Dynon SkyView for Cessna 172 and Beech B58 Baron
By Ian Brown
November 2017 - A recent announcement from Dynon Avionics indicated that several certified aircraft will soon be able to take advantage of the Dynon SkyView HDX electronic flight information system (EFIS). The first aircraft for which Dynon has obtained an approved model list (AML)-STC are the Cessna 172 and the Beech B58 Baron. Dynon expects to add other certified aircraft to the AML for the same STC.
According to Dynon’s website, the SkyView-certified panels feature SkyView HDX, which is a modern, affordable, integrated avionics platform that can replace legacy equipment. The panel includes a primary flight display with synthetic vision and angle of attack; approach-capable autopilot; an engine monitor with lean assist and a fuel computer; ADS-B traffic and weather; and a Mode S transponder with compliant ADS-B “out.” For full specifications and more information on the panel, visit Dynon’s website.
Installation of SkyView HDX will not change aircraft certification or operating limitations. All flight instruments, including attitude, are fully IFR capable, with backup provided by an independent second EFIS. SkyView HDX is also compatible with popular IFR navigators.
