Oshkosh, WI – Monday, July 23, 2018 – 

Avidyne Corporation has announced that it is offering aircraft operators an ADS-B Premium Package during 2018 EAA AirVenture, which includes $2,500 cash back and a free ATAS upgrade  for customers who purchase a new Avidyne IFD550 GPS/Flight Management System (FMS) along with a Lynx® NGT-9000 ADS-B Transponder.

“In offering this promotion we wanted to put together an ADS-B package that includes two exceptional, premium products,” said Dan Schwinn, Avidyne President and CEO.  “The top-of-the-line Lynx transponder with ATAS and our IFD550 with ARS represent the state-of-the-art in dual-band ADS-B and GPS/FMS capabilities respectively, and this package provides significant capability and value for our customers.”

In addition to the $2,500 cash back from Avidyne after installation, this promo includes a free upgrade to the ADS-B Traffic Advisory System (ATAS) aural alerting capability on the Lynx system. ATAS is the FAA-approved traffic advisory algorithm that announces range, bearing and relative altitude of intruder aircraft through the cockpit audio system.

Avidyne’s IFD550 is a touchscreen navigator that provides SBAS/LPV precision navigation and is designed to meet the accuracy and integrity requirements for ADS-B, as part of the FAA’s NextGen airspace initiative. The IFD550, a direct replacement for legacy systems, has an integrated Attitude Reference Sensor (ARS), includes Synthetic Vision and integrated wireless connectivity, and was designed for ease-of-use, especially during single-pilot IFR operations.

The Lynx NGT-9000 is a turnkey solution for general aviation aircraft, providing enhanced situational awareness, ATAS traffic alerting below 500 feet, safety and ADS-B compliance.  The Lynx provides 1090MHz ADS-B OUT and dual-band (1090MHz and 978MHZ) ADS-B IN capability.   Lynx interfaces seamlessly with the Avidyne display for traffic, terrain, and graphical and textual weather, as well as moving maps depicting geopolitical boundaries. Up-to-the-minute Notices to Airmen (NOTAMs), Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs), and Winds and Temps Aloft data are also included.
