fls microjet features fls microjet features - BD
A key feature of the FLS Microjet is its
avionics package and solid state
electrical system. Our effort in
integration design and component
selection has paid off by providing
extensive capabilities in a clean
format, thus enhancing cockpit
resource management. The various
avionic components were selected for
size, reliability, operating features, and
systems integration along strict design
and performance criteria. The result
rivals capabilities found in commercial
All Digital Dual EFIS Display Instrument Panel
Following a multi-year development and modernization program, we are proud to
introduce our next generation FLS Microjet. In this development effort, objectives
focused on providing a high level of quality, with an emphasis on safety and
reliability. This newest version of the FLS Microjet has come a long way, as
evidenced by a comprehensive high-end features list. Highlights include a
modern turbine powerplant system, all glass panel, solid state electrical system,
HOTAS controls, GPS navigation, systems redundancy, and more. The following
lists highlight many of the features included with the all new FLS Microjet.

The Quantum Turbine Powerplant System
for the FLS Microjet was designed around
the PBS TJ100 turbojet engine. This hightech engine features a compact and
lightweight design, a modern FADEC
control, and a high thrust to weight ratio.
BD-Micro worked directly with PBS to further
develop several engine safety features for
Turbine Oil Type
Jet Fuel Type
Jet A, JP4
In developing the Quantum Turbine
Powerplant System for the FLS Microjet,
primary goals were safety and reliability. To
that end, extensive resources were
dedicated to design and testing. Several
rounds of revision were completed before
we were satisfied with the results.
