MK XXII Helicopter Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS)

The state-of-the-art MK XXII EGPWS is a full-featured system with highly advanced safety functions for IFR-equipped helicopters with a radio altimeter. This system exceeds the FAA TSO-C151b Class A requirements. It includes features such as excessive descent rate, excessive closure rate, descent after takeoff, insufficient terrain clearance, descent below glideslope, and altitude callouts for excessive bank angle, tail strike protection, and autorotation.
