Thought I had a problem with one of my AV-30-C batteries, but after following Rebekahs (Uvionix Tech Dept) instructions, problem solved. Thanks Rebekah.

I recently had two AV 30 C installed in my Cessna 172 N. I bought all the fittings as recommended by a gentleman on this forum. The Instalation was done by Clint Farla from Century Avionics Lanseria Joburg. They were connected to the Garmin 430 in the aircraft and have been fantastic so far. I just flew on a trip to Malawi which was just over 1000 nm and they performed perfectly. I tend to use the moving map page rather than the DI or HSI page. I’ve still to work out a few features such as ETA to the waypoint ,if that is possible but very happy with the two instruments and with Clint’s work and attention to detail.

I simply can’t say enough… I love this instrument! Using and locked in as an AI. Packed so full of functionality, user friendly, super clean and sharp graphics. It also has directional indication as a supplemental field inlaid into the artificial horizon. I’m learning that it is often extremely accurate for long periods, and other times I wonder if it loses some accuracy. Not a complaint for me at all. It is easy to adjust the heading as well as heading bug , and makes long cross countries a breeze. Seems that uavionix is providing great support and continual oversight/upgrades through new software releases. This is absolutely gorgeous in my 172B.

HOLY IIMPRESSIVE AVIONICS BATMAN! This thing is the perfect replacement for the ~50lbs of vacuum instruments that used to be in my panel. Ditch the pump and put these in, you wont regret it!

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: Can this Uavionix AV30 be used as a backup AI in a certified aircraft?

This largely depends on on the STC of what is being backed up. Contact uAvionix for details.

Q: Is the Uavionix AV-30 unit authorized for certified aircraft?

Yes, the Uavionix AV-30, part # 11-17556, is an FAA Approved unit. It can be installed in certified aircraft.

Q: Will the certified AV-30 be able to drive my STEC-30 with the installed gps?

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.

Q: Can this use the GPS from my uavionics skybeacon?

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.

Q: Can the Uavionix AV-30 be interfaced with legacy king kx155 nav/comm?

Per the installation manual Rev. A, it will not connect to a NAV/COM.

Q: Will there be an analog converter for the Uavionix AV-30 so I can use this as the attitude reference for my century IV auto pilot?

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.

Q: My classic Cessna reads in mph, can I change IAS from kts to mph on the Uavionix AV30?

Yes, indicated AirSpeed could either be KTS or MPH on this unit.

Q: you say it has been certified, but uavionix site says not yet...

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.

Q: Regarding the UAVIONIX AV-30 PRIMARY FLIGHT DISPLAY - CERTIFIED: Will we need 2 units (1 for AI and 1 for DG) in a certified aircraft if we would like to remove our vacuum pump? Can it serve as primary for both all within one unit?

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.

Q: Does the HSI on the Uavionix AV-30 provide vertical (glideslope) guidance?

Per Manufacturer there is no vertical guidance at all. There is only the horizontal steering indicator when in DG Mode.
