uAvionics is in the process of certifying their SkyBeacon, a low cost, super simple install, ADS-B “Out”. SkyBeacon is pending certification via approved model list (AML) for STC’d installation on hundreds of aircraft makes and models. They plan to have ready for most Certified Aircraft in Q1, 2018.
Need WAAS GPS? It’s included.
They plan to sell it for $1,400 – $1,500 and it takes 5 to 10 minutes to install.
Remove the current wingtip position light and replace it with the SkyBeacon. The existing wiring and circuit breaker provide power, no airframe modifications or additional antennas are required. As an added bonus, the upgraded LED position lights deliver increased safety and night visibility at no additional cost.
Goof-Proof Configuration: Upon initial power up, the SkyBeacon mobile application will automatically configure the ICAO address, emitter type, aircraft length, width and GPS offsets by accessing the aircraft registration information. The automatic configuration further reduces installation time and the number of misconfigured systems operating in the National Airspace.
Broadcasting on the UAT/978MHz frequency, SkyBeacon offers rule compliant operation up to FL180 within the U.S. An optional matching companion position light will be available to provide ADS-B In capability.
