A the 2011 US Sport Aviation Expo, ANN had a heck of a good time
catching up with some of the stalwarts of the sport aviation
business... folks who have become dependable parts of the LSA
landscape. In the case of Dynon Avionics, it was a good chance to
catch up and get updated on one of the few, true success stories in
the LSA game.
Among the items we've been keeping an eye on is Dynon's new
SkyView System -- which offers a Primary Flight Display, Synthetic
Vision, and a terrain map as standard features.
An Engine Monitoring System Module and Engine Sensor kit can be
added to make a complete Glass Panel System. Integrated autopilot
software, to be added in the near future, also comes standard and
will require only the addition of two servos, roll and pitch, to
make a complete two-axis autopilot system.
Dynon Avionics recently added Version 3.0 firmware for SkyView.
This release allows SkyView to utilize Jeppesen NavData as part of
its GPS navigation software.
Other new features include greatly enhanced airport data
viewable through an intuitive user interface, airspace altitudes, a
larger HSI display, and a pilot selectable G-Meter.
