the use of heated pitot tubes that preserve the stall warning function even in the presence of icing.

Control Radios and Flight Plans with Your Android Phone or Tablet

Install an optional Bluetooth dongle and connect with your Android phone or tablet using our GRT REMOTE App for Android. Fully control your connected radios, create & edit active flight plans and view the flight instruments all on your Android tablet or phone–perfect for the backseat co-pilot!
