8 Vol.3 No.4 / April 2014 FLIGHTLINE DYNON AVIONICS HAS unveiled the new SkyView™ integrated avionics system. This latest edition of Dynon's fl agship product includes SkyView Touch™, two new control panels, and dozens of new features in SkyView 10.0 software. Michael Schofi eld, marketing manager at Dynon Avionics, said: "The New SkyView™ is the most intuitive and capable avionics system available. We've focused on creating an incredible pilot inter- face with SkyView Touch™ and new dedicated control panels. From the simplest light-sport aircraft to the most complex IFR aircraft, there's a SkyView for every panel." Dynon's pilot-engineers designed SkyView to have a clean and intuitive interface so pilots can focus on the fl ying, not the technology. SkyView Touch™ is priced at $3,995 (MSRP), only $395 above the non-touch, 10-inch display, and will be available this month. Dynon's commitment to supporting product platforms for years means that existing SkyView customers don't get left behind: every existing SkyView SV-D1000 display can be upgraded to touch for only $795. Complementing SkyView displays are the new SV-KNOB- PANEL and SV-AP-PANEL Control Panels, designed to minimize workload and provide the pilot the most intuitive and direct interface. The Knob Control Panel has dedicated controls for the most-frequently adjusted items - altitude bug, altimeter setting (baro), and heading/track bug. The Autopilot Control Panel provides single button activation of all autopi- lot modes, including LEVEL mode and fl ight director. It has a built-in two-axis speed-sensitive trim controller. Both products are backlit, dimmed by SkyView, and available in horizontal and vertical versions. The SV-KNOB-PANEL can be added to any SkyView system for $250 (MSRP). The SV-AP-PANEL can be added to any Sky- View system for $550 (MSRP). Both will ship in April. A new PDF brochure and more information about Sky- View™ is available at www.TheNewSkyView.com .
