Take a look at our frequently asked questions
SkyBeacon will be available for Experimental and Light Sport Aircraft late 2017. It will subsequently be available to a large number of certified aircraft through an Approved Model List Supplemental Type Certificate (AML-STL). Certification is expected in Q1 of 2018.
Yes, SkyBeacon will meet the 2020 ADS-B requirements.
A matching starboard LED light assembly will be available as an option at release.
There is a version of SkyBeacon with anti-collision lights (strobes) under development.
Yes, a version with rear position lights is also in development.
No. SkyBeacon transmits on UAT (978MHz). The UAT (978MHz) frequency is only approved for use in the United States below FL180 (18,000′). For international travel or flight above FL180, a 1090ES transponder is required.
We do not have a firm pricing at this time but we expect to offer SkyBeacon priced below $ 2,000 USD. Combined with the short installation time we expect SkyBeacon to offer the lowest cost of ownership.
