  • I'd like to purchase SkyBeacon with the following options:

When will skyBeacon be available? 2018-03-05T17:06:45+00:00

skyBeacon is now available for Experimental and Light Sport Aircraft.  It will subsequently be available to a large number of certified aircraft after TSO approval Q2 2018.

Will skyBeacon meet the U.S. ADS-B 2020 mandate? 2017-10-25T20:40:06+00:00

Yes, skyBeacon will meet the 2020 ADS-B requirements.

Will it be available for my aircraft? 2018-05-17T13:37:20+00:00

Will it be available for my aircraft?

We recognize the ease (and low cost) of installation is a key differentiator, and will do everything possible to make installations on certified aircraft as simple as possible. At release, an STC will be available for several of the most popular aircraft models. We’ll work to quickly expand the Approved Model List, and expect that skyBeacon installations on non-STC’d models will be a minor alteration which can be signed off on by an A&P holding an IA or a Part 145 repair station. Finally, we’ve been working on a solution in a slightly different form factor for those who cannot fit SkyBeacon onto the wing.  We’ll be introducing tailBeacon, an ADS-B out solution designed as an LED tail position light replacement.  We expect tailBeacon to be available for the experimental market in early Q2 with certification by AirVenture 2018.
What about a matching version for the starboard (right) wing? 2017-10-10T10:29:36+00:00

A matching starboard LED light assembly will be available as an option.  The starboard assembly is under development and is expected to launch in 2018.

Will there be a version with strobes? 2017-08-16T09:41:17+00:00

There is a version of SkyBeacon with anti-collision lights (strobes) under development.

Will there be a version with aft (rear) position lights? 2017-10-30T11:20:01+00:00

At this time there is not a version with rear position lights in development.

Will skyBeacon work outside the U.S.? 2017-10-25T20:40:24+00:00

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.
