The uAvionix AV-30-C panel display has received FAA STC (Supplemental Type Certification) approval in the US. The AV-30-C a replacement for the Attitude Indicator (AI) or Directional Gyro (DG).
uAvionix says the AV-30-C is installable as either an AI or DG and adds a suite of in-flight information to the panel right out of the box, including a Probeless Angle of Attack Indicator, Baro Corrected Altitude, Indicated/Vertical/True Airspeed, Non-Slaved Heading, Bus Voltage, G Load, GPS Navigational Data, and more with additional features to be announced.
The AV-30-C is designed to fit into nearly any aircraft with a three and one-eighth inch round instrument slot without cutting or modifying the panel. It is mounted from behind the panel thus keeping the aircraft’s original look.
The AV-30-C STC allows it to be installed in FAR Part 23 Class 1 and Class 2 aircraft (singles and twins weighing less than 6,000lb) that are listed on the AV-30-C AML (Approved Model List). This contains 635 aircraft models including Cessna, Piper, Beechcraft, American Champion, Maule, Boeing, Swift, Mooney, Aviat, and others. The full AML is available at uAvionix.com/AV-30.
“uAvionix is creating avionics with fundamental engineering advantages,” said COO, Ryan Braun.
“These are beautiful, no-compromise certified avionics designed to deliver an affordable total cost of ownership.
“The AV-30-C provides an innovative probeless angle-of-attack and non-slaved directional gyro, both designed to dramatically lower the cost of installation without compromising performance.
“Where other avionics seem designed to be replaced, the AV-30-C will get better with age. We’re actively developing ADS-B In, electronic flight bag, transponder, and autopilot integrations to ensure AV-30-C becomes an indispensable instrument for every panel.”
AV-30-C will support third-party autopilot systems via the APA-MINI adapter, interfacing AV-30’s Heading Bug with legacy autopilots. The APA-MINI autopilot adapter is expected to release early 2021, with more advanced autopilot integrations to follow.
Retail price in the US for the AV-30-C is $1995 (plus applicable tax and shipping).
