Late last fall, Dynon raised the bar on themselves with the
introduction of their SkyView glass cockpit system destined for the
Experimental and LSA markets. Dynon's SkyView reportedly offers
high quality glass panel avionics with 'incredibly bright' screens,
redundant systems, design flexibility, and future upgradability --
and at an affordable price (yeah, we like that part, too).
The new SkyView System 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.
A SkyView PFD System starts as low as $3,900 for a 7" display
plus ADAHRS (Air Data/Attitude/Heading Reference System) Module.
Adding an Engine Monitoring System Module adds $600 for a total of
$4,500. Adding a second, redundant ADAHRS Module is only $800.
An "Ultimate System", with dual 10" displays, redundant ADAHRS,
Engine Monitor, and backup battery is only $9,980.
A selection of SkyView Network cables, in lengths from 3' to
20', is also available to make wiring a SkyView System
uncomplicated and quick.
Dynon President John Torode notes that, "Our first EFIS products
were based on the premise that we could make high-quality avionics
available at prices all pilots could afford. I am pleased that our
team of engineers and developers can continue this tradition with a
technologically advanced system that pilots will love to fly
