uAvionix AV-30-C receives FAA STC

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 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).
