Dynon’s certified SkyView HDX system is now FAA-approved for installation into most Piper PA-34 Seneca aircraft.
This is Dynon’s first approval for a twin-engine aircraft, and includes SkyView HDX’s full range of capabilities, including twin-engine monitoring and two-axis autopilot, company officials said.
The Seneca approval covers Dynon’s full suite of avionics, including its two-axis autopilot with coupled approach capability.
A Dynon certified installation is typically 50 to 80 pounds lighter than the instruments it replaces, and usually allows the removal of unreliable legacy equipment like the vacuum pump, according to Dynon officials.
The SkyView HDX core system provides complete primary flight instrumentation, including synthetic vision, and Navigation and Mapping with Flight Planning.
New to the Seneca approval is a complete twin-engine monitoring solution, covering all CHTs, EGTs, fuel flow, fuel computer, and lean assist.
Also approved is Dynon’s fully-integrated two-axis autopilot, which features IFR approach capability when SkyView is integrated with a compatible navigator.
The approved installation also includes options for Mode S Transponder with 2020-compliant ADS-B Out, COM Radio, ADS-B Traffic and Weather display, and Electronic Flight Bag features. A complete set of standby flight instruments are provided by a Dynon EFIS-D10A.
Approved Model List
The SkyView HDX Approved Model List (AML) now covers all Piper Aircraft PA-34-200 Seneca, PA-34-200T Seneca II, PA-34-220T Seneca III, PA-34-220T Seneca IV, and PA-34-220T Seneca V models.
Autopilot is available for Seneca II/III/IV/V models, except for serial numbers 34-7570001 through 34-8170092 when equipped with pneumatic de-ice boots.
In addition to the Seneca, SkyView HDX is currently approved for installation into nearly 600 piston single aircraft models, with autopilots available for many C172 and Bonanza aircraft.
Dynon officials said they expect further approvals for both single and twin-engine aircraft in the coming months. In-progress aircraft/autopilot approvals include additional Bonanza models, C182, Beechcraft Baron, and the Mooney M20. Go to DynonCertified.com for the estimated timeline for future
