Skye Avionics recently traveled to Gold River and installed spidertracks S5 systems along with an iPad mini in each of Air Nootka’s aircraft.

By installing the spidertracks S5 system they receive reliable satellite tracking as well it will Bluetooth connect to the iPad and allow them to text between the base and each aircraft.

The iPad is a great choice as it will also be used as a portable GPS.

The owners of Air Nootka were very pleased with the installation and how easy it is to integrate the spidertracks and iPad. Now that they have the spidertracks system they are fully AFF and forestry compliant adding more capabilities to their company for a reasonable cost.

Skye Avionics is pleased to announce that they have become a stocking distributor for spidertracks. This alliance shall bring greater availability of spidertracks systems to Canadian operators and decrease delivery time as the S3 and S5 systems are in stock and ready for shipment.

The S5 spidertracks is an industry game changer. This unit allows Bluetooth connectivity and allows texting between the pilot and the base. There are also alerts generated if a position report is not received within a 15 minute period providing superior flight tracking and the ability to act immediately if there was an incident.

Skye Avionics has demo units available, for further information or to request a demo unit please email us at info@skyeavionics.com

Skye Avionics recently finished upgrading all of Wisk Air Helicopters Fleet of Bell 407 Helicopters.

The upgrade involved removing the Bendix/King KY196A VHF radios and installing Garmin GTR 225B VHF radios.

Over the last couple of years Skye Avionics has been working with Wisk Air to standardize their fleet and modernize it.

This upgrade now makes them compliant with all of the Ontario Forestry requirements and provides them with a modern, state of the art communication system.

The requirements were very specific and with the features that come with the GTR 225B they met them and gained many additional features. They have the ability to monitor the standby frequency, easily access an internal airport database when looking up and setting frequencies and have a powerful 16 watt transmitter.

Everyone at Wisk Air Helicopters was extremely pleased with the GTR 225B radio, what it can accomplish and the installation.

Skye Avionics technician travelled to and performed the installation at Wisk Air’s facility in Thunder Bay. Time was of the essence with flooding in northern Ontario and the fire season beginning. Aircraft were to be dispatched at any time and so this installation had to be accomplished in a very short period of time.

For more information about the Garmin GTR 225 radio or if you would like to request a quote for your installation please contact us.

We are pleased to announce that Skye Avionics is now an authorized dealer and installation facility for Galaxy Broadband.

Garmin has announced that they have designed a best-in-class and cost effective radar altimeter specifically for helicopters and general aviation aircraft.

 

The GRA 55 works to provide smooth altitude tracking and results in a consistent and highly accurate above ground level indication, even in the most challenging environments such as rough terrain, tree canopies, sand and choppy water. This solution includes the new GI 205 stand alone indicator, designed to pair with the GRA 55 or GRA 5500.

These solutions are able to provide pilots with rock solid confidence of their altitude above ground. The GRA 55 and GI 205 help fulfill recent FAA requirements for radar altimeter equipage in commercial helicopter operation.
