We are pleased to announce that Kal Aviation has installed Spidertracks spider s6 units in 2 Citations.
The s6 satellite tracking devices worked flawlessly when mounted in the cockpit during the 2 week trial. This makes a very cost effective option for high quality flight following in a corporate jet.

The system is also able to integrate with flightaware which will provide them with further data and information.

Skye Avionics was able to supply a simple harness, drawing package and parts required to wire in the simple harness.

With the new spider 7 we will be able to meet more corporate aviation needs in a cost effective manner.

Skye Avionics is pleased to announce that Garmin has extended the GTN 625 promotion for new G3X and G3X Touch customers.

Now through Dec 31, 2016 customers who purchase a G3X or G3X Touch system will have the option to purchase a GTN 625 at a special, reduced price of $5495.

The GTN 625 WAAS GPS receiver adds a certified, IFR capable GPS position source to installations in light sport or experimental amateur-built aircraft. When interfaced to a GTX 23ES remote mount Extended-Squitter transponder, customers will have an ADS-B compliant installation and gain the ability to fly instrument approaches including LPV (Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance) capability. With its revolutionary touchscreen interface, GTN 625 puts primary functions just a few taps away. Pan across the map screen by swiping your finger across the 4.9-inch high-resolution TFT display, and enter waypoint data with the onscreen alphanumeric entry.

The G3X Touch is a touchscreen glass flight display system available in two sizes and designed for installation in experimental amateur-built and light sport aircraft (LSA).

Garmin is pleased to announce that the new GMA 350(H)c Bluetooth® enabled audio panel is now shipping!

Click here to SAVE MONEY and contact us for pricing!

The GMA 35c is expected to ship early first quarter 2016.

Designed for fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, the GMA 350c series incorporates Bluetooth technology for wireless access to music, phone, Garmin Pilot™ alerts and more. This adds to an impressive list of features, including industry-first Telligence™ Voice Command technology and 3D Audio processing, as well as enhanced auto squelch capability and more. These features decrease heads-down time and increase overall situational awareness in the cockpit.

The all-digital GMA 350c Bluetooth audio panel incorporates patented features and superior voice control to provide pilots with an exclusive feature set unmatched by any other audio panels on the market. Bluetooth technology provides more functionality in the cockpit, giving pilots the option to wirelessly connect a smartphone or tablet to the GMA 350c to easily make phone calls or to stream audio entertainment. Additionally, the GMA 350c series can be paired with the Garmin Pilot app to transmit terrain, obstacle or traffic alerts while in-flight. Pilot-controlled audio distribution ensures the appropriate communications are dispersed to passengers and crew accordingly.

Integration with VIRB XE, Garmin’s next generation HD action camera, brings a new level of capability to the GMA 350c series. Bluetooth Audio connectivity offered by the GMA 350c allows pilots to connect wirelessly to VIRB XE in place of a headset audio cable to conveniently overlay intercom audio and air traffic control communications while capturing rich, high definition video.

Telligence™ Voice Command allows pilots to activate select audio panel functions by spoken commands. For example, when workload is the highest, pilots can switch from approach to tower frequency with ease by simply stating “COMM one.” With stereo headsets, three-dimensional sound is simulated with 3D Audio, which mimics how pilots hear and process multiple audio sources. This technology differentiates the audio sources and their unique locations or seat position so they are easier to distinguish. For example, sound from COMM 1 will come from the left, whereas sound from COMM 2 will seem as though it’s coming from the right.

Advanced auto squelch automatically adapts to the volume level within the cockpit. An internal microphone senses ambient noise and adjusts cockpit speaker volume level to ensure important audio transmissions are heard throughout all phases of flight. The GMA 350c analyzes cockpit noise levels and adjusts speaker volume accordingly to ensure alerts are quieter on the ground and louder in-flight. The GMA 350c series includes pilot, copilot and up to five passenger stereo intercom. It also supports three stereo music inputs, as well as dual COMM, NAV and AUX audio inputs. A built-in digital clearance recorder can record up to 2.5 minutes of selected COMM radio transmissions, so pilots can optionally play back clearances or unclear radio transmissions.

Contributing to an easy and convenient upgrade path, the GMA 350c is pin-compatible with the GMA 340 and GMA 350. The GMA 350c is designed as a direct replacement for existing GMA audio panel installations and as a slide-in replacement for the GMA 350. For use in helicopters, the GMA 350Hc has the same core features as the GMA 350c, adding three COMM support, night vision compatibility and more.

The Spider 7 builds on the trusted and reliable platform of previous Spiders to deliver a simple flight tracking solution for operators of more complex aircraft. Now with two versions, the external antenna Spider gives operators the ability to attach an external antenna directly into the Spider. The external antenna Spider 7 comes with a 1/4″ SMA connector and can now be mounted in more discrete locations away from anti-icing features that can cause issues for GPS signals.
