Dynon Announces Out of This World STC Addition

Dynon is excited to announce the first expansion of its SkyView HDX Approved Model List STC to OV-100 series spacecraft. This achievement comes only weeks after the successful approval that allows SkyView HDX to be installed into many models of certified Cessna 172 aircraft.


After a weeks long refurbishment process that included the installation of a Dynon-designed VTOL-enabled, scramjet-assisted, Vibranium-powered hybrid propulsion system, Space Shuttle Enterprise launched from a floating platform just off of New York City’s Pier 84. Many New Yorkers in the area were reportedly unimpressed. On-orbit, Dynonauts proceeded with a complete check-out of its avionics and propulsion systems.


Following a full shakedown of SkyView HDX, the Dynon Autopilot commanded the vehicle to perform a re-entry burn, culminating in the first ever carrier-arrested, autopilot controlled autolanding on the deck of the USS Intrepid. Despite the record-breaking achievements, local New Yorkers were still reportedly unimpressed. The orbiter is now back on public display on the Intrepid.
John Torode, founder of Dynon said, “I always knew we were a bunch of space cadets. Boy, was that neat! What’s next?”


This is the second use of Dynon equipment in spacecraft: Dynon’s first space missions occurred over a decade ago, when a Dynon EFIS-D10 provided lightweight backup electronic flight instruments in SpaceShipOne’s multiple flights into space.

STC ACHIEVED!


SkyView HDX is now STC Approved!

We're excited to share that we've just received our first Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for our flagship SkyView HDX system. The STC’s Approved Model List (AML), which initially covers many Cessna 172 models, ushers in a new era of truly affordable, safety-enhancing integrated avionics systems for type certificated aircraft.



The initial STC is for the installation of a full suite of Dynon avionics, allowing pilots to remove the vast majority of their legacy instrumentation, including their vacuum pump. The SkyView HDX system provides complete primary flight instrumentation, including synthetic vision and angle of attack, and complete engine monitoring with 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 a Mode S Transponder with 2020-compliant ADS-B Out, Navigation and Mapping with Flight Planning ADS-B Traffic and Weather display, and Electronic Flight Bag features. Backup primary flight instruments are provided by a Dynon EFIS-D10A.

Approved Model List

The initial Approved Model List (AML) covers Cessna 172F, 172G, 172H, 172I, 172K, 172L, 172M, 172N, 172P, 172Q, 172R, and 172S models. Approval does not restrict the operational use of the aircraft, and allows for flight in both IFR and VFR. Dynon will be seeking additional approvals for both single and twin-engine aircraft in the coming months.

Pricing and Availability

Pricing for the certified/PMA versions of approved Dynon products will be the same as existing experimental/light sport products. The STC for Cessna 172 aircraft is priced at $2,000. The first installations will be available in the coming weeks via US Sport Aircraft + Thrust Flight in Texas, Merrill Field Instruments in Alaska, and a Dynon-affiliated facility in the Pacific Northwest.

Introducing Dynon Certified

For years, pilots of certified aircraft have been forced to choose between maintaining their outdated, legacy instrumentation or upgrading their panel with expensive, piecemeal avionics upgrades. That changes now: The upcoming certification of Dynon’s flagship SkyView HDX system represents a breakthrough in the availability of affordable retrofit avionics solutions for type certificated aircraft.


John Torode, Dynon founder and CEO, says “For years, thousands of light sport and amateur-built aircraft pilots have benefited from Dynon’s intuitive, affordable, and safety-enhancing integrated avionics systems. We’re ready to bring the Dynon approach to the rest of the GA fleet.”



Dynon Certified systems are the first affordable, complete, integrated avionics packages designed to be installed in a wide variety of GA aircraft. With roots in light sport and experimental aircraft, Dynon products have already been installed in over 20,000 aircraft in hundreds of types, usually by amateur-builders. Dynon products are designed to install quickly and efficiently, minimizing the cost of modernizing aircraft panels.

SkyView HDX, Dynon’s flagship integrated avionics system, is coming to type certificated aircraft



The Dynon Certified line features SkyView HDX, Dynon’s flagship integrated avionics platform that replaces legacy equipment with a modern, affordable system. SkyView HDX can do it all: Primary Flight Display with Synthetic Vision and Angle-of-Attack; Autopilot; Engine Monitor with all EGTs/CHTs, Lean Assist, and Fuel Computer; Mapping with Flight Planning, ADS-B Traffic and Weather, and Electronic Flight Bag; Mode S Transponder with 2020-compliant ADS-B Out, Battery Backup and more. SkyView HDX’s bright touch screen works with ergonomic knobs and buttons to offer positive, intuitive controls in all flight conditions.

Dynon Certified: suitable for a broad range of aircraft and missions


Even early STC installations will encompass a range of light aircraft capability, from piston singles like the Cessna 172 to complex retractable twins like the Beechcraft B58 Baron. Dynon expects to continuously expand the approved model list (AML) to a broad range of type certificated aircraft.

Dynon Certified products: not just VFR

Installing SkyView HDX does not change aircraft certification basis or operating limitations. All primary flight instruments, including attitude, are fully IFR capable. The system also includes an independent backup EFIS. SkyView HDX is additionally compatible with popular IFR navigators like the Avidyne IFD series and the GTN/GNS series.

Dynon Certified Pricing and Availability

Dynon expects to receive STC and PMA approval for the Cessna 172 and Beechcraft B58 Baron shortly, with additional aircraft types to follow. Installation will be available through a Dynon direct installation center in the Seattle area, as well as through a network of approved installers. Pricing for Dynon Certified products will be the same as for the LSA/experimental versions, with affordable STCs priced separately. The cost of the equipment installed in the initial C172 is approximately $16,000. This complete SkyView HDX system includes Primary Flight Instruments, Engine Monitoring, Autopilot, Mode S Transponder with 2020-compliant ADS-B Out, Mapping with Flight Planning, ADS-B In Traffic and Weather, Battery Backup, and more. It also includes redundant flight instruments via a Dynon EFIS-D10A. The initial C172 STC will be priced at $2000.

Dynon’s New Dual Band ADS-B Traffic and Weather Receiver Now Available

The dual band SV-ADSB-472 receives ADS-B traffic via 978 MHz (UAT) and 1090 MHz. In the US, it also receives free text and graphical weather from the FAA’s network of ADS-B ground stations. Unlike portable ADS-B receivers, SkyView and AF-5000 pilots receive FULL ADS-B and radar traffic when the SV-ADSB-472 is paired with our Mode-S transponder and SV-GPS-2020. The remote mounted receiver utilizes an externally mounted antenna for superior ADS-B reception. 


The smaller, dual band SV-ADSB-472 is available now for only $795.

Already own an SV-ADSB-470? Dynon has an affordable trade-in program for existing customers.
