Dynon Avionics’ new GPS Receiver/Antenna offers industry’s most affordable ADS-B Out 2020-compliant solution
The new SV-GPS-2020 GPS Receiver/Antenna from Dynon lets new and existing SkyView and Advanced AF-5000 series customers add a 2020-compliant GPS position source for ADS-B Out for only $590. As a drop-in replacement for the existing SV-GPS-250 receiver, owners of existing systems do not need to run any additional wires, coax, or install any new boxes in their aircraft.
When combined with Dynon’s SV-XPNDR-261 Mode-S transponder, SkyView and Advanced Flight Systems customers meet all the transponder and ADS-B Out requirements for $2790. Pilots can also add the SV-ADSB-470 Traffic and Weather Receiver for the best-possible situational awareness in their aircraft.

Expanded AirVenture Oshkosh Exhibit: Visit the New Dynon Builder Central Tent
Dynon Avionics features an expanded exhibit at AirVenture Oshkosh 2015. The new space at Hangar D features the outdoor Dynon Builder Central tent, where pilots can visit with Dynon’s Builder Central Team for in person flight training, technical support, and builder advice. The outdoor exhibit also features aircraft built by Dynon Avionics and Advanced Flight Systems employees.
System Software Updates to SkyView and AF-5000 Series Avionics Bring New Capabilities
Dynon is the only company that boasts two fully featured avionics platforms for sport pilots. Both receive significant free software updates this summer.
SkyView 13.0 System Software debuts support for additional languages in SkyView. German and French language packs that transform SkyView’s on-screen interface will be free downloads from the Dynon website. SkyView 13.0 also brings support for additional en-route charts for customers outside of the US. At release, partners offering charts include PocketFMS (Europe), OzRunways (Australia / New Zealand) and AvPlan EFB (Australia / New Zealand). SkyView’s synthetic vision adds predictive terrain alerts that dynamically shade terrain in yellow or red based on the aircraft’s projected flight path. And pilots who fly behind the Rotax 912 iS powerplant gain useful new information, including throttle position, cold start assistance, and Eco/Power mode indications. SkyView 13.0 will be available shortly after Oshkosh.
Advanced Flight Systems’ new 12.0 system software for the AF-5000 series has Inset Windows that allow pilots to place small windows alongside their PFD displays. Available Inset Windows include Map, Traffic, Flight Plan, Profile View, G-Meter, and Video. Another feature enhancement is an improved flight planning interface that coordinates and integrates with the Avidyne IFD540 and IFD440 navigators. AF-5000 series products also gain support for Charts, Sectionals, Flight Guide Airport diagrams provided by Seattle Avionics for only $99/year. Finally, version 12.0 supports the Wi-Fi Adapter and flight plan transfer capability with ForeFlight Mobile. AF-5000 series 12.0 software is available now.
Dynon Builder Support Team and Advanced Quick Panels Offer Complete Solutions for Homebuilders
Two complementary programs from Dynon provide the most complete avionics solutions possible for experimental aircraft homebuilders.
For homebuilders who revel in the details, the new Dynon Builder Support Team’s goal is to guide pilots from “first dream to first flight” by eliminating obstacles that builders face as they create their dream panel. Debuting at Oshkosh 2015 is the first wave of accessory products that complement their major avionics purchases. The first products to become available include an Autopilot Level Button, Dual ADAHRS Mounting Kit, AOA/Pitot/Static Installation Kit, Panel Module Faceplate Blank, ADS-B Harness, Transponder Harness, and Transponder and ADS-B Antennas.
For those who would rather leave their whole panel to the experts, Dynon’s Advanced Flight Systems division offers the Quick Panel System. Each Quick Panel is a fully-engineered and integrated panel of avionics that is professionally wired, configured, tested and ready to install. Quick Panels include all switches and harnesses, which all connect through the exclusive Advanced Control Module. For more information visit http://dynon.aero/quickpanels/.
D2 Pocket Panel Portable EFIS Priced Right for the Flying Season
The Dynon Avionics D2 Pocket Panel is the only portable, self-contained EFIS designed for use in any aircraft. Built with the same solid state attitude technology as in other Dynon products, the D2 can be a life-saver for GA pilots faced with a vacuum pump or gyro failure that would normally result in a high workload “partial-panel” scenario.
The D2 Pocket Panel Portable EFIS will be available at AirVenture Oshkosh at the lowest price ever. With a list price of $1095, pilots can expect even better pricing from dealers at the show. Stocking dealers at AirVenture include Aircraft Spruce, Pacific Coast Avionics, and Gulf Coast Avionics. For more information about the D2 can be found at http://dynon.aero/d2.
