Default Dynon Introduces SkyView SE

Dynon is excited to introduce the newest member of the SkyView family. Dynon's new SkyView SE system offers a streamlined and simplified experience for pilots of simple VFR aircraft. The SV-D600 7" and SV-D900 10" displays are priced hundreds of dollars lower than existing SkyView displays.

SkyView SE



SkyView SE displays are made specifically for VFR aircraft and pilots who want the most intuitive flight and engine instruments on the market. They feature simple and clear displays, with almost no menus to navigate in flight. At the same time, SkyView SE retains modern, innovative Dynon EFIS capabilities like SkyView’s revolutionary COM radio interface and 2-axis autopilot with single-touch controls.

Without mapping capabilities, even the 7" SkyView SE display has a large, easy-to-read Primary Flight Display, including pilot-selectable six-pack "steam gauges". With its simplified feature set and installation, SkyView SE is the successor to Dynon’s legacy D100 series products (which remain available). SkyView SE systems configured like their D100 series counterparts are similar in price. SkyView SE displays have the same dimensions and mounting requirements as existing SkyView 7” and 10” displays.

Dynon expects SkyView SE to be popular with ultralight and simple light sport aircraft, where its low weight and low cost help make factory-built aircraft affordable. For aircraft in the US market, SkyView SE systems equipped with Dynon’s Mode S transponder and SV-GPS-2020 offer the lowest cost integrated glass panel system which meets FAA 2020 ADS-B Out requirements.

The 7” SV-D600 and 10” SV-D900 displays are priced at $1850 and $3100, respectively. A complete 7” SkyView SE system with primary flight instruments starts at $3305 including harnesses. For only $2790 more, SkyView SE customers can add the SV-XPNDR-261 Mode S Transponder (with ADS-B Out) and SV-GPS-2020 GPS Receiver/Antenna. Aircraft so equipped will be 100% compliant with the FAA’s upcoming ADS-B Out mandate.

SkyView SE is expected to start shipping in April 2016.

Features



Notes
1: Simplified Mode Only
2: No AP Controls: Trim Control & Autopilot Autotrim Only
3: Auto or Ext Knob Only
4: Via External Button
5: One External NMEA Source


More information, including an extensive FAQ, can be found at www.dynonavionics.com


Thanks!

Brilliant!
I've been a long time critic of the growing complexity of EFIS systems. Doing the right things right and lowering the price may be the ticket for the LSA and the average sport plane builder.

Buried in the feature list are also hints about something else coming....

That is nice. Presently using a 7" D180 for all that. I could be one step closer if all my D180 plugs would terminate to a module or to the back of that SE and make a D180 upgrade to SE a quick job with no under the panel rewireing !! But, nice looking VFR unit anyway.

Perhaps the next item would be a "Skyview SE-Map" version.

A moving map only display might be a good product and better than attaching (kluging?) an iPad in some fashion to your panel...

I'm missing any subtle hints. What is it you see?

Checklists? I've been out of the game for a while though, so maybe those are already implemented...

Does this have an integrated AHRS or GPS antenna, or are those still remote?

Im liking the looks of this a bunch. Simpler is good. Keep the programming code short and sweet (and robust). The lack of capability to connect to an external navigator like a 430 or 650 seems like a step backwards, however. After all, I can do that with my D-10A today through the HS-34. Did I read the FAQ wrong on that point?

That said, when I do want to upgrade to a full featured IFR suite, is this product expandable to a "full" SV system?
