Dynon Certified – a division of Dynon Avionics – announced a dramatic expansion of the Approved Model List for its SkyView HDX line of products. With this AML expansion, Dynon’s full suite of certified avionics is now approved for nearly 600 type certificated piston single-engine aircraft. Features approved include Primary and Backup Flight Displays, Synthetic Vision, VFR mapping, flight planning, and navigation, Engine Monitoring, Mode S Transponder with 2020-compliant ADS-B Out, ADS-B In Traffic and Weather, and Dynon’s Com Radio.
“From the moment Dynon Certified introduced its groundbreaking STC for SkyView HDX, we’ve heard from thousands of aircraft owners wishing we’d add their aircraft to the approved model list next. Now, with FAA approval for nearly 600 aircraft models, we can deliver on those requests,” said Michael Schofield, Dynon director of Marketing. SkyView HDX systems are available from Dynon’s Authorized Installation Centers and directly from Dynon. “Over 20,000 pilots already know the joy of flying behind Dynon’s affordable, safety-enhancing avionics technology. We’re excited to share that experience with even more GA fliers,” says Schofield.
Dynon says SkyView HDX is their flagship avionics suite that allows most GA pilots to comprehensively update their aging legacy avionics at an affordable price. Pilots benefit from an uncluttered panel layout that reduces workload, is intuitive, fun to fly, and enhances safety. A Dynon certified installation typically reduces aircraft weight by 50 to 80 pounds after replacing the original instruments and usually allows the removal of unreliable legacy equipment like the vacuum pump.
Base SkyView HDX configurations including Primary and Backup Flight Displays, Synthetic Vision, and VFR mapping, flight planning, and navigation start at $7630. Displays are available in both 10” and 7” variants to suit a wide variety of instrument panel sizes. Engine monitoring, additional displays, and other features and controls are optional.
The SkyView HDX system is fully integrated but modular, allowing pilots to tailor installations to their aircraft’s unique mission and needs. Additional options available for all approved aircraft include complete Engine Monitoring with CHTs, EGTs, fuel flow, fuel computer, and lean assist; Mode S Transponder with 2020-compliant ADS-B Out; ADS-B Traffic and Weather display; Com Radio; and Electronic Flight Bag features.
Dynon’s fully-integrated autopilot – featuring IFR approach capability when SkyView is integrated with a compatible navigator – is additionally available in Cessna 172 F-S and Bonanza P35-V35B models. The Bonanza approval includes yaw damper capability. Autopilot approvals for additional aircraft will be continuously released over the coming months. As of July 2019, Dynon is actively working on autopilot approvals for Bonanza 36s, Cessna 182s, and Piper Seneca models.
Pricing and Availability
Base SkyView HDX equipment configurations start at $7630. STC pricing for all aircraft models in the AML expansion is $2,000.
