Did You Know? Dynon SkyView Autopilot - "Level" Mode

An exciting safety and workload-reducing feature in SkyView’s integrated autopilot is the LEVEL mode. This is an easily accessible mode intended to assist the pilot in controlling the aircraft, even in extreme circumstances such as recovering from an unusual attitude, pilot disorientation, or loss of control. It’s also useful when you want to quickly go “hands off” for a moment, at any moment.

New SkyView Training Classes and Videos

I'm just back at my desk after attending the first aviation event of 2014, the US Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Florida. Attendance was brisk, the weather was sunny but unseasonably cold -- though many of you are scoffing at my mention of cold when temperatures were merely in the 40's! -- and enthusiasm for aviation was running high.

Now back at my post, I'm hard at work pursuing one of Dynon's New Year’s resolutions: that is, to continue expanding our offerings of training resources for our world-leading SkyView avionics system.

Behind the Panel: Dynon Li-Ion Backup Battery Safety

From the very first EFIS system Dynon sold, we have believed that backup power for an EFIS should be affordable, easy to install, easy to maintain, and over all else, should enhance the operational safety of the aircraft.

Did You Know? Dynon Autopilot: Safety Features

In any aircraft equipped with an autopilot, it is critical for a pilot to be familiar with all the ways in which the autopilot may be disengaged or overridden. Dynon’s integrated autopilot system is designed with multiple failsafe features to ensure the autopilot can be disengaged, disabled, and even mechanically disconnected from the aircraft’s primary controls in the event of electronic or mechanical failure.
