The AV-22 is a rod style transponder antenna utilizing its BNC connector for mounting to the airframe. The antenna is designed to operate at speeds up to 350 mph and altitudes up to 50,000 feet. It has a drag force of 0.41 lbs @ 250 mph. It is a direct replacement for the CI 101, and can also be used as an ABS-B antenna.
Was a direct drop-in replacement for my old Narco mono-pole antenna with quick, easy installation. Bonus is supporting a local USA company (RAMI is here in Michigan). Have yet to fly with it so no pirep on performance. Delivery via USPS was as quick as can be expected, especially during Covid slow downs.
Good quality TSOd transponder monopole antenna at a reasonable price. Fast shipping from aircraft spruce
thank you aircraft spruce for a fast and efficient delivery!
Yes, the AV-22 is certified (TSO'd).
The AV-22 is your standard transponder antenna where the AV-74 is intended for transponder or DME application with a higher speed rating of up to 350 mph and altitudes up to 50,000 feet.
Both antennas are similar in construction and performance wise.
The AV-22 installation manual does not specify the mounting location thickness. It has a drag force of 0.41 lbs @ 250 mph. Please refer to the AC 43.13 part number 13-06923 for acceptable mounting procedures.
No, this antenna is not recommended for use with the Garmin GDL 82. They recommend the blade style antennas.
This antenna does meet the requirements per the GTX installation manual. However, if you are interested in the GTX335 with GPS you will still require the GA35 as that is a WAAS GPS antenna. The AV-22 and the GA35 are not the same antenna.
Per the installation manual, Appareo only recommend one antenna. The AV-74 11-05846.
Depending on the application, RG400 and RG142 are great cable for any installation.
