Wireless Chart Transfer with Seattle Avionics Slingshot
Pilots can now wirelessly transfer charts to their avionics displays using the Slingshot capabilities in Seattle Avionics’ FlyQ EFB app. This offers pilots an alternative to the current method, which involves loading USB memory sticks on a PC and physically bringing them to the aircraft. Slingshot simplifies this utilizing the modern wi-fi capabilities in avionics and mobile devices. To use Slingshot, pilots load the iOS-based FlyQ efb app with the charts, plates, and airport diagrams as they normally do while using the app. When connected via wi-fi to a Dynon display, Slingshot can transfer that ChartData on board SkyView. Slingshot capability requires a Seattle Avionics ChartData and FlyQ subscription.
For more information on how to use FlyQ, read Seattle Avionics' latest newsletter, which has detailed "how to" instructions and a helpful video:
With SkyView 16.2.4 software for experimental aircraft, we've added improvements to the system’s twin-engine monitoring capability.
This software release allows pilots of twin-engine aircraft to view both engines together on any engine monitoring display page. Previous versions required a separate SkyView display unit for each engine. This improvement enables dedicated twin-engine displays. It also allows any of the 50%, 20%, or bottom band EMS page views to contain instruments from both engines. These improved capabilities let pilots more easily monitor two engines in a single, compact location, minimizing workload when flying a more complex aircraft. This upgrade also includes new engine monitoring “widgets” that display both engines’ parameters on a single gauge.
