Will Begin Shipping Product Immediately
uAvionix has received an EASA STC for its AV-30-C Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) for over 330 aircraft models available in Europe. uAvionix will begin shipping product immediately.
Designated for installation as a primary attitude indicator or directional gyro in piston single and twin aircraft weighing less than 6000 lbs, the STC provides authorization to install AV-30-C on aircraft listed on the extensive EASA Approved Model List (AML), containing over 330 aircraft models from Cessna, Piper, Beechcraft, American Champion, Maule, Mooney, Daher, Textron, and others. The full AML is available here.
When paired with the tailBeaconX ADS-B OUT Mode S transponder all-in-one solution, transponder control is immediately available. Additionally, the certified GPS position source integrated into the tailBeaconX can be used as your slaved true-heading source for DG and GPS HSI indicator displays. tailBeaconX STC is expected in Q2 2021.
Requiring no panel modifications, the AV-30-C fits within a standard 3 1/8” round hole. As a primary instrument, the AV-30-C can be configured as either an Attitude Indicator (AI) or a Directional Gyro (DG) indicator. When installed as a non-required instrument (not replacing the existing approved AI or DG), the functional mode of the AV-30-C can be toggled between AI and DG, serving as a backup instrument.
The AV-30-C is fully self-contained with dual-precision inertial and pressure sensors and allows for a wide variety of customization. When configured as an AI, primarily attitude and slip are always displayed. The unused portions of the display can be customized by the pilot to show a variety of textual and graphical data-overlay fields. When configured as a DG, direction of flight information is presented. The flight direction can be configured to be presented as non-slaved heading or inertially stabilized GPS track when connected to an external GPS source, including the integral TSO-C145e GPS contained within the tailBeaconX. Multiple display presentations, including compass rose, GPS HSI, and GPS Arc views can be selected by the pilot. The unused portions of the display area can similarly be configured for a variety of textual data-overlays.
In both operating modes, the pilot may select from multiple visual styles which are intended to improve visual compatibility with legacy aircraft instrumentation and preserve the look-and-feel of older aircraft applications. An internal, rechargeable LiPo battery allows for operation for up to 2 hours in the event of aircraft power loss.
