Dynon Avionics today unveiled the new flagship to its popular SkyView system. SkyView HDX features improved displays, beautiful design, unrivaled control ergonomics, and an upgraded touch interface. The new displays are compatible with all existing SkyView components and feature identical mounting profiles and electrical connections.
Robert Hamilton, Dynon president, says, “After spending thousands of hours sweating the details, homebuilders are rightfully proud of their aircraft. They deserve the premier glass panel—SkyView HDX.”
SkyView HDX features brighter, higher-resolution HD touchscreen displays with wider viewing angles and improved anti-reflective properties for the sharpest picture ever. The elegant design incorporates robust metal and glass construction.
Expanding on the SkyView philosophy of combining full physical controls with a touchscreen, the angled control panel allows for natural hand positioning, reducing fatigue. The wide, sculpted ledge allows you to anchor your hand for precise control in turbulence. New knobs have positive and crisp movement, and all controls are now fully-backlit for night flight.
Icon-driven touch controls and simplified screen navigation reduce pilot workload. The new engine monitor instrument band along the bottom of the screen affords an ideal instrument scan, while the expansive glass display can be touched edge to edge, with no bezel in the way.
SkyView HDX utilizes the same components and modules as existing SkyView systems. It has the same mounting footprint and wiring as other SkyView displays, allowing drop-in upgrades for pilots already flying behind a SkyView system. The new displays can also work side by side with SkyView Touch and SkyView Classic displays.
Two screen sizes are available: The 10-inch SV-HDX1100 display will be priced at $4,490.00. The 7-inch SV-HDX800 will be priced at $3,190.00. Both models are expected to be available this fall.
$500 price decrease for SkyView Touch, Classic, AF-5000 Series systems
Effective Monday, July 25 2016, all SkyView Touch, SkyView Classic, and AF-5000 series displays now include navigation mapping capabilities. This equals a savings of $500 per system compared to previous pricing, where the mapping software was an additional separate $500 purchase.
Michael Schofield, Dynon Marketing Manager says, “With the recent introduction of our entry-level SkyView SE system—which does not have mapping—and the unveiling of our new flagship SkyView HDX, we saw an opportunity to streamline the purchase of SkyView systems to best serve our customers. Now every new SkyView and AF-5000 customer will save $500 on their system, and they no longer need to ‘opt in’ to have world class navigation and mapping software in their aircraft.”
