SkyFYX: 2020 Compliant Navigation Source 2017-04-07T19:04:37+00:00

2020 Compliant GPS Position Source

Overview

SkyFYX combines a high precision WAAS GNSS sensor with an integrated RAIM processor. Resilient against jamming, spoofing and GPS range errors, SkyFYX provides reliable navigation in challenging environments.  SkyFYX is the most affordable ADS-B rule-compliant position source companion for the echoUAT.

The SkyFYX meets the performance requirements of 14 CFR 91.227. For use in Experimental and LSA aircraft.
