February 19, 2015 - Dynon Avionics has created a compact Wi-Fi adapter that links its popular SkyView glass avionics systems to the ForeFlight flight planning app running on an iPad. The Wi-Fi link is bidirectional so ForeFlight planning data on your iPad can flow into the SkyView while the Dynon system exports GPS, attitude, and other data into ForeFlight.

The tiny Dynon Wi-Fi adapter plugs into the USB port on the avionics display with no need for other wiring changes. The adapter is priced at $35 and you will need one adapter for each SkyView display installed in your airplane. You will need to be subscribed to the more advanced Mobile Pro version of ForeFlight and the SkyView displays must be operating on version 12.0 software.

With the SkyView and ForeFlight link you can load and modify flight plans on either device. You can also see most screens from the SkyView system on the iPad running ForeFlight so the combination essentially doubles options for viewing and controlling information.

Dynon is a leader in a full line of avionics for experimental airplanes and ForeFlight is a leading flight planning app for iOS devices so the marriage makes sense, and was one of the most requested new capabilities Dynon has received. The Wi-Fi adapters are ready to ship now.
