Aero-TV: Dynon Embraces ADS-B – Equipping SkyView For Tomorrow’s SportPlanes

LSA Capabilities Continue To Evolve... and Impress

You have to be impressed with the state of the art as far as the LSA market is concerned. At this time, one would be hard pressed to name a serious GA avionics technology that isn't available in some form for the Light-Sport market... and at prices that will raise eyebrows and lighten pocketbooks.

One of the latest updates to Dynon's impressive SkyView offerings is the advent of ADS-B information and technology. The most recent update of SkyView now offers (when coupled with the SV-ADSB-470 UAT Band Traffic and Weather Receiver), highly desired weather features for US customers. SkyView's moving map can now display weather and TFRs in addition to the terrain, airspace and base map/cultural data it already provides, all while remaining clear and easy to understand thanks to SkyView smart map layering system. Weather can be displayed graphically and textually on SkyView, and includes NEXRAD radar, METARs, and TAFS. Additionally, airport weather data can be selected based on nearest or by airport identifier. All information displayed is free, with no monthly subscriptions, based on the FAA’s ADS-B broadcast in the US.

When the SV-ADSB-470 is combined with either of Dynon’s existing SV-XPNDR-26X Mode-S transponder modules, SkyView users have access to reliable, accurate traffic data. Nearby traffic threats can generate audio alerts to notify the pilot of possible collisions, even when the pilot us not actively looking at the display. Note that because the FAA's ADS-B system requires the aircraft to be ADS-B OUT equipped before traffic information is provided, Dynon now includes a software update to the existing transponder which updates it to the TSO C166B that enables it to work with the latest implementation of the FAA's ADS-B system. This is important, as the transponder-based ADS-B Out transmission wakes up the ADS-B ground stations and causes them to send a traffic portrait that includes all known ADS-B targets around the SkyView-equipped aircraft. This update also makes the SV-XPNDR-261 the only transponder on the experimental market that will be able to be used to satisfy the FAA's "2020 ADS-B Out mandate" (the SV-XPNDR-262, because of its lower output power class rating, won't be able to be used for 2020 mandate compliance). This transponder update also has the added feature of automatic ALT/GND mode changes based on air data and GPS information.
