Avidyne Gets European, US Approvals on AXP340
Avidyne announced U.S. and European Technical Standard Order (TS) approval of its AXP340 Mode S Transponder.
The AXP340 features Extended Squitter (ES) to transmit Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out information to ground stations and other ADS-B In-equipped aircraft. The solution gives General Aviation (GA) operators another option for complying with international requirements for ADS-B Out.
“The AXP340 is an easy-upgrade solution that meets the requirements for ADS-B Out in the U.S. and internationally,” said Patrick Herguth, chief operating officer at Avidyne. “AXP340 also has several new functions that make flying easier for pilots including direct-entry Numeric Keypad, one-touch VFR code entry, an easy-to-use stop watch timer, flight timer and altitude alerter.”
