...and it still boots!
Next time: Can a SkyView survive the weight of a car!? *
*Answer: no. We don't even need to try it. That was a joke.

PROGRESS SkyView has been flying in Beta aircraft for two months now, with all the hardware in place and working well. We are constantly adding software features and pilots are flying daily. They report that synthetic vision is a great enhancement.
SCHEDULE We are still on track to take orders and ship products on December 1st. It's not in the bag yet, and there are always a few incredibly difficult, impossible to solve problems to get over. But nothing out of the ordinary. :-) We have some features that won’t be available on day 1, but we’ve been reporting that all along. See our SkyView Webpage for updated information.
We will announce pricing on November 2nd, and be showing the latest version at AOPA Summit in Tampa. Stop by and say hi if you are there... we plan to show pilots who fly certified aircraft what they could buy if they went experimental or Light Sport.
GUESS THE PRICES CONTEST!!
Speaking of pricing; we thought we would offer a fun contest. Guess the list price for each of the following seven SkyView components, and if you are the closest, win one of two $250 gift certificates.

Send your guesses to: email@example.com We must receive them by October 26th to be eligible.
Official Fine Print: Contest void where prohibited. Anyone we may have already told or strongly hinted (magazines, dealers, OEMs, employees) are prohibited. Prizes are two $250 gift certificates redeemable for Dynon products. Winners will be chosen at random from among those who guess the closest. The decision of Dynon is final. We are doing this for fun so we hope everyone participates for fun! No cheaters!
