Trig Avionics, specialists in compact certified avionics, is to launch its latest product at next week’s AERO Friedrichshafen GA show. It is the £299 TN72 GPS Position Source for an ADS-B Out transponder.
The TN72 is a certified TABS device (Traffic Awareness Beacon System) it provides visibility to all ADS-B traffic receivers. Trig aim to provide a free EASA Minor Change for popular aircraft types in the near future. Trig offers the TA70, a compatible GPS antenna that is certified to TSO-C190.
Trig marketing manager Jon Roper said, “In busy skies VFR pilots with a Trig transponder can become ADS-B equipped, using a TN72 GPS Position Source. This is a logical upgrade and a small price to pay for the benefit of improved safety. Recent EASA approval of the TN72 to ETSO-C199 means that a TN72 can be ordered now for delivery this month.”
