Pilot Speech Recognition
VoiceFlight's VFS101 is the world's first speech recognition system to be certified by the FAA for use in civilian aircraft. The system allows pilots to enter waypoints and airways into their GNS-430/530 GPS units up to ten times faster than is possible using the tedious concentric knobs.
A short video demonstration is available to illustrate the exceptional speed, accuracy, and convenience of the VFS101 system. The true measure of the system, however, is reflected in the comments provided by customers already using the system for their routine flight operations.
VFS101 Sales SuspendedJuly 22, 2014
After 16 years, Garmin has finally announced a solution to the cumbersome GNS-430/530 knob twisting that spawned the initial VoiceFlight development effort. Although we firmly believe the VFS101 provides a superior interface, we also recognize that Garmin's new Connext product line will have a significant impact on our market. As such, we have suspended all additional VFS101 sales while we reassess the situation.
