SkyView Overview: Experimental and
LSA pilots know that they have the most technologically advanced GA aircraft flying.
SkyView continues that tradition with the next generation of glass panels, offering
redundant networks and systems, incredibly bright screens, design flexibility, and
future upgradability unsurpassed by anything else flying.
Designing Your SkyView System: To help you decide what System
components are required for your airplane, please see the Planning your SkyView
Features and Schedule : Please see our Current & Future
Features List for a detailed list of SkyView features. The SkyView System currently
includes the SkyView 7" & 10" Displays, ADAHRS Module, EMS Module, GPS Receiver/Antenna
Puck, Backup Battery, and Synthetic Vision and Top-Down Terrain. A subsequent product
launch (date unknown) will include our moving map navigation software option, autopilot,
and ARINC 429 converter module. And of course, we will be releasing many other SkyView
modules and software features that continue to build on this powerful platform for
years to come (e.g., advanced autopilot, COM radio, intercom, transponder, traffic,
Trade-ins: We appreciate our customer’s
return business, and are offering credit to customers upgrading their Dynon systems.
Trade in your Dynon D10/D100 Series EFIS and/or EMS and we will credit 1/2 the list
price towards the purchase of a new SkyView system. Please see our SkyView Rebate
Page for complete details.
The SkyView System consists of the following components:
Screens: Very bright,
high-resolution screens driven by advanced graphic processors create highly visible
and readable displays. Screen resolutions are 1024x600 for the SV-D1000 10”
and 800x480 for the SV-D700 7”. Brightness is over 1350 nits for the
10” display and 1200 nits for the 7” display. Displays are fully dimmable
for night flight. A wiring harness included with each display makes for easy connections
between displays and modules.
Integrated User Interface:
Two multi-position joysticks (left, right, up, down, diagonal, push, and rotary)
offer easy and intuitive control of your SkyView displays. EFIS, EMS, Autopilot,
Moving Map, 3-D Terrain/Synthetic Vision, and menu structures are all available
with less than three button presses. Future functionality will include external
video display, weather data, traffic, and complete COM radio, NAV radio, and transponder
Terrain Data: SkyView Displays are shipped with a US and South
American terrain database installed. Every other region of the world can be download
from our Worldwide Terrain Data page.
Network: Every SkyView system display and module is connected
by two independent power and data buses.
Battery Backup: A system backup battery will provide over an
hour of backup power to a Display and Modules. Each Display requires its own Backup
Battery for redundancy.
Flexible User Interface: The
default screen setups are logical and functional, so you can start flying with a
minimum of setup time. But as you determine your preferences and screen layouts,
the displayed data can be configured in ways that work best for you.
Module: The SV-EMS-220 can be mounted closer to the engine, allowing
easier wire routing. Note: the SV-EMS-220 cannot be mounted on the engine side of
Module: The SV-ADAHRS-200 is a complete MEMS-based attitude reference
and air data computer, integrated with a digital compass. This allows easier
mounting and higher accuracy calibration between the system components. One
or more SV-ADAHRS-201 Modules can be added to a SkyView System for redundancy.
Receiver: The SV-GPS-250 connects to the system backup battery
for greater reliability. Other NMEA compatible GPS receivers may also be connected
to the SkyView system and used in lieu of the SV-GPS-250.
Your existing Dynon engine monitor sensors and harness will work with the new SV-EMS-220
Engine Module. Your existing Dynon Servos will work with the SkyView system,
including a redundant network connection. Your existing Dynon pitot probes
will also work with the SkyView system.
Convenient program and data updates via USB memory stick.
