May 24, 2021 – Bigfork, Montana – uAvionix today announced it has received a UK CAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for its AV-30-C Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) for several hundreds of UK registered General Aviation aircraft models. With the STC approval, uAvionix will begin shipping product immediately to customers who have placed pre-orders either directly with uAvionix or through our trusted reseller network.
Extensive Approved Model List
Designated for installation as a primary attitude indicator or directional gyro in piston single and twin aircraft weighing less than 6000 lbs, the STC provides authorization to install AV-30-C on UK registered aircraft that are listed on the extensive FAA Approved Model List (AML), containing the majority of GA models from Cessna, Piper, Beechcraft, American Champion, Maule, Mooney, Daher, Textron, and others. The full AML is available at https://uavionix.com/products/av-30/.
Multiply the Benefits with tailBeaconX Control
When paired with the tailBeaconX ADS-B OUT Mode S transponder all-in-one solution, transponder control is right at your fingertips within the AV-30-C. Additionally, the certified GPS position source integrated into the tailBeaconX can be used as your slaved true-heading source for DG and GPS HSI indicator displays. tailBeaconX STC is expected in Q3 2021.
ADS-B Traffic Display
In May 2021, uAvionix announced AV-Link, the inline Wi-Fi bridge for the AV-30 panel display. Adding a suite of new features to the extensive 14+ featured AV-30 platform, AV-Link brings live airborne traffic to AV-30 from a supported ADS-B receiver and the ability to wirelessly update AV-30’s firmware. Additionally, AV-Link opens AV-30 to future functionality and connectivity with other wireless-enabled avionics in the cockpit. AV-Link is now available for experimental aircraft with the certified model expected to be available later this year.
Cutting-Edge Technology Without the Cutting
Requiring no panel modifications, the AV-30-C fits within a standard 3 1/8” round hole, blending seamlessly into your panel. As a primary instrument, the AV-30-C can be configured as either an Attitude Indicator (AI) or a Directional Gyro (DG) indicator. When installed as a non-required instrument (not replacing the existing approved AI or DG), the functional mode of the AV-30-C can be toggled between AI and DG, serving as a great backup instrument.
Compact, All-In-One EFIS for any Panel Style
AV-30-C fully self-contained with dual-precision inertial and pressure sensors and allows for a wide variety of pilot customization. When configured as an AI, primarily attitude and slip are always displayed. The unused portions of the display can be customized by the pilot to show a variety of textual and graphical data-overlay fields. When configured as a DG, direction of flight information is presented. The flight direction can be configured to be presented as non-slaved heading or inertially stabilized GPS track when connected to an external GPS source, including the integral TSO-C145e GPS contained within the tailBeaconX. Multiple display presentations, including compass rose, GPS HSI, and GPS Arc views can be selected by the pilot. The un-used portions of the display area can similarly be configured for a variety of textual data-overlays.
In both operating modes, the pilot may select from multiple visual styles which are intended to improve visual compatibility with legacy aircraft instrumentation and preserve the look and feel of older aircraft applications. An internal, rechargeable LiPo battery allows for operation for up to 2 hours in the event of aircraft power loss.
Probeless Angle of Attack (AoA)
Unique to any compact EFIS, the AV-30-C includes an exclusive probeless AoA system in any STC’d product. This system, first introduced in the AV-20-S Multi-Function Display (MFD), provides both visual and audio warnings as you approach a stall, without requiring external probe installations.
