Pipistrel Announces Dynon Avionics as Standard Equipment in its Sinus, Virus and Virus SW models!

Pipistrel announces that it has chosen Dynon Avionics as the standard equipment in its new Sinus, Virus, and Virus SW models. This provides pilots with easy-to-fly, fuel-efficient and high-performing aircraft that have advanced pilot-friendly avionics. All Sinus, Virus and Virus SW aircraft, including LSA and kitbuilds, can be further upgraded to top-of-the-line dual redundant 7" or 10" SkyView Displays, with autopilot, transponder and ADS-B options.

For the flagship Virus SW 100 equipped with the Rotax 912 iS engine, Pipistrel selected the class leading SkyView system as standard.

Ivo Boscarol, Pipistrel CEO, says: “We have had a firm and successful relationship with Dynon which dates back to year 2002 and have always been impressed with their products. As customers are becoming more and more demanding, we decided to include these most advanced avionics already in the basic price of our aeroplanes. This not only gives our customers a better, safer and enjoyable flight experience, but is the best promise for future flexibility and choice of upgrades even years down the road.”

"Dynon is proud to be associated with such an innovative company," said Dynon Avionics president Robert Hamilton. "I have visited the impressive Pipistrel factory, and have seen first-hand how Pipistrel and Dynon are both committed to providing the best-designed and highest-quality products."
