When will SkyBeacon be available? 2017-08-16T09:30:26+00:00

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.

Will SkyBeacon meet the U.S. ADS-B 2020 mandate? 2017-08-16T12:38:46+00:00

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

What about a matching version for the starboard (right) wing? 2017-08-16T11:04:38+00:00

A matching starboard LED light assembly will be available as an option at release.

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? 2017-08-16T13:54:56+00:00

Yes, a version with rear position lights is also in development.

Will SkyBeacon work outside the U.S.? 2017-08-16T09:35:13+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.

Do you have an expected cost for SkyBeacon? 2017-08-16T09:38:31+00:00

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.
