At AirVenture Oshkosh 2014, Dynon Avionics announces an 8.33 kHz COM radio, video input, and version 11 software for its SkyView glass panel system. Also, Advanced Flight Systems – part of the Dynon family since July 2013 – announces its new Quick Panel System. Available in both VFR and IFR versions with either Dynon or AFS displays, an AFS Quick Panel allows builders to install a turnkey avionics solution in their aircraft, saving thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours of build time.

If you'll be at AirVenture this week, make sure you pull a rivet on the One Week Wonder Zenith CH 750 which will be built during AirVenture! The One Week Wonder will feature a complete SkyView Touch system.

8.33 kHz COM Radio

Dynon’s SV-COM-C25 COM radio reinvented the pilot interface for radios. With dedicated buttons for tuning tower, ground, weather, and ATC frequencies, it saves time and reduces pilot workload. The SV-COM-X83 brings the same capability to Europe with 8.33 kHz frequency spacing. The 8.33 kHz transceiver module is TSO’d. The SV-COM-X83 comes in horizontal and vertical versions and will be available in August for a list price of $2195.


Video Input

With SkyView 11 Software, all SkyView Touch and new SkyView screens can display video in both full-screen and split-screen formats when equipped with a Video Input Adapter. Video sources connect via s-video or composite input. Both NTSC and PAL formats are supported for worldwide compatibility. The Video Input Adapter for SkyView will be available in August for $195.

Note: The Video Input Adapter requires an SV-D1000 / SV-D1000T with s/n 6000+ or SV-D700 with s/n 4000+

SkyView 11 Software

With over 60 new features and improvements in SkyView 11, Dynon continues to advance SkyView’s state-of-the-art capabilities. As always, SkyView 11 software is available as a free update for all SkyView customers. Just a few of the new features in SkyView 11 are: 

  • A pilot-selectable wide field of view mode for synthetic vision.
  • Color-coded airport weather icons on the map when equipped with an SV-ADSB-470 module.
  • The ability to synchronize the altimeter setting to the nearest station’s METAR report (requires SV-ADSB-470).
  • Support for third-party 8.33 kHz COM radios. Supported radios include the f.u.n.k.e. ATR833, Garmin GTR 225 & GNC 255, and Trig TY91/92.
  • Decluttering of airspaces outside of a pilot-specified altitude band above and below the aircraft.

Quick Panel Systems by Advanced Flight Systems

Advanced Flight Systems announces its Quick Panel System, a line of complete pre-built avionics panels. Starting with VFR and IFR-equipped panels for the RV-7/9, installing an aircraft’s modern avionics and electrical system is no longer a time consuming, complicated and frustrating experience. Each system includes a well-engineered instrument panel that is professionally wired, configured, tested and ready to install.  All avionics, including the aircraft’s autopilot servos, trim servos and lights are all cleanly wired to the new Advanced Control Module.

The first Advanced Quick Panels are available for purchase at Oshkosh for only $19,995. Learn more about the Quick Panel System at the AFS website.
