- Dynon Avionics
has unveiled the new SkyView integrated avionics system. This latest edition of Dynon's flagship product includes SkyView Touch, two new control panels, and dozens of new features in SkyView 10.0 software
"The New SkyView is the most intuitive and capable avionics system available," said Michael Schofield, marketing manager at Dynon Avionics. "We've focused on creating an incredible pilot interface with SkyView Touch and new dedicated control panels. From the simplest light-sport aircraft to the most complex IFR aircraft, there's a SkyView for every panel."
Dynon's pilot-engineers designed SkyView to have a clean and intuitive interface so pilots can focus on the flying, not the technology.
SkyView Touch is priced at $3,995 (MSRP), only $395 above the non-touch, 10-inch display, and will be available this month. Dynon's commitment to supporting product platforms for years means that existing SkyView customers don't get left behind: every existing SkyView SV-D1000 display can be upgraded to Touch for only $795.
Complementing SkyView displays are the new SV-KNOB-PANEL and SV-AP-PANEL Control Panels, designed to minimize workload and provide the pilot the most intuitive and direct interface. The Knob Control Panel has dedicated controls for the most-frequently adjusted items - altitude bug, altimeter setting (baro), and heading/track bug. The Autopilot Control Panel provides single button activation of all autopilot modes, including LEVEL mode and flight director. It has a built-in two-axis speed-sensitive trim controller. Both products are backlit, dimmed by SkyView, and available in horizontal and vertical versions.
The SV-KNOB-PANEL can be added to any SkyView system for $250 (MSRP). The SV-AP-PANEL can be added to any SkyView system for $550 (MSRP). Both will ship April.
