Classic Aero-TV: The Cost-Effective Airtext LT - Aviation's Ultimate Messenger??

From 2018 (YouTube Version): A Smaller, Lighter, And Lower Cost Texting Product That Is Portable

Send Solutions introduced a new texting product that is smaller, lighter, lower cost, and portable at AirVenture this year... the AirtextLT.

With the approaching ADS-B mandate deadline at the end of 2019 Send Solutions found that avionics facilities were limited in installation man-hours and could not fit Airtext installations into their schedule. By having a portable solution the company says they have solved the temporary inconvenience of installation availability and still provide the low-cost connectivity to the customer.

The AirtextLT is half the the size, half the weight and is half the price of it’s certified big-brother - Airtext.  The price is $4950.  Data Service is $300 per year which includes the first 500 text messages. Additional messages are 5 cents per message.

AirtextLT is a complete portable system which includes a small, 1.5” GPS-type antenna that is placed on the glareshield and DC or AC converter. It functions as well as the certified system. All features are available, including Digital ATIS and FBOlink. If there is an existing iridium antenna on the airplane that provides even better signal strength, AirtextLT can connect to that.

AirtextLT is available through Sporty’s, authorized avionics dealers, and from Send Solutions direct.
