Dynon Avionics’ breakthrough SV-GPS-2020 is now shipping. The SV-GPS-2020 enables General Aviation’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.
SV-GPS-2020 Software Support
SkyView v14 includes support for the SV-GPS-2020, allowing US pilots to meet the FAA’s 2020 ADS-B Out requirements when paired with the SV-XPNDR-261 Mode-S transponder. SkyView’s new GPS Fix Status page and updated FAR 91.227 Compliance Status page help you ensure that you installation is configured properly.
Aircraft Glide Ring
SkyView v14 enables the display of a wind-adjusted aircraft glide ring by utilizing aircraft performance parameters such as best glide speed, sink rate, and height above the ground:
Checklist Templates can be obtained from the SkyView Downloads Page.
When in VNAV mode, go-around mode can be activated via any of 3 mechanisms: pressing any of the Nose Up button on the SV-AP-PANEL, the AUTOPILOT > PITCH > GO AROUND button on-screen, or an optionally-connected external button. Go-around mode changes the AP lateral mode to TRK mode with the approach inbound course as the target. Pitch mode is switched to either IAS or VS mode (dependent on setup) with the default climb VS or IAS selected. An “ADD POWER” annunciation is also provided on the PFD page.
Rotax 912 iS Improvements
Most Rotax 912 iS pilots are familiar with the two EMS lamps that let them know whether an engine issue requires that the aircraft be landed immediately. SkyView v14 adds two new alerts to aid pilots in interpreting those lamps. ROTAX: LIMIT FLIGHT OP is provided for engine issues that do not require an immediate landing. ROTAX: LAND AIRCRAFT is used for issues that do require that the aircraft be landed as soon as possible. This guidance is identical to that which Rotax provides in its engine operation guide. Note that installers can still connect the Rotax ECU lamp discrete outputs to SkyView contact inputs to display the actual lamps on a SkyView EMS page.
Over 30 More Software Improvements
SkyView v14 includes over 30 more features and improvements. See the full list on the Dynon Avionics website.
SkyView System Software Version 14 is available now from the Dynon website software download page.
