Bigfork, Montana – uAvionix Corporation announces SkyEcho, uAvionix’s portable Electronic Conspicuity ADS-B IN/OUT transceiver for the EU/UK, receives native in-app configuration support on SkyDemon, the popular Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) for pilots in Europe.
How it Works
The added in-app support allows pilots to enable/disable SkyEcho’s ADS-B transmission, set the transmitted callsign, and edit the aircraft’s hex code easily in a convenient settings panel in SkyDemon on IOS and Android. In most situations, once SkyEcho has been configured, the pilot will not need to adjust settings, however, by bringing SkyEcho’s configuration into the EFB, pilots who may fly multiple aircraft now have the ease of updating aircraft information transmitted by SkyEcho on the fly without leaving the application.

uAvionix and SkyDemon believe this integration will simplify SkyEcho’s ADS-B experience for pilots and provide those who may be unfamiliar with ADS-B a user-friendly solution to start flying safer with Electronic Conspicuity – without the frustrations many alternative solutions on the market present.
