The D1 Pocket Panel

Yesterday at AirVenture 2012, Dynon Avionics unveiled its latest product, the Dynon D1 Pocket Panel.  The D1 is a true portable artificial horizon based on the same technology that drives Dynon’s proven EFIS systems. Since the D1 is portable and can be mounted and removed in seconds, it can be used by any pilot in practically any aircraft.

In addition to providing attitude, a high-quality, highly sensitive GPS receiver is built into the D1 to provide GPS ground speed, altitude, vertical speed, and ground track for enhanced flight situational awareness.

With over four hours of battery life, the D1 can be used with no connection to ship’s power. However, a “cigarette lighter” DC vehicle adapter is included if you want to keep the D1 fully charged at all times, and it can be set to turn on and off with the aircraft’s Battery Master through the DC outlet.

Priced at $1425, the D1 is available at Oshkosh from Dynon Avionics dealers, or it can be ordered from Dynon directly.
