"Retro-Fit" Your Cockpit with a Digital Upgrade.
Upgrade your legacy vacuum-driven instrument to digital precision attitude and directional gyro customizable display.
I own and fly multiple aircraft and dont have a business affiliation with Aerovonics or uAvionix. I have been flying an AV-30 for months in an experimental aircraft. It has the most solid attitude indications in the business. I own G5s, GRT Mini GA and Sandia Quattros. The AV-30 attitude solution is something I would trust implicitly in IMC. I cant say that for some of the others. The AV-30 also doesnt require GPS signals for its attitude solution which can be a safety issue with some of the others. The screen is bright and beautiful and is the best one I have seen to date. The customize-able horizon depiction and fonts is a nice touch. It allows the unit to match the vintage of the aircraft or taste of the pilot. I have the AV-30 serial data input connected to my aera 660 GPS unit and they work very well together. In VFR cruise I usually use either the HSI display or EFIS arc. display and will swap back and forth between modes. The AV-30 has more features built in than any other mini EFIS display as of today. It is very well thought out. I cant wait to be able to put one in a type certified airplane after they receive approval.
When released this will be able to be used as a PRIMARY attitude display.
Yes, the Uavionix AV-30, part # 11-17556, is an FAA Approved unit. It can be installed in certified aircraft.
Per the manufacturer, there is no function to drive autopilots at this moment. However, they are working on something that will adapt to legacy STEC autopilots.
Per the installation manual Revision A on page 7, it states that the optional GPS interface is Moving Map / Aviation Protocol output provided by most panel mounted GPS units. This cannot use the Skybeacon GPS signal.
Per the installation manual Rev. A, it will not connect to a NAV/COM.
Yes. The manufacturer is creating a solution to allow this unit to connect to an autopilot. However, at this time, we are not aware of what autopilots will be available to function with the unit.
Yes, indicated AirSpeed could either be KTS or MPH on this unit.
In the overview we show that certification is pending. This SKU will be the certified unit, so we are selling it as certified. We will not receive or ship any units until they are FAA Approved and we receive the certified units from Uavionix.
Per the manufacturer, upon approval you will need 2 units for AI and DG. If the installation leaves no instruments that require the vacuum source, it can be removed. However, the removal of the vacuum source is not included in the AV-30 STC.
Per Manufacturer there is no vertical guidance at all. There is only the horizontal steering indicator when in DG Mode.
