Inc. has been and continues to be committed to bringing the very best
value in audio control systems for aircraft owners.
has never been more affordable to have advanced audio control capability at your
finger tips than it is today with the new PMA8000BTi.
all of the advanced capabilities of our flagship audio panel, the new PMA8000BTi brings
was developed by the United States Air Force at the Wright Patterson Air Force
Base for use in fighter jets as well as battlefield operations.
allows the pilot to place Com 1 in the 10 O'Clock position while Com 2 will be
in the 2 O'Clock position, making it much easier to pay attention to the aircraft
radio that is important at any given time.
our exclusive license with the USAF, we are quickly adapting this technology to
new platforms. The PMA8000BT was a natural to gain this capability because of
the easy plug 'n play installation it has in common with all
PMA8000 series as well as with GARMIN's GMA340*
to see how they compare.

- Isolation modes - Pilot Isolate, All, and Crew
- un-switched inputs, with front panel un-switched input
music distribution for passengers
intercom mode with special "Alternate Intercom Mode"
front-mounted, 2.5mm multipurpose jack gives pilots unprecedented access to their audio panel,
allowing connections to cell phones, portable music devices, or audio announcements directly into the audio panel.
panel control of telephone side-tone allows the pilot to quickly turn on or
off the internal side-tone generator specifically for the telephone interface.
different configurations can be selected from the front panel, such as how the
music is distributed, the way the intercom functions, and selecting the new Monitor Function. Once a particular configuration is selected, a female voice
announces that selection and will remain in affect until the pilot changes that
selection. No audio panel from any manufacturer offers this kind of flexibility.
Monitor mode allows the pilot to designate one com radio as primary, while having
the second com as the secondary audio source. When there is radio activity on
the primary radio, the secondary com radio will temporarily mute.
The PMA8000BTi utility jack also is a convenient way to
connect your cellular
When the cellular phone is connected and the pilot pushes the "TEL" button our
"Du-tel"™ system goes online. The Pilot can make a private phone
call, everyone can be on the phone, or just the pilot and copilot can use the
telephone. This selection is made by the ISO, ALL and Crew switch.
using the phone, the pilot can receive and transmit on the selected VHF COM, for seamless integration in the cockpit. (Cellular telephone use in flight is not permitted, but remains a convenient and safe way to contact air-traffic control or a weather briefer while on the ground.)
PS Engineering's innovative Internal Recording System
(IRS™) is now
standard equipment, a $130 savings! The pilots can instantly play back radio messages, eliminating the need for the pilot to request "say again," or assure themselves that the last radio call was for them. The playback button is
on the front panel. Up to 8 messages can be recorded and played back in sequence.
The new PMA8000BTi is backward compatible
with the entire PMA8000 series as well as the GARMIN GMA340.
