The Aviation Consumer, Product of the Year. JPI’s FS-450 is top choice because it has all the options you need for fuel management.
Available for piston engines. TSO'd for accuracy the Fuel Scan-450 acts as your personal flight engineer: always there, working in the background, constantly monitoring you fuel consumption while you concentrate on flying the aircraft.

Connected to Honeywell Skymap IIIC, the FS-450 happily winked and blinked its way through its information inventory.
