Part# 11-16531
MFR Model# UAX-90032-01


skyBeacon is a 2020 compliant, near zeroinstall, Class B1S ADS-B UAT transmitter and WAAS GPS integrated into a wing tip position light. The power transcoder decodes replies from legacy Mode C transponders. 14 CFR §91.227 compliant. Smart phone configurable over WiFi. skyBeacon is a revolutionary new way to equip ADS-B. Simply replace your existing navigation light with skyBeacon and you are ADS-B compliant for 2020.
  • 2020 Compliance
  • Mounts in under 10 minutes
  • Lowest total cost of ownership of any ADS-B Out solution

Install in Minutes

Installation is as simple as replacing the aircraft position light.
Simply replace the aircraft position light, that’s it! No airframe modifications or additional antennas are required. Plus, it works with any Mode C transponder. skyBeacon installation uses the existing mounting location, breaker and wiring, with 3 screws and 3 wires. The transponder data is provided via the existing aircraft wiring system using the power transcoder.

Remain Anonymous

Just because you are ADS-B equipped, doesn’t mean you want to be tracked. With skyBeacon’s Anonymous Mode, your aircraft identification remains hidden from the ADS-B OUT signal while squawking 1200. Anonymous Mode keeps the skies safe while protecting your privacy.

Self-Contained WAAS GPS

A built-in WAAS GPS provides skyBeacon with rule compliant position data for ADS-B transmission. No additional wiring or external GPS antenna mounting is required.

Works with Your Existing Mode C Transponder

uAvionix’s patented power transcoder technology seamlessly communicates with your existing Mode C transponder over your aircraft’s electrical system.

Instant Setup and Configuration

Mechanically installing skyBeacon is the first easy step. With uAvionix’s mobile app, configuration is just as simple. Our mobile application (available for both Apple iOS and Android) guides your installer through setting the necessary values including the ICAO address, emitter type, aircraft length, width and GPS offsets.

Wingtip Adapters

If your wingtip or lighting configuration is not supported by skyBeacon, you can purchase a fairing adapter kit for various aircraft.

      If your aircraft is not listed above, under FAA Memo titled “Installation Approval for ADS-B OUT Systems,” the FAA explains that after an STC is achieved for ADS-B OUT equipment, additional installations can be accomplished on aircraft not listed under the AML STC by an A&P with Inspection Authorization (IA) so long as the installation does not require airframe modification. This process requires completion of a two page FAA form known as a 337. A a mostly complete sample skyBeacon Form 337 is available under documents. Once the form is completed your installer will mail it into the FAA office in Oklahoma City. The process is normal for many ADS-B installations and your installer is likely familiar with the process.

I installed this Skybeacon ADSB Out on my L-29 Delfin and it works flawlessly. I admittedly watched a YouTube video about the installation, but it could not have been easier. Works like a champ.

Installed a skydive 182B. Its used for skydiving. Theres 3 wires on this. I had 2. Called UAvionix. Very technical response. Dont use the 3rd wire. App was easy to navigate. Called support and they REALLY stepped up. Easiest thing I have added to the plane. Highly recommend

Installed and configured in 1.5 hours by my IA at annual. Flew out of class B on cross country flight of 50 minutes and the FAA test report was perfect. Beechcraft Sierra. Total price including the Skybeacon and install was just under $2,000.

Please note, Aircraft Spruce's personnel are not certified aircraft mechanics and can only provide general support and ideas, which should not be relied upon or implemented in lieu of consulting an A&P or other qualified technician. Aircraft Spruce assumes no responsibility or liability for any issue or problem which may arise from any repair, modification or other work done from this knowledge base. Any product eligibility information provided here is based on general application guides and we recommend always referring to your specific aircraft parts manual, the parts manufacturer or consulting with a qualified mechanic.

Q: Is there a matching right side light to get the strobe and LED position lights?

No. Uavionix Skybeacon does not have a matching position light.

Q: Must I have a Certified Avionics Shop install this on a certified aircraft or can an AI with experience and proper equipment do the install and file the paperwork?

Yes, this must be installed and signed off by an A&P.

Q: How do I find out if my aircraft is on the TSO list for this UAvionix Skybeacon?

There is no specific aircraft that goes on a TSO. TSO units will require a 337 form, field approval.

Q: Will this UAvionix Skybeacon work with a King KT76A?

Yes. The Sky Beacon Nav light will work with a KT76A.

Q: Regarding UAVIONIX SKYBEACON NAV LIGHT STROBE CERTIFIED: I have a straight KT-76 will this work with my TXP, i do have mode C. Also, will the nav lights have to be powered on all the time?

Per the manufacturer, this will need to be powered on in order to fully function. This will also allow you to keep your KT 76 as the unit "sniffs" out your transponder signal.

Q: On the features page, it states that the skybeacon picks up altitude data from the transponder data stream, but Ive read that one of the TSOs is for the altimeter. Does this unit have a built-in pressure altimeter?

Per the manufacturer, this unit works in conjuction with the altitude encoder and transponder for altitude readings.

Q: Does this UAvionix Skybeacon Nav / Strobe Light ADS-B out unit qualify for FAA $500 rebate?

Yes, it does.

Q: Sky Beacon title description says Nav Strobe light built in, but text only describes the red Nav light function. Is there a strobe light built into the unit?

Per the manufacturer, All skyBeacon products now ship with an LED strobe. Note: Early experimental versions of skyBeacon did not have the strobe installed.

Q: Is the brightness of the UAvionix Skybeacon LED strobe as visible as a xeon strobe that it would be replacing?

The strobe light is extremely bright and follows the requirements for TSO-C96a

Q: What is the warranty policy?

uAvionix products are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship for one year from the date of installation in the aircraft.
