Dynon Offers Trade-In Program to SkyView HDX

Program Gives $1,000 for Eligible 10", 7" Displays

Dynon is looking to make some deals with operators with a new trade-in program that grants $1,000 for older 10"/7" SkyView Classic, Touch, or SE displays.

The program allows SkyView HDX buyers to return their older displays and get a $1,000 rebate on their new system, which could represent anywhere from 1/4 to 1/3 of the price of their new system at current prices. 10" displays nab more money, of course, with the smaller 7" ones netting only $700 back. The program is available only via Dynon, with HDX displays purchased at retail ineligible for the deal.

While the deal is an okay way to trade up in the cockpit, it will likely be worth it for those operators already eyeing an upgrade. The "HD" part of the "HDX" moniker may lead some to expect the same level of 'ultra high res HYPER PERFORMANCE' seen on many electronics today, but avionics have a very different set of requirements from a school laptop - the HDX sports a 1280x800px screen in both 10" and 7" sizes. That's plenty fine for a cockpit device, likely more crisp than some eyes can make out from the pilot's seat anyways, but something to note. Those expecting a life-changing improvement in switching from an older SkyView Classic or Touch may be nonplussed at the change, with those models sporting a 1024x600px 10" screen, or an 800x400px resolution for the smaller 7" panels. The brightness on both generations is nearly identical too, with the Classic and Touch offering the same 1,200+/1,350+ nits that modern HDX panels do. Improvements to the viewing angles and anti-reflection coating make up the big differences between them, however, with the newer LCD panels being easier to look at from off-axis seating. That's good news for trainers, who will appreciate the improvement when teaching from the right seat.

The program requires collaboration with Dynon sales staff, directly through the company.
