HOUSTON – April 7, 2022 – FlightAware, a leading digital aviation company providing global flight tracking solutions, predictive technology, analytics and decision-making tools and uAvionix, a global leader in certified avionics for General Aviation and UAS, announced a promotion to include a FlightAware Aviator+ piston airplane flight tracking suite subscription with each new uAvionix tailBeaconX transponder unit.
All tailBeaconX customers, purchased through uAvionix or a reseller will receive a 3 month FlightAware Aviator+ piston airplane ultimate flight tracking suite, plus 30% off a first-year subscription. Registrations for the promotion become available on May 1, 2022.
tailBeaconX, the world’s first STC certified transponder designed as a rear position light replacement, is a 1090 MHz Mode S/ADS-B transponder, SBAS GPS, and LED taillight all-in-one unit. The transponder meets performance requirements for all existing and upcoming ADS-B regulations worldwide, including those leveraging space-based ADS-B. tailBeaconX is the only non-diversity solution available for general aviation that will meet space based ADS-B performance requirements, saving aircraft owners thousands of dollars for equipment and installation as compared to a full diversity system.
Aviator+ is a complete flight tracking suite for piston engine aircraft owners and operators offering coordinated communication, a unified dashboard, and comprehensive flight history for up to ten tails per account.
tailBeaconX is uniquely designed to meet the growing use of space-based ADS-B for Air Traffic Surveillance through its unique dipole antenna design, capable of transmitting both towards the ground and up towards satellites. This expanded coverage will bring unprecedented safety benefits to general aviation operators, further enhanced through the use of FlightAware Aviator+.
Cyriel Kronenburg, uAvionix Vice President of Strategic Partnerships said, “tailBeaconX is an evolution in design and performance, slated to set the global standard for General Aviation”, “Through the Aviator+ subscription, tailBeacon operators globally get the operational security of a world-class piston airplane flight tracking suite, along with unlimited alerts, advanced weather, maps, surface tracking, FBO scheduling, and many other innovative features.”
