Dynon Avionics’s SkyView HDX flightdeck is now approved for most Piper Seneca twin-engine aircraft.
Cost of the SkyView HDX system starts at $14,189. Twin engine monitoring with a dedicated display adds $7,377, and includes all engine probes such as CHTs, EGTs, fuel flow, and more.
Seneca II/III/IV/V owners can also add Dynon’s full-featured Autopilot with configurations starting at $8580 for a complete approach-capable two-axis system.
Dynon says its certified installation is typically 50 to 80 pounds lighter than the instruments it replaces, and usually allows the removal of legacy equipment such as the vacuum pump.
Michael Schofield, Dynon’s Director of Marketing, said‚ “With this approval, SkyView HDX is in a class by itself for affordable and capable twin-aircraft avionics upgrades. With SkyView HDX, Seneca owners can also add Dynon’s full-featured Autopilot for up to half the cost of other autopilots.”
The SkyView HDX core system provides complete primary flight instrumentation, including synthetic vision, and Navigation and Mapping with Flight Planning.
New to the Seneca approval is a complete twin-engine monitoring solution, covering all CHTs, EGTs, fuel flow, fuel computer, and lean assist. Also approved is Dynon’s fully-integrated two-axis autopilot, which features IFR approach capability when SkyView is integrated with a compatible navigator.
The approved installation also includes options for Mode S Transponder with 2020-compliant ADS-B Out, COM Radio, ADS-B Traffic and Weather display, and Electronic Flight Bag features. A complete set of standby flight instruments are provided by a Dynon EFIS-D10A.
The SkyView HDX Approved Model List (AML) now covers all Piper Aircraft PA-34-200 Seneca, PA-34-200T Seneca II, PA-34-220T Seneca III, PA-34-220T Seneca IV, and PA-34-220T Seneca V models.
Autopilot is available for Seneca II / III / IV / V models, except for serial numbers 34-7570001 through 34-8170092 when equipped with pneumatic de-ice boots.
