Flight Design Adds Dynon ADS-B

Completes First Installation Of Dynon System In CTLSi

Flight Design recently completed the first installation a full ASD-B system in one of its brand-new CTLSi models, which are powered by the fuel injected Rotax 912 iS engine. The newly equipped aircraft made its debut at the 2013 U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring Florida. “We were pleased to work with one of our newest dealers to add new ADB-S equipment into our CTLSi,” said Flight Design CEO Matthias Betsch. “Brian Boucher’s Florida Light-Sport Aviation company based at the Spruce Creek Fly-in near Daytona Beach, Florida has the first of what is sure to be many such installations.”

ADS-B equipment for the installation is built by Dynon Avionics, a Flight Design supply partner that also builds the SkyView digital avionics suite used in the CTLSi models. A separate hardware module was added behind the 10-inch screen and connected to an antenna on the lower fuselage of the aircraft.

An ADS-B equipped aircraft like CTLSi uses an ordinary GPS receiver to determine a precise position from GPS satellites and then combines that position with other aircraft information such as speed, heading, and altitude. This information is broadcast to other ADS-B capable aircraft and to ADS-B ground, or satellite communications transceivers which then relay the aircraft's position and additional information to Air Traffic Control centers in real time.

Dynon Avionics says the new SV-ADSB-470 unit offers subscription-free weather displayed on SkyView, including NEXRAD radar, METARs and TAFS. Airport weather data can be displayed for nearest airports or for a specific airport identifier. ADS-B receives TIS-B traffic information with precise location, altitude, speed, and direction from broadcast from other ADS-B equipped aircraft along with data broadcast from ADS-B ground stations, presuming the aircraft is equipped with the correct transponder. Additionally TFRs can be shown even though these are temporarily restricted areas.

“We were pleased to show a CTLSi equipped with ADS-Dynon’s new unit at the Sebring U.S. Sport Aviation Expo 2013,” said Flight Design USA president Tom Peghiny. “We highlighted this equipment in our exhibit at the event and had staff and dealers to explain the value in this new equipment. Both our new Florida dealerships will also be represented at the Sun ‘n Fun show in April along with dealers from around the country."
